Box Office: Trek Hits No. 1 at Warp Speed


J.J. Abrams' reboot of Star Trek was a smash success this weekend with an estimated $76.5 million (including $4 million Thursday night), taking the top spot at the box office (though not surpassing X-Men Origins: Wolverine's opening weekend take of $85 million, as so many of you thought it would). This was "the biggest Trek opening yet, soaring past the previous high of Star Trek: First Contact, which started at $30.7 million or the equivalent of over $50 million adjusted for ticket price inflation."

Meanwhile Wolverine "wilted to an X-Men franchise low" in the wake of Star Trek, coming in at No. 2 with an estimated $27 million. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past took the third spot, followed by Obsessed and 17 Again in fourth and fifth place.

Sounds like good word of mouth quickly spread about Star Trek. Were you swayed by the stellar (ha, ha) reviews? Did you head out to see it?

This was so good!!!! I am more of a Star Wars fan than a Trekkie, but I just became Spock obsessed.

I am Trekkie (albeit I really liked the Star Trek:the Next Generation and not so much the original series) and I went today to see the movie. It is great fun in many ways! I thought the casting was very successful and Quinto is as always very yummy!!

My husband and I went and saw this last night at the local Imax theater and it was no let down. I'm not a trekkie or even really know much about the previous series(s) so it was very entertaining to me. I think Chris Pine did a fantastic job and Zach Quinto ( think that is his last name) is just a cutie and I loved watching both of them on the screen. J.J. Abrams did an amazing job. I loved it.

AMAZING movie!!! Great lines, great characters, great storyline. It was a complete joy to see this movie. I wasn't a trekkie before this movie, but I think I am now. IMO, J.J. Abrams has succeeded in rejuvenating this franchise.

i'm not at all surprised that it was #1 although i'm sad that it didn't beat x-men. oh well. i have to say though that as much as i like the new kirk, i might like the new spock better.

I really wanted to go see it and I am not a trekkie at ALL. I have never seen an episode of Star Trek. But I love Star Wars and most other types of sci-fi adventure movies so I want to go. My husband does not. Ironic.

I know so many people, Trekkies and non-Trekkies, who wanted to see this. My dad (a mild Trekkie) wants to see this, and he doesn't even go to the movies!
