Star Trek: $7 Million From Thursday Showings!

May 8, 2009

Just pulled this little tidbit from Nikkie Finke over at DHD:

FRIDAY 10:50 AM: Sources tell me that Thursday screenings starting at 7 PM, including midnight shows, made approximately $7 million for Star Trek. “There was a big core fan turnout,” one of my insiders says, “so you can’t extrapolate to weekend numbers.” Nevertheless, it’s a great start.

Star Trek‘s $7 million figure is very good, but doesn’t signify a monster box office over the weekend, and I’m still feeling confident about my original $67 million prediction for Thursday through Sunday. Vote using the poll on the right sidebar to guess how much it will earn this weekend, and keep checking back over the weekend to see how Star Trek is doing!
