Star Trek Into Darkness topped the Australian box office last weekend, grossing $5.2 million to put an end to the reign of Iron Man 3 as the highest grossing movie in the country. Iron Man 3 saw its gross fall 51% from the previous weekend, taking in $3.1 million to reach a $32.8 million cume.
The Big Wedding received more good news in its second week, grossing $1 million to make a sturdy $3 million cume that comes as a breath of fresh air after its woes in the U.S. box office. The Place Beyond the Pines opened in limited release and nearly beat Star Trek's per-screen average with $9,832 across each of its 64 locations. Spring Breakers opened in 48 screens but was unable to drum up as much interest, averaging $3,852 per location.
