Star Trek Moves Into Darkness At The Box Office This Weekend

Reported by Jay Cochran - 2013.05.19

The sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek finally opened this week and easily took the number 1 spot at the box office with an estimated take of $70.5 million, beating out Disney's Iron Man 3 which sat in the number 1 spot for the last two weeks. Although it took the number one spot, the actual box office take of $70.5 million may actually be a bit disappointing for Paramount which was forecasting a take that leaned more towards the $100 million mark.

Iron Man 3 fell to number 2 this week with an estimated take of $35.1 million, and Leonardo DiCaprio's "The Great Gatsby" dropped to number 3 with an estimated take of $23.4 million.

Mark Wahlberg and The Rock's "Pain and Gain" continues to hang around the Top 5, this week coming in at number 4 with an estimated take of $3.1 million, and "The Croods" rounds out the Top 5 this week with an estimated take of $2.7 million.

The ten estimated top-producing motion pictures for the weekend, per data collected as of Sunday, May 19, 2013 include:

1. Star Trek Into Darkness: $70,555,000
2. Iron Man 3: $35,182,000
3. The Great Gatsby (2013): $23,415,000
4. Pain and Gain: $3,100,000
5 The Croods: $2,750,000
