    Star Trek makes US$26 million on Saturday

    Deadline Hollywood, who got the Friday numbers right, say Star Trek made US$26mil on Saturday, an increase of 9% over Friday, bringing the weekend total now to US$57mil with Sunday to go!

    Sources tell me that Paramount's Star Trek did $26M Saturday. That's 9% more than the J.J. Abrams reboot made on Friday, which is a surprise and demonstrates that the pic is widening well beyond its rabid fanbase of Trekkies. I hear the studio is now confident the 3 1/2-weekend total on 3,849 theaters will reach $75M (which includes Thursday night's $7M screenings and Sunday estimate of $18M). The 3-day weekend totals $68M.

    I love the 9% increase over Friday. WOM is going strong here.

    BIGGEST weekend opening for Trek EVER.

    Good news. I think this movie will have great legs at the box office.

    According to my ISP's newspage, the numbers have already climbed to $31 million.

    That's not bad for just a few hours.

    I saw it again last night and the audience was much bigger than on opening day. Great news. We need these numbers if we want to have a sequel.

    Looks like James T. Kirk is whipping Wolverturd's ass like a rented effing mule, at least as far as legs are concerned.

    Now expect a serious dropoff when the Terminator and Transformer films come out. But this thing will hit its domestic targets and, I suspect, overperform internationally.

    Both two weeks away, so the big drop-offs will occur there. I think what's pushing this film is the fantastic word of mouth it's getting. People are seeing it and then saying - "hey that Star Trek film - it didn't suck! go see it!"

    I don't even remember the last time I've seen a movie twice in the week but this Trek film is just great. I'm not sick of it yet. Guessing another two times before I wait for DVD but damn its going to be a loooong wait.

    Same here. The only movie I saw in a cinema in 2008 was Iron Man. I have seen Star Trek twice in two days. Hopefully more like us!

    Transformers comes out in June actually. I'd also worry about Angels and Demons, that could steal Star Trek's thunder as a lot people find that crap more interesting.
