A couple big numbers to report at the box office this weekend beginning with Nightmare on Elm Street. The horror remake from Warner Bros. and New Line paid off by taking the top spot domestically with $32.2 million.

Box Office Winner: A Nightmare on Elm Street

A pretty strong number for Elm Street, especially since last October somewhat proved that the typically gory horror had lost its box office guarantee. While the film took the top spot domestically, the international market saw a different box office champ.

Releasing a week earlier in plenty of territories overseas, Paramount's Iron Man 2 took in an amazing $100.2 million from 53 markets. Debut marks a rare occurrence that the international B.O. comes first in the summer push, with Paramount hoping to take advantage of the May Day holiday overseas, as well as lengthen playability before the World Cup in June.

With Elm Street being the only big taker in the States, the domestic box office was down a whopping 35% from the same frame last year, which saw the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
