The crew of the USS Enterprise showed up early this weekend aboard the “Star Trek Into Darkness,” arriving at the #1 spot at the North American box-office with $70.6 million, thrilled to be in such dark, but entertaining company. Among the “company” Kirk and Spock kept was the “Iron Man 3,” who graciously took a step down to the #2 spot, collecting $35.2 million during this week’s travels. “The Great Gatsby” continued his party as well as his quest to reunite with a lost love on the exclusive island known as #3, accumulating $23.4 million in party funds. Looking for a crime caper offering no “Pain and Gain” among the select but inept body building clique?
