Movie News: Star Trek Into Darkness Scores at the Box Office

Star Trek Into Darkness has warped its way to a $70.6 million domestic launch from Friday to Sunday, though itís not setting any speed records with a debut thatís lower than the studioís expectations.

The latest voyage of the starship Enterprise fell short of 2009ís "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.ís superhero saga took in $35.2 million domestically to lift its receipts to $337.1 million. The Great Gatsby, held up well at No. 3 with $23.4 million, lifting its total to $90.2 million.
