Iron Man 3 just can't stop making money for Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), says Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.
Days before the House of Mouse unveiled plans to bring the "Iron Man Experience" ride to its Hong Kong theme park, Iron Man 3 topped the video sales charts, beating the likes of World War Z and Star Trek Into Darkness. The film that earned $409 million at the U.S. box office and $1.2 billion worldwide is now showing signs of an extended rush of DVD and Blu-ray sales, Tim says.
Interestingly, Disney wasn't the only winner in last week's tally. Tim names another stock that's poised to do well thanks to a budding box office franchise that's also proving to be popular with renters.
