According to Film.com, "Star Trek Into Darkness" easily won the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $70.6 million ($84.1 million with Thursday factored in) to knock "Iron Man 3" off the throne.
That was well short of the $100 million Paramount was hoping for. But it's still a pretty solid take, especially considering the strong competition. Not only did "Iron Man 3" earn a robust $35.2 million in its third weekend of release, but "The Great Gatsby" also took in $23.4 million in its second frame.
Next weekend should be a battle royale as well, as all three blockbusters will be facing off against new mega-events "Fast and Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III" and "Epic." For now, though, you can check out the full box office report over on Film.com.
[From MTV News] As with all of Marvel's movies, "Iron Man 3" ended with an Easter egg — this time, a little button of a scene between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and a decidedly unengaged Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as the eponymous superhero recounts his post-"Avengers" experiences.
According to Mark Ruffalo, that scene was conceived and abandoned at least once before time actually came to film it. Get More »
It was a near run thing, but in the end "Iron Man 3" proved to be too powerful even for "The Great Gatsby," as Film.com is reporting the Marvel superhero epic took in an estimated $72.5 million in its second weekend to win the box office crown again.
Still, director Baz Luhrmann has to be pretty happy with the performance of "The Great Gatsby," which outpaced expectations to the tune of a cool $51.1 million. Looks like "Titanic" star Leonardo DiCaprio apparently still has his period piece magic.
Of course, all that success and excess came at a cost, and it was the new comedy "The Peeples" paying the price, as the Craig Robinson vehicle earned just $4.9 million in its debut.

One of the many perks Robert Downey Jr. gets with each new "Iron Man" sequel (besides a substantially bigger paycheck) is spending less time in those hot-rod red suits and more time in his trailer watching "Downton Abbey" with Jon Favreau.
With "Iron Man Three" rocketing to the top of the global box office, we thought we'd calculate just how much RDJ's Tony Stark has been slacking with each ensuing installment, leaving Rhodey and Pepper Potts to do the dirty work.
