'Star Trek Into Darkness' Nears $100 Million MarkMay 22, 2013 11:53 AM
Paramount's Star Trek Into Darkness grossed $6.76 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a sixth straight day. The second installment of the re-launched sci-fi franchise did fall a significant 15 percent from Monday's performance, which had been inflated by the Victoria Day holiday in Canada. Star Trek Into Darkness has grossed a softer than expected $98.45 million in six days and is set to surpass the $100 million mark today. The film is currently running just 0.6 percent behind the $99.00 million six-day take of 2009's Star Trek, 35 percent behind the $151.92 million six-day start of 2003's The Matrix Reloaded and 43 percent stronger than the $69.00 million six-day gross of 2003's Terminator Salvation. While early daily holds have been very solid for Star Trek Into Darkness, the film will obviously face a major test this weekend with Universal's Fast & Furious 6, Warner's The Hangover Part III and Fox's Epic all entering the marketplace.
Warner's The Great Gatsby continued to display midweek strength on Tuesday with a second place take of $2.75 million. The Baz Luhrmann directed film starring Leonardo DiCaprio was up one spot and 5 percent over Monday and down 42 percent from last Tuesday. Like Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby is also nearing the $100 million domestic milestone. With a stronger than expected twelve-day take of $96.26 million, The Great Gatsby is set to surpass the $100 million mark on Thursday.
Iron Man 3 was down one spot and 14 percent from Monday to place in third on Tuesday with $2.75 million. Disney's blockbuster superhero sequel was down 47 percent from last Tuesday. Iron Man 3 has grossed a massive $343.62 million in 19 days of domestic release. That places the film 35 percent ahead of the $255.05 million 19-day take of 2010's Iron Man 2 and 27 percent behind the $468.27 million 19-day gross of last year's Marvel's The Avengers.
