LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Star Trek: Into Darkness” has warped its way to a $70.6 million domestic launch from Friday to Sunday, though it’s not setting any light-speed records with a debut that’s lower than the studio’s expectations.

The latest voyage of the starship Enterprise fell short of its predecessor, 2009’s “Star Trek,” which opened with $75.2 million.

Since premiering Wednesday in huge-screen IMAX theaters and expanding Thursday to general cinemas, “Into Darkness” has pulled in $84.1 million, well below distributor Paramount’s initial forecast of $100 million. The film has added $80.5 million overseas.

The “Star Trek” sequel bumped “Iron Man 3″ down to second-place after two weekends on top. Robert Downey Jr.’s superhero saga took in $35.2 million domestically and $40.2 million overseas to shoot its worldwide total to nearly $1.1 billion.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday:

1. “Star Trek Into Darkness,” $70.6 million.

2. “Iron Man 3,” $35.2 million.

3. “The Great Gatsby,” $23.4 million.

4. ” Pain & Gain,” $3.1 million.

5. ” The Croods,” $2.75 million.

6. ” 42,” $2.73 million.

7. ” Mud,” $2.25 million.

8. ” Oblivion,” $2.22 million.

9. ” Peeples,” $2.15 million.

10. ” The Big Wedding,” $1.1 million.
