Star Trek faced one new major release - Angels & Demons - in its second weekend and dropped 42.8% to #2. STiD faced three major new releases. It held up well. Its overall box office gross is likely to fall short of Paramount's pre-release hopes and expectations, but it'll still be profitable, still be one of their top franchises and still lead to a sequel, perhaps with the budget trimmed back some.
BTW, does anyone think the movie will come even close to $500 million at this point as many predicted?
