The Avengers and Iron Man 1 had absolutely no competition for a while following their releases.
BS, Iron Man 1 had to compete against Chronicles of Narnia and Indiana Jones. Speed Racer was a huge flop, much bigger than anyone predicted.
A billion is really not a lot of money anymore, especially for a thriving franchise.
I can't really get a read, on Great Gatsby, but I'm betting flop. But it will be no 1 for two weeks regardless, and I think it will have a 150 plus opening.
