‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ scores at the box office

Continue reading below

“Star Trek Into Darkness’’ has warped its way to a $70.6 million domestic launch from Friday to Sunday, though it’s not setting any speed records with a debut that’s lower than the studio’s expectations. The latest voyage of the starship Enterprise fell short of 2009’s ‘‘Star Trek,’’ which opened with $75.2 million. Since premiering Wednesday in huge-screen IMAX theaters and expanding Thursday to general cinemas, ‘‘Into Darkness’’ has pulled in $84.1 million, well below distributor Paramount’s initial forecast of $100 million. The ‘‘Star Trek’’ sequel bumped ‘‘Iron Man 3’’ down to second place after two weekends on top. Robert Downey Jr.’s superhero saga took in $35.2 million domestically to lift its receipts to $337.1 million. Baz Luhrmann’s ‘‘The Great Gatsby,’’ held up well at No. 3 with $23.4 million, lifting its total to $90.2 million. (AP)
