Star Trek Into Darkness Tops US Box Office Chart
But it's not quite up to full warp speed...

As expected given its success overseas and the incredible amounts of hype in the US, Star Trek Into Darkness easily made it to the top of the box office charts in the States this weekend. But though it handily knocked Iron Man 3 from the throne, it wasn’t quite such an impressive launch for the Trek sequel, as it scored $70.5 million, with $84 million including early screenings, according to studio estimates.

Tony Stark and co proved that they still have pulling power, taking home $35.1 million in second and blasting past $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The Great Gatsby was down one place to third with $23.4 million, while Pain And Gain also slipped a spot to fourth and $3.1 million. With no new family entertainment competition, DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods impressively jumped back up two places to fifth with $2.75 million.

Jackie Robinson biopic 42 fell to sixth, earning $2.73 million, with Oblivion in seventh taking in $2.2 million. Mud clung to eighth place, adding $2.16 million while Peeples sank to ninth and $2.15 million. Rounding out the top 10, we have The Big Wedding, which made $1.1 million.

To see Benedict Cumberbatch take on Robert Downey Jr in a box office brawl, head to Box Office Mojo.
