Weekend Box Office – ‘Into Darkness’ numero uno but underwhelms

Posted: May 20, 2013 in Movies

It takes pretty lofty expectations for a film that makes nearly $85M its opening weekend to be considered a “disappointment”.  But that’s exactly what Star Trek Into Darkness‘ expectations have done.  J.J. Abrams follow up to 2009’s blockbuster brought in $85M through four days (Thursday-Sunday) – and has made the same amount of money through the same time frame as the original film.  The film has made nearly $160M worldwide, while it cost $190M to make.

Number two at the box office this weekend was Marvel’s Iron Man 3, which pulled in another $35M.  The weekend brought the blockbuster’s three week total up to $337M domestically.  Globally the film has made nearly $1.1B, which is just mind numbing.

Third at the cinema this weekend was The Great Gatsby, which pulled in $23M.  The weekend total brought the film’s two week total up to $90M.  The Great Gatsby cost $105M to make.

Rounding out the top five this weekend was Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain and The Croods.  The film’s made $3.1M and $2.7M, respectively.

Here’s the full top 10:
