No surprise here, but J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness looks to take the top box office spot before heading into the weekend.  Once expected to bring in a $100 million opening weekend, estimates are now hovering around the $70 million mark.  Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 was a distant second with almost $10 million.  Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby dropped off 61% from its opening weekend to grab $7.7 million this Friday.  Jackie Robinson biopic 42 and the Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi flick Oblivion rounded out the top five.
