Despite seeming like a great Mother’s Day pick, The Great Gatsby was not able to defeat Iron Man 3 at the box office this weekend. Iron Man 3 made another $72.5 million and is up to a little over $949 million worldwide, and unless something drastic happens, it will almost definitely make over a billion. Gatsby took second place with a solid $51.1 million, easily the best opening ever of director Baz Luhrman and the second highest opening for Leonardo DiCaprio behind Inception. Pain & Gain dropped to third with $5 million. Peeples was a bomb with only $4.8 million, easily the lowest opening for a Tyler Perry produced movie. 42 rounded out the top 5 with $4.6 million. Other than that, nothing else really moved to drastically. The question for this weekend is will Iron Man 3 maintain it’s top spot or will Star Trek Into Darkness be able to take down Tony Stark?
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
