Iron Man 3 Takes Second Weekend, Gatsby debuts a Strong Second

Iron Man 3 easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend ($72.5 million), but it was also good news for the second place debut of The Great Gatsby ($51.1 million).

The Great Gatsby's fate became questionable when critic's reviews accumulated up to mediocre standards last week.

The Tyler Perry produced, Peeples, managed a fourth place finish, but it only equated to $4.9 million, which is a lot lower than expected.

Overseas, Iron Man 3 continued it's money-grab train with a huge $89.3 million, grossing $664.1 million total.  Worldwide, Iron Man 3 has already grossed $949 million. So, now it doesn't seem so out of the question that Iron Man 3 could match The Avengers' $1.5 billion.

Also overseas, Star Trek Into Darkness opened to a good $31.7 million.  It lands in North America this Friday.

So far, May is looking pretty big for the box office.
