It was a bit of a no-brainer when it came to predicting what would be #1 at the Box Office again this weekend. Marvel Studios has been on a roll, and Iron Man 3 is continuuing to be a money-making juggernaut. The film pulled in another $72mil, bringing it’s woldwide total around $948mil. It’ll no doubt reach a Billion dollars by the end of next week.
Just in time too, as Star Trek Into Darkness opens early on Wednsday night. In the meantime, the #2 spot was grabbed up by Baz Luhrmann‘s, The Great Gatsby. With $51mil, it’s easily Luhrmann’s biggest financial success, and it bit surpring that it even brought in that much bread. I can’t wait to see it myself!
