Well done, old sport!

For one night and one night only, The Great Gatsby kicked Iron Man 3's ass in theaters!

The threequel is the second highest-grossing superhero flick ever - having now made over $1 BILLION internationally - but Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation beat it out for the top-money-making flick in North America yesterday, with an impressive $3.9 million from 3,535 theaters!

Hell yeah! Leonardo DiCaprio still has it!

Meanwhile, the latest from Robert Downey, Jr. pulled in a close second, with $3.85 million from 4,253 screens!

As one exec puts it:

Iron Man 3 Secures SECOND BIGGEST Box Office Opening Weekend EVER!

iron man iron man 3 31861396 302 192(2)

Did anyone really expect otherwise this weekend?!

WE sure didn't!

Iron Man 3 has already DOMINATED during its early release in the overseas markets, took in an INCREDIBLE $15.6 million in its midnight release this past Thursday alone, and now, has effortlessly made its way to the TOP of the weekend's domestic box office top ten…with a momentous $175.3 million!

And while it didn't quite come close enough to break the $207.5 million record that The Avengers achieved this time last year, the super-hero threequel can now be considered the SECOND biggest opening weekend of all time!

Ah-MAY-zing! Maybe that Gwyneth Paltrow spin-off isn't so terrible an idea, after all!

Pain And Gain Tops The US Box Office While Iron Man 3 DOMINATES Overseas!

pain gain iron man3

Holy BLOCKBUSTER, Batman Iron Man!

The third installment of Robert Downey Jr.'s superhero franchise hasn't even opened in the United States yet, and within three days of international release in 42 overseas markets, has already made $195.3 MILLION!

That means the flick has already beaten out Avengers, which debuted internationally to $185.1 million…and we all know how THAT went on to do!

However, over here stateside, we still have a while to wait before we get to see Tony Stark in action, which means that for the domestic box office, it was Mark Wahlberg and The Rock's Pain and Gain which made the number one position, pulling in $20 million, and pushing last week's winner, the Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion, down to number two, with $17.4 million!

Jack The Box Office Giant Slayer Beat Out All The Competition In Theaters This Weekend!

jack slayer box office

Sorry! If you're not an Academy Award nominated film or starring Melissa McCarthy, movie-goers just are NOT interested in watching you this year!

Well, scratch that…sort of!

Although Identity Thief has done so well that after a month of release, it's made $100 million domestically and become 2013's first blockbuster, it was bumped from the number one spot in the weekend box office by none other than Jack the Giant Slayer!

However, even though Bryan Singer's fantasy epic came in on top, it's still considered a financial flop, as it cost nearly $200 million to make and only brought in about $28 million in its premiere weekend!

OUCH!

Of course, it still fared better than The Hangover with college kids 21 and Over, which made $9 million, as well as Ed Harris and David Duchovny's Phantom, which became the 15th worst debut for a film that opened on at least 600 screens!

How bad does that make it?

The submarine thriller was released to 1,100 theaters, yet still only made $465,000!

Again with the OUCH!

In retrospect, we think the team behind Jack should be counting their blessings that they managed to make what they made! It is ROUGH out there!

Ch-ch-check out the full, abysmal box office top ten this weekend….AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Identity Thief Steals The Weekend Box Office From Warm Bodies And Side Effects!

identity thief 1

Glad to see that one nasty, completely out-of-line review didn't detract audiences from the GLORY that is Melissa McCarthy!

Hell, even the Snowpocalypse couldn't keep movie-goers away from her!

In fact, despite all of the odds, the actress' new comedy with Jason Bateman, Identity Thief, topped the weekend box by pulling in an estimated $36.6 million…the FIFTH biggest opening ever for a non-sequel R-rated comedy!

Sadly, however, it seems that Blizzard Storm Nemo DID take a bit of a toll on the flick's business, as Universal Studios projected that had it not been for all the snow, it could have surpassed the $40 million mark!

Hey! Whatever!

It still beat out last weekend's #1 film, Warm Bodies AND Channing Tatum's latest collaboration with Steven Soderbergh, Side Effects, which respectively pulled in $11.5 million AND $10 million!

Check out the rest of this weekend's box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Hansel & Gretel Take Down Movie 43…And All The Other Box Office Competition!

hansel-gretel-witch-hunters-tops-weekend-box-office

As far as the weekend box office numbers are concerned, we guess it was a case of the lesser of two evils!

WELL…maybe not evil! But DEFINITELY the lesser of two SUPREMELY shiteous movies!

While Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was reportedly described as the "the longest 90 minutes you [will] ever spend in a theater," it still managed to make the most money across the United States by garnering the majority of ticket sales from Friday-Sunday and ultimately made around $19 million!

That's right, more folks sat through THAT then Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty AND Django Unchained!

Thankfully, however, the same CANNOT be said for Movie 43 and the hole in hell out of which it crawled, because even with its plethora of A-list talent that we won't further embarrass by naming here, a majority of movie-goers were smart enough to stay FAR away…resulting in a cumulative $5 million and movie reviews that refer to it as LITERALLY the worst movie ever!

OUCH!

But hey! You can find out where Jennifer Lopez's latest Parker fits in among all of thisAFTER THE JUMP!!!

Man Arrested For Choking His Girlfriend With His Dreadlocks??

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineHealth

dreadlocks choking oregon man scary wtf

We. Are. Not. Making. This. Up.

A man in Oregon has been arrested for a slew of things, including second-degree kidnapping, second-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree assault, menacing and domestic violence… because he choked his girlfriend with his super gross dreadlocks.

He was promptly booked into the Multnomah County Jail after a quick search around the neighborhood led to his arrest. As ridiculous as this is, it's still a very serious matter. Domestic violence is never a funny thing, even in this case.

We're glad this girl is okay, that she's safe and got away. We also hope she learned her lesson about dating people with dreadlocks — with hair that big, there may be more than secrets that abound!
