Although cast in obscurity by the Hangover's and Fast & Furious' opening weekend, sequel Star Trek into Darkness posted impressive numbers in its second weekend of release, adding $47 million over the four-day weekend to increase its domestic total to $155.8 million.
Blockbusters Iron Man 3 ($24.3 million, $372.4 million) and The Great Gatsby ($17 million, $117.7 million) both attracted plenty of moviegoers as well over the four-day weekend in their third weeks of release.
As the superhero film continues to climb towards $500 million domestic, Iron Man 3 has cashed in an astounding $1.15 billion worldwide, slotting in No. 5 all-time behind the final Harry Potter film ($1.34 billion).
Last year, Iron Man 3's studio, Marvel, chalked itself in history with a No. 3 spot on the all-time worldwide gross list with $1.51 billion for The Avengers. Fantasy film Avatar currently holds the top spot with $2.78 billion in 2009.
