(Newser) – The Star Trek franchise may be living long, but it hasn't quite prospered as well as expected this time around. Star Trek Into Darkness topped the box office charts in its opening weekend, but "only" made $84.1 million domestically—well under the $100 million many had expected, reports the LA Times. Still, it zapped another franchise juggernaut, Iron Man 3, into No. 2 with $35.2 million, followed by The Great Gatsby at $23.4 million, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
