Star Trek notched an estimated $11.9 million for its second Friday, and its tally climbed to $116.5 million in eight days. That makes it the highest-grossing Star Trek movie, surpassing Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home's $109.7 million. Taking into account the estimated numbers of tickets sold, though, it ranks eighth, topping Star Trek: Insurrection, and is on the verge of eclipsing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: Generations by the close of the weekend.
While Star Trek's 56 percent Friday-to-Friday drop was steep, it was actually a smaller dip than Iron Man, which was off 58 percent to $14.9 million on its second Friday. If Star Trek plays out like Iron Man and comparable titles, its second weekend will land close to $40 million.
While continuing to be the least-attended X-Men movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine had a third Friday percentage fall that was smaller than the last two movies. The prequel grossed an estimated $4.3 million, bringing its tally to $140.6 million in 15 days. That suggests its third weekend will be in the vicinity of $14 million.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past had a decent hold for its third Friday, down 33 percent to an estimated $2.1 million for a $35.3 million 15-day total, while Obsessed was off only 30 percent to an estimated $1.45 million for $59.5 million in 22 days. 17 Again and Monsters Vs. Aliens had even lower percentage drops.
