Epic placed third with a $4.8 million weekend in 532 screens. Fast & Furious 6 had a great hold-over performance, grossing $5.3 million in second place despite falling 60% from its opening weekend. Fast 6 has now grossed $24.2 million in the United Kingdom. The Great Gatsby added another $2.9 million over the weekend, seeing its total go to $12.7 million after two weeks in release. Star Trek Into Darkness continued performing strongly as well, coming in fifth place with $2.9 million and a $29.6 million cume. Iron Man 3 fell 57% in its fifth week, grossing under $1 million for the first weekend since its premiere. The superhero film has grossed a fantastic $54 million in the United Kingdom. The end of the club soccer season after last weekend's Champions League final, played in London, should clear up more space for movie-goers in the U.K. over the coming months.
