The new Star Trek movie has beamed to the top of the U.S. box office, taking an astonishing $72.5 million in its opening weekend.
The figures give J.J. Abrams’ film the biggest opening of any movie in the franchise’s history, and forces last week’s winner X-Men Origins: Wolverine into second place.
Hugh Jackman’s comic book hit still managed impressive weekend takings of $27 million, taking its ten-day total to $129.6 million. Romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past came in third with $10.5 million, followed by Beyonce’s Obsessed with $6.6 million. Zac Efron’s 17 Again rounds out the top five with $4.4 million.
That’s awesome! I just saw it twice, and now can’t wait to see it on DVD.
