“The Great Gatsby” wasn’t strong enough to best Ironman at the weekend box office.
But the latest movie version of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel did far exceed industry expectations, taking in 51.1 million dollars in its debut weekend.
“Iron Man 3” pulled in $72.5 million, to raise its total to $284.9 million after just 10 days in American theatres.
