17 May – "Robin Hood" and his merry men have outmuscled the two week box office hit "Iron Man 2" at the Malaysian weekend box office (13-16 May), topping most major cinemas within the Klang Valley namely GSC Mid Valley and Cathay Cineplex e@Curve. Meanwhile, the 1984 slasher remake "A Nightmare On Elm Street" garnered an encouraging response by waking up to third place behind "Iron Man 2".

GSC Mid Valley cinema manager Lee Kong Yew commented that "Ip Man 2" is still going strong, placing it in second at the cinema's box office, while "Iron Man 2" in 2D digital garnered better response than of normal 35mm version. According to Box Office Mojo, "Iron man 2" stormed past the US$200 million mark in ten days, and with US$212.2 million in the till, it's already the tenth highest-grossing comic book adaptation ever and ranks second for 2010, swooping past "How To Train Your Dragon".

"Robin Hood" starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett rides up to No.1.

Starring Russell Crowe as the sainted outlaw of Sherwood Forest, "Robin Hood" shot up Cinema Online's "Hot Movie Checks" on opening day (13 May), followed by "A Nightmare On Elm Street", "Ip Man 2", "Iron Man 2" and "Kidnapper". However, early studio estimates have shown that "Robin Hood" finished a distant second to "Iron Man 2" at the North American box office over the weekend.
