by Rachel

It's no surprise that "Iron Man 3" took the top spot at the box office this weekend and brought in a nice chunk of change......$175,300,000. WOW! It just shows that no matter how bad the economy, people are still willing to spend the money on a ticket to catch a good movie in the theater.

And even though "Iron Man 3" took in a staggering amount of money, it is not the best movie debut of all time. 

Here are the top 10

10. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1," $138,122,261

9. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2," $141,067,634
