'Star Trek' draws $76.5 million
'Wolverine' earns $27 million in second weekend

Paramount's "Star Trek" launched in stellar fashion during the weekend as the sci-fi prequel soared to $76.5 million in estimated domestic boxoffice in its stretched first frame.

Box Office Results

Thursday evening previews contributed $4 million to the total and midnight Thursday performances $3 million as the well-reviewed film re-invigorated the studio's storied franchise with an opening smack in the middle of an unusually broad range of prerelease forecasts. Paramount execs had said they'd be pleased if "Trek" traveled anywhere north of $50 million during its first session.

Fox's Hugh Jackman starrer "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" finished second during the weekend, falling 68% from its opening grosses to register $27 million and push its 10-day cume to $129.6 million. Warner Bros.' romantic comedy "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner, fell a modest 32% in its sophomore session to $10.5 million in third place, with a $30.2 million cume.
