‘Great Gatsby’ gives ‘Iron Man 3’ a run for its money

LOS ANGELES

Gatsby looks almost as great as a superhero at the weekend box office.

Leonard DiCaprio’s “The Great Gatsby” partied like it was the Roaring ’20s with a $51.1 million debut that made it a surprisingly strong runner-up to comic-book blockbuster “Iron Man 3.”

Studio estimates Sunday put “Gatsby” at No. 2 behind Robert Downey Jr.’s superhero sequel, which pulled in $72.5 million domestically to raise its total to $284.9 million after just 10 days in U.S. theaters.

In third place was “Pain and Gain,” with $5 million.

The weekend’s other new wide release, Lionsgate’s romantic comedy “Peeples,” flopped at No. 4 with just $4.9 million.

In fifth place was “42,” with $ 4.7 million.

Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon late at night

NEW YORK

Seth Meyers is moving from his “Weekend Update” desk to his own late night show on NBC.

The network said Sunday that the 12-year “Saturday Night Live” cast member will replace Jimmy Fallon at the 12:35 a.m. “Late Night” show next year. Fallon is moving up an hour as Jay Leno’s replacement on the “Tonight” show.

Meyers was considered the lead candidate for the “Late Night” job ever since Fallon’s promotion was announced. The announcement solidifies Lorne Michaels as the comedy kingmaker at NBC. He’ll be the executive in charge of “Late Night,” “Tonight” and “Saturday Night Live,” which will all originate from New York’s Rockefeller Center.

Meyers, 39, has been the head writer at “Saturday Night Live” for eight seasons. He’s in his seventh year as “Weekend Update” host, to which he devotes all of his on-air time now.
