Those are very good opening day numbers. Great? Pretty much. “Gatsby” opened on a late Thursday/Friday $19 million.
“Trek” will do most of its business Friday and Sat., but it is still on track to haul in about $100 million over its first four day “weekend.”
It is sucking residual audience away from “Iron Man 3” and that should mean that “Gatsby” comes in second, or a very close third, for the weekend.
