Abrams' Star Trek Biggest Trek Ever

According to AICN, as of Monday, Star Trek (2009) is officially the top grossing film ever for the franchise passing previous king Star Trek: The Motion Picture by $100,000, and yep that is accounting for inflation. This is after only 46 days in theatres, by contract TMP was in theatres over a year which is unheard of now since at the time there wasn't a home video industry or the sheer volume of releases there is now.

Domestic Box Office (adjusted for inflation, in millions)
$51.4 Nemesis (2002)
$89.5 The Final Frontier (1989)
$92.2 Insurrection (1998)
$108.4 Generations (1994)
$116.8 The Undiscovered Country (1991)
$149.4 First Contact (1996)
$156.4 The Search for Spock (1984)
$176.0 The Wrath of Khan (1982)
$212.7 The Voyage Home (1986)
$240.7 The Motion Picture (1979)
$240.8 Star Trek (2009)

These number do not include overseas gross, but Star Trek is already the most successful film overseas too based on available data so top grossing of all time is not a reach.
