    Star Trek warped into 1st place in it’s opening weekend with an estimated $72.5 million at 3,849 theaters on approx. 7,400 screens. Add in the $4 million from midnight screenings on Thursday night, and were talking nearly $77 million total so far. With J.J. Abrams behind this treatment of  the Gene Roddenberry science fiction franchise, Star Trek had it’s biggest opening ever in the series. Star Trek: First Contact was the closest earning $30.7 million or $50 million adjusted for inflation in it’s opening weekend.

    At the same time,  X-Men Origins: Wolverine saw a nearly 70% erosion of it’s audience with $27 million on it’s 2nd week, this makes it the least attended second weekend of the X-Men franchise.  For the rest of the weekends top 10, see the results below.
