'The Great Gatsby' Before and After VFX Clip, For Your Consideration

Much to the chagrin of Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio (but mostly Baz Lurhmann for Leonardo DiCaprio), almost no one's penciling "The Great Gatsby" into their early awards season ballots for the directing, acting or best picture category prizes. Not even the year's resident weird voter Quentin Tarantino.

But the door's not closed on "Gatsby's" Oscar chances yet. Get More »

'Fast & Furious 6' Races to Box Office Victory

Universal Universal

According to Film.com, "Fast & Furious 6" debuted to an estimated $98.5 million to lead a record setting Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks to the presence of six bona fide blockbusters, Hollywood is estimating an incredible $320 million take over the extended four day weekend, shattering the previous record of $276 million set two years ago. Besides "Fast & Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III" ($42.4 million), "Star Trek Into Darkness" ($38 million), "Epic " ($34.2 million), "Iron Man 3" ($19.4 million) and "The Great Gatsby" ($13.7 million) all reached eight figures.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Beams Up Box Office Win

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount

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.

Box Office Brawl: 'Iron Man 3' Outduels 'The Great Gatsby'

Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Great Gatsby" Warner Bros.

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.

For a look at the full box office top ten, head to Film.com.

'Gatsby Girls': 'Mean Girls' Meets 'The Great Gatsby'

gatsby-girls-220Do 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.

It's one of those can't-unsee-once-you-see situations, but it's cool. There's just no arguing with it — the man wears a pink suit, for crying out loud.

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.
