3460724466_7fabe9f28aStar Trek (72.5 Mil.) Really glad this baby did well. It deserves the money. J.J. Abrams rebooted a cult franchise to make an already popular story and extend it to a wider audience. If you didn’t see it yet, see it now. I’m not a fan of the show and loved the hell out of it. It truly is a perfect summer movie: hilarious, action-packed and great pacing. Live long and prosper.

Xmen Origins: Wolverine (27 Mil.) The negative buzz is probably why this movie dropped as bad as it did. Nonetheless, it’s almost at 130 Mil. in it’s second weekend. Not bad.

Ghost of A Girlfriend’s Past  (10 Mil.)-  Mediocre rom-com is hanging in there. Guess people still want to see Matthew McConaughey after all…

Obsessed (6.6 Mil.) – Yup America is still OBSESSED! (Kind of) Not gonna lie, I’m really surprised this movie is making this much money. 56 Mil? Guess Beyonce’s charm put a ring on its success… or something.

17 Again  (4.4 Mil.) – Pretty boy, Effron is hanging in there. Looks like he can make a hit that doesn’t involve singing and/or dancing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Next Day Air (4 Mil.) – Doesn’t seem like a strong opening… but look what it’s battling with: only in a little over 1000 screens, minimal marketing, mediocre reviews, lack of any real big name stars (most notable one is probably Turk from Scrubs) and it’s competing with one of the most anticipated films of the summer. 4 Mil. isn’t bad business for a movie like this (especially since the budget probably isn’t that high).    3468187051_9beca22d94
