MOVIE NEWS: Wolverine Beats Star Trek’s Opening Weekend

Star Trek Box Office Numbers

Whatever you want to say about the weasels at Fox, X-Men Origins: Wolverine beat out Star Trek for the biggest Weekend.  Star Trek pulled in a not to shabby $76.5 million this weekend, but Wolverine pulled in $85 in it’s first few days. Now Star Trek is the much better movie getting better buzz and raves so I fully expect it to pull in more money than Wolvie overall.  The fact that Wolverine only scored $27 million in it’s second weekend says this.  But the problem is, May is so packed to the gills with big films, a lot of these movies will only have the opening weekend to make their big splashes. It’ll be interesting to see how far Star Trek will drop off in the wake of next weekend’s big openings.
