‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Tops Weekend Box Office With $70.6M
J.J. Abrams has another hit to his name.
Star Trek Into Darkness has taken the No. 1 spot from Iron Man 3 to win the weekend box office, thanks to some $70.6 million in ticket sales. The sequel to 2009’s Star Trek has grossed a domestic four-day total of $84.1 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Iron Man 3 finished its third weekend with another $35.2 million for a grand total of $337.1 million. (Marvel’s got nothing to worry about though — the film recently passed the $1 billion mark in worldwide ticket sales).
Meanwhile, The Great Gatsby grossed $23.4 million to sit comfortably in third place. The Baz Luhrman picture, which played in fewer theaters than the first two films, has grossed a domestic total of $90 million since opening one week ago.
Pain & Gain and The Croods round out this weekend’s top five, with $3.1 million and $2.75 million, respectively.
