Well, if you look at this page (link)
Abrams is a franchise slayer: first Star Trek, now on to Star Wars.
and scroll down a bit to look at the 'adjusted for inflation' section, Star Trek 2009 IS the top grossing film; and the only films that (again adjusted for inflation) grossed more than ST:ID were ST:TMP and STIV:TVH.
Actually TMP is the top-grossing movie in adjusted dollars by the worldwide numbers, though it's close. Gross is kind of useless for measuring box office success though; though overall obviously the Abrams movies did fine at the box office. Interestingly in terms of profitability
it's STID and not ST09 that ranks second (ST09 comes in fifth behind TVH and TWOK).
