Iron Man 3 *Cheesy Pun About Flying Its Way To The Top For The Second Week In A Row [Weekend Box Office]
From Box Office Mojo
Iron Man 3 *soared to the top of the American domestic box office in its second week of release, bringing its cumulative total to $284M. Add that to a foreign haul of $664M and Marvel’s flagship Avenger property should easily reach a billion by the end of the week. You can find our video review here. Spoiler Alert: It’s pretty good.
It was also a good weekend for anachronistic soundtracks. The Great Gatsby took second place with a strong $51M, proving yet again that moms can’t get enough loud, shiny things. Gatsby’s solid performance dwarfed 2008′s other F. Scott Fitzgerald adaption The Curious Case of Forrest Gump. Get our video review for Gatsby here. Spoiler Alert: Meh.
Rounding out the rest of the top five are Michael Bay’s HGH-fueled real crime satire, Pain & Gain , Tyler Perry’s awkwardly titled urban [read black] comedy, Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, and the Jackie Robinson biopic/answer to everything, 42.
