IRON MAN 3 BEATS THE GREAT GATSBY TO TOP OF U.S. BOX OFFICE

Sunday, May 12, 2013 - Iron Man 3 is continuing to destroy the U.S. box office after raking in $72..5 million (=C2£46.78 million) in its second week on release.

The blockbuster, featuring Robert Downey, Jr. as the comic book superhero, drew a staggering $175.3 million (=C2£113 million) to score the second highest-grossing opening weekend in U.S. history last week (ends05May13) and it's still proving to be a big draw - the film has now banked a whopping $949 million (=C2£612.3 million) worldwide.

Iron Man's domination prevented The Great Gatsby from reaching number one

on the chart - Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, debuted in second place with a strong $51.1 million (=C2£32.97 million).
