Box office report: 'Iron Man 3' leads with $72.5 million; 'The Great Gatsby' shines in second

If second place is the first loser — then this week, that’s a pretty great place to be. Warner Bros.’ literary adaptation The Great Gatsby stunned the industry today with a magnificent $51.1 million debut. Of course, that number wasn’t large enough to take down Disney’s superhero sequel, Iron Man 3, which topped the box office for a second weekend with $72.5 million, but it’s impressive nonetheless. Ah, the summer movie season: when films actually make money! (Provided that they’re not called Peeples.)

Iron Man 3, which had the second best opening of all time last weekend with $174.1 million, fell 58 percent in its second frame — a slimmer drop than Iron Man 2 managed (59 percent), but a heftier one than The Avengers scored (50 percent). Iron Man 3‘s gargantuan $72.5 million weekend gave it a sizzling $17,400 per theater average from 4,253 locations and lifted its domestic box office total to $284.9 million after just 10 days. Internationally, the film is proving even more invincible. The $200 million Marvel title has now earned $664.1 million overseas, led by massive business in Asia. Iron Man 3’s top two international markets are currently China ($95.3 million) and Korea ($54.1 million), and it has become the highest grossing film of all time in both Indonesia and Malaysia. Worldwide, Iron Man 3 has grossed a truly jaw-dropping $949 million, guaranteeing it will surpass $1 billion sometime this week.

In second place, Baz Luhrmann’s roaring ’20s drama The Great Gatsby took in $51.1 million — the third best opening weekend ever for a film that didn’t hit No. 1. (In 2004, The Day After Tomorrow debuted with $68.7 million but trailed Shrek 2. In 2009, Sherlock Holmes started with $62.3 million but couldn’t overtake Avatar.) The glossy F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton, broke out at the box office despite middling reviews and a “B” CinemaScore grade.

Box office preview: Will 'Gatsby' have a great opening?

Almost a full year after the first trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D adaptation of The Great Gatsby debuted, the much-buzzed-about (and long-delayed) F. Scott Fitzgerald tale is finally coming to the big screen. Gatsby will Charleston its way into theaters on Friday alongside Tyler Perry’s latest comedy, Peeples. Neither of the newcomers has a legitimate shot at taking out Iron Man 3, which will soar in its second weekend, but that doesn’t mean they won’t make an impact at the box office. To the contrary, Gatsby‘s prospects look surprisingly strong.

Here’s how the box office may look this weekend:

New trailer for Tyler Perry's 'Peeples' features Craig Robinson and family reunion antics

Meeting your girlfriend’s parents is never easy, but it can make for a lot of antics and physical comedy worthy of a Tyler Perry-produced movie.

That’s the subject of Peeples, where Craig Robinson (The Office) stars as Wade, the boyfriend of Grace Peeples (Scandal‘s Kerry Washington), who has yet to introduce Wade to her family even after a year and a half of dating. It’s a tough introduction to make when your family is very successful — her dad’s a federal judge — and might not be too welcoming of your Average Joe boyfriend.

Despite Grace’s insistence that she go to her upcoming family reunion in the Hamptons alone, Wade decides to show up in hopes that he’ll cozy up to her family enough for them to welcome his planned marriage proposal. Check out what happens next in the trailer below, which hit the web today. READ FULL STORY

First Look: 'Tyler Perry Presents Peeples' with Kerry Washington -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

After a year and a half, it’s probably time for your parents to meet your boyfriend. But for the Type A Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington), she’d rather delay it just a little longer. In Tyler Perry Presents Peeples (out May 10) Grace tells her boyfriend Wade (Craig Robinson) not to accompany her on her trip home to Sag Harbor for Moby Dick Day – a Peeples family tradition.

“Grace hasn’t told her family a lot about [Wade] at all,” Washington told EW. “She loves Wade very, very much and fears that he won’t accept them and they won’t accept him, and it makes her want to avoid the immersion. If she can just hold it off longer, maybe she’ll figure out how to do it perfectly. Or maybe Wade will suddenly become more successful.”

Wade decides to crash anyway.
