Baz Luhrmann's 3D extravaganza "The Great Gatsby," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, scored an impressive $19.4 million in its opening day.
However, it wasn't quite enough to edge out the reigning champ, Marvel's Robert Downey Jr.-powered "Iron Man 3," which led Friday with $19.7 million.
Meanwhile, in third place was Michael Bay's caper comedy "Pain & Gain," which muscled up another $1.3 million.
The relatively low-budget film stars Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg and has so far earned $37.9 million.
The Tyler Perry-produced "Peeples" debuted in fourth place, earning just $1.1 million.
Kerry Washington and "The Office's" Craig Robinson star in the film, although it doesn't appear likely that it will hit the same box office highs as some of Tyler's previous films.
The Jackie Robinson biopic "42" closed out the top five on Friday, scoring $1.1 million, brining its domestic total to an impressive $81.1 million.
