Iron Man 3
This weekend, the box office bore witness to an epic earnings battle between two rich, famous, charismatic, self-destructive film protagonists: the “Great” Jay Gatsby, and Iron Man 3’s Tony Stark. As glitzy and popular as The Great Gatsby was, it was ultimately no match for the superhero allure of Iorn Man 3.

Iron Man 3

Pain and Gain
Despite a bleak critical reception for last week’s new releases, both of the new films made a decent showing for themselves in the box office, if not fantastic (or even consistent with their predicted weekend revenues). Pain and Gain made its way to the top spot this weekend, earning $20 million.

The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend.

Both of last week’s new releases did very well in the box office this weekend—even despite the arguably vast disparity in quality between the two releases.

Scary Movie 5
Today introduces two new releases that could not be more incongruous—one is a heartwarming based-on-a-true-story film about overcoming adversity, standing by what you believe in (even if it’s insanely unpopular), letting your actions speak louder than your words, etc. The other is the fifth installment in a B-list comedy franchise that simply refuses to die.
