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.
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.

Do you ever just sit around thinking about how Baz Luhrmann's interpretation of "The Great Gatsby" and "Mean Girls" are basically the same movie? Neither did we.
Until we totally did.

Here are 10 memes that will forever unite Tina Fey's classic high school comedy (and Lindsay Lohan's finest work, sigh) and F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel in your mind.
"And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy." ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Great Gatsby"
Greetings from the apocalypse! This is an exciting week for me, since I'm making my art gallery debut and all — I'm celebrating with two docs covering cool artistic subcultures (gig posters and tattooing), as well as a hella ton of Mother's Day recommends.

Secrets are no fun ... unless it's coming from Leonardo DiCaprio.
The "Great Gatsby" star may be known throughout Hollywood for his good looks and killer acting chops, but the guy has a secret. Or rather, he has at least 20 of them.
When flipping through pages and pages of photos of the star, we notice something — either Leo's in an epic game of Telephone or he likes to get up close and personal when he tells people stuff. And, giving the reactions of stars like Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and more, those whispered nothings are pretty darn funny.
Hit us up in the comments and let us know what YOU think he's saying to these 20 other celebs.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby" was first published in April 1925 and has since gone on to be read by millions of high school students around the globe, proclaimed as the second-best English language novel by the Modern Library (right behind James Joyce's "Ulysses") and all in all a brilliant depiction of the Roaring Twenties and a scathing deconstruction of post-WWI American idealism.
