Another Weekend, Another Box Office Summary

Star Trek continues its slow decline down the box office ladder showing remarkable resiliency despite stiff competition. By now most movies have dropped off the top 10 entirely but Star Trek took the 7th spot for the weekend.

US Box Office results:
1) The Proposal - $34.1M in its debut
2) The Hangover - $26.8M, 18.1% drop
3) Up - $21.3M, 30.6% drop
4) Year One - $20.2M in its debut
5) Taking of Pelham 123 - $11.3, 51.7% drop
6) Night at the Museum 2 - $7.3M, 24.1% drop
7) Star Trek - $4.7M, 13.8% drop

This brings the domestic total of Star Trek to $239.4M in 45 days of release. I wasn't able to find the foreign box office results but more than likely that total was probably a couple of million as the movie performed well compared to its predecessors but compared to other movie releases this year, it was not a strong showing. As it stands, the worldwide total for Star Trek is at $358,046,263.

On a related note, the film has now taken the top spot as the most attended Trek film in franchise history according The calculation is based on a buying power calculation that accounts for inflation to estimate the audience of each film. Check out the graph for the calculated numbers.
