Not Even "The Great Gatsby" Could Best "Iron Man 3" in the Box Office This Weekend

Tony Stark is truly unstoppable. According to Vulture, this weekend's box office was once again dominated by juggernaut of a film Iron Man 3, despite the release of Baz Luhrmann's highly anticipated The Great Gatsby. The third film in the Marvel franchise managed to pull in a whopping $72.5 million its second week in theaters - bringing its worldwide total earnings to $949 million so far. Hardly chump change.

That's not to say Gatsby didn't do well though - Luhrmann's adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald book hauled in an impressive $51 million, coming it at number two in the box office. Meanwhile, Michael Bay's Pain & Gain dropped to the number three spot with $5 million, and Tyler Perry's The Peeples debuted at number four with $4.8 million.
