WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Iron Man 2 repeated at No. 1 with 53 million.  It's 59 percent drop might worry Disney a bit, but breaking the 200 million mark in 10 days instead of 9 is not such a terrible thing, really.  Robin Hood opened in second with 37.1 million and -- given the reviews and its surly star -- came closer to Tony Stark than most expected. That 200 million budet looms large, but Crowe & Co. will likely do much better overseas.  Letters to Juliet went wide in the third slot with 13.8 million.  Just Wright was just fourth, with 8.5 million -- on the low end of a Queen latifah opening.  Rounding out the Top Five is the oh-so-leggy How to Train Your Dragon which piled up another 5.1 million, for a domestic total of 207.8 million.
