Iron Man 3 continues to dominate the box office as its second weekend has brought in an additional $72. 1 million domestically.

However, this weekend's box office didn't go without any competition as Warner Bros.' The Great Gatsby debuted strong with female movie goers netting $51 million for the Leonardo DiCaprio-starring film.

Iron Man 3 is just short of a billion as it's worldwide gross now stands at about $950 million.

If we compare numbers to Marvel Studios' previous film, we do see Iron Man 3 is trailing behind The Avengers.

The Avengers had a $200 million opening with Iron Man 3 coming in at $174 million.

The second weekend for The Avengers brought in $103 million, while Iron Man 3 nabbed $72.1 million.

The Avengers third weekend saw $55 million.

Comparing to The Dark Knight Rises: $160.8 million for week #1; $62.1 million for #2, and $35.7 million for its third week.

Most likely Iron Man 3 will hit a billion by next weekend.
