Another week, another win for Star Trek Into Darkness.
Despite a huge marketing barrage set forth last week by Marvel and Disney for Iron Man 3, it fell short of catching up to the top spot. Nevertheless, the new trailer and posters for the highly anticipated May kick-off film did help Tony Stark regain the #2 spot. Man of Steel fell back to third.
In it's final week of eligibility, Oz: The Great and Powerful notched up three spots to fourth place. While families really drove the film's opening this past weekend, Sam Raimi and genre film fans were among the movie's supporters as well.
Meanwhile, Dead Man Down exited in a tie at #21. Little other notable activity transpired on the chart this week as no films entered or left the top ten.
