Iron Man 3 Still Ruling US Box Office

Iron Man 3

As Iron Man 3 rockets towards the $1 billion mark, the film stayed firmly at the top of the US box office this weekend, earning $72.4 million for a running domestic total of $284.8 million (and $948.9 million worldwide at the time of writing).

Yet Tony Stark’s enormous success didn’t stop another party-loving, troubled hero from doing well despite tough odds. Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby overcame some seriously mixed reviews to launch in second place with a healthy $51 million. Pain And Gain was forced down into third place, earning $5 million, while new Craig Robinson comedy The Peeples (which features Tyler Perry as a producer) took home $4.8 million its first weekend in fourth. Fifth place went to Jackie Robinson biopic 42, which slipped from third for $4.6 million.

Oblivion was down to sixth, taking home $3.8 million, while The Croods fell to seventh and $3.6 million. The Big Wedding continued to shrink, sliding to eighth with $2.5 million, while Mud was down a couple of places in ninth ($2.3 million) and Oz The Great And Powerful rounded out the top 10 with $802,000.

To see wealthy men do battle for the hearts of American audiences in the full chart rundown, head to Box Office Mojo.

RE:
It'll be interesting to see how much The Great Gatsby cost as you feel it's box-office will drop off big style in the coming weeks what with Star Trek, F&F 6 & The Hangover Part 3 all coming out? More
