Cung Le’s ‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ Has Strong Opening Weekend

Former Strikeforce champion Cung Le’s The Man with the Iron Fists opened this weekend.

According to the movie site, the film brought in $8.2 million from the 1,868 theaters that showed it. That numbers puts it fourth behind Wreck-It Ralph, Flight and Argo.

The film stars Le and Hollywood notables Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu. Le will be in action this Saturday at UFC on Fuel TV: Franklin vs. Le against former UFC champion Rich Franklin.

Also, the MMA-inspired film Here Comes the Boom brought in another $3.6 million during its fourth weekend in theaters. The movie, which stars Kevin James, has grossed just over $35.5 million.

Have any of you seen either/both films? If so, what did you think?
