Box Office Breakdown: ‘Gatsby’ Was No Match for ‘Iron Man’

Iron Man 3

Despite its buzz, glamour, and the return of Leonardo DiCaprio in a Baz Luhrman production, The Great Gatsby clearly stood no chance against Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man this weekend.

Iron Man 3 took in an impressive $72.4 million, securing its second consecutive week at the top while The Great Gatsby debuted with $51.1 million. Pain and Gain fell to number three with just $5 million and Tyler Perry Presents Peeples earned $4.8 million in its first week, marking it as number four in the box office chart. The baseball drama 42 fell two spots with its $4.6 million take, rounding out the top five.
