Box Office Results: Star Trek travels at warp speed to the top

Studio Estimates (May 8-10):

1.  Star Trek – $72.5 million
2.  X-Men Origins: Wolverine – $27 million
3.  Ghosts of Girlfriends Past – $10.5 million
4.  Obsessed – $6.6 million
5.  17 Again – $4.4 million

To no surprise, Star Trek was the box office champion this Mother’s Day Weekend with an impressive $72.5 million (approx. $80 million if you count Thursday’s gross).  In addition to the movie being a box office hit, it was a smash hit with the critics as well, receiving a 96% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 228 reviews.  After the success of X-Men Origins: Wolverine last weekend, there was an announcement for a Deadpool spin-off sequel.  Do I smell a Star Trek sequel in the near future?

As for the other new release this weekend, Next Day Air failed to make the Top 5.  It placed #6 at the box office with only $4 million.  The rest of the Top 5 that followed Star Trek were Wolverine, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Obsessed, and 17 Again.

Check back on Friday when the summer blockbuster season continues with yet ANOTHER prequel, Angels & Demons starring Tom Hanks.

    The lure towards Consolidate Credit is actually that the loan that you need to help with managing future
    spending habits and curtail unnecessary expenditure.
    Enable the debt consolidation loan.
