Default How much money will the new Star Trek movie take in this weekend?

Guys how much money will the new Star Trek movie take in this weekend?

Im going to say about 79 million.

What do you guys think. What are your predictions for what it will make this weekend.

Anyone want to guess what it will make in total. I'll say about 190 million.

Opening weekend record is $158m for Dark Knight. I think Trek will be big, but I don't think it will be that big, too early in the season still.

Come to think of it, I'm going to revise down to $80m. Opening weekend is a three day total and won't include all the Thursday night screenings. So the weekend total will basically miss opening day entirely.

hahaha. You know how to get P@t going... But I agree. If that excreeta of a film "watchmen" brought that much in, Trek will be upwards of 200M

DICKHEAD!

That means you're watching the opening credits/scene, about now????

Oh well, our Aussie friends have to get "something" to make up for model/shipping/customs costs compared to most the rest of us I guess?

ENJOY Mike!

I can't wait to see this movie Friday night. I will see it the day before my birthday. It should be a great present from Paramount.

Tell us what you think of it Mike.
