The Great Gatsby raked in an estimated $51.1 million over the weekend, bowling over analysts' predictions of $35-40 million. But it was not enough to displace Iron Man 3 as the No. 1 film at the box office. The Disney/Marvel threequel collected another $72.4 million in its second weekend, nearly half of it on Saturday. (On Friday Gatsby and Iron Man wound up in a photo finish with around $19 million each.) Iron Man 3 thereby raised its domestic total to about $284 million. With an overseas gross of around $664 million, it now is on the verge of crossing $1 billion worldwide. All other films at the box office performed poorly, including Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, the only other one to debut over the weekend. It grossed just $4.8 million, the worst result ever for the debut of a Perry-directed or -produced film.
The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Box Office Mojo:
1. Iron Man 3, $72.5 million; 2. The Great Gatsby, $51.1 million; 3. Pain and Gain, $5 million; 4. Peeples, $4.9 million; 5. 42, $4.7 million; 6. Oblivion, $3.9 million; 7. The Croods, $3.6 million; 8. The Big Wedding, $2.5 million; 9. Mud, $2.4 million; 10. Oz The Great and Powerful, $802,000.
