The race was on with these two anticipated movies. Things looked great for X-Men Origins: Wolverine last weekend at the box office when they smashed the competition with $85 million in sales.

The big question was will they keep their reigns this past weekend when Star Trek graced the much awaited stage? Well as we all can see- Star Trek bet them out by over $40 million dollars as Wolverine brought in only $27 million in its 2nd weekend.

The budget for “Star Trek” was over $100 million dollars and Paramount is looking to make at least $200 million this summer grossing over $60 million in profit off the anticipated film $$$. Director J.J. Abrams out did his self on this intense film.

Paramount’s vice chairman Rob Moore anticipated Star Trek to gross over $200 million this summer and with the $76 million from its opening weekend, and $4 million in pre-screenings on Thursday its well on its way. So will the competition for number one continue to push between the two movies? We hope to find out over the course of this summer.
