BOX OFFICE: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Finally Crosses $100 Million In North America

It took three days longer than expected, but Star Trek Into Darkness has now passed $100 million domestically. However, with a Memorial Day weekend which includes the release of Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III, it won't hold on to #1 for much longer...


Despite a 3D conversion, Star Trek Into Darkness took almost the exact same amount of time as 2009's Star Trek to surpass $100 million at the North American box office. It was originally thought that the sequel would surpass this number by last Sunday, especially as it opened early on Wednesday in IMAX screens. Regardless, the film took $5.33 million yesterday, which gives it a current domestic total of $103.77 million. This weekend will see both Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III hit screens across the country, although it's thought that the former will dominate with upwards of $85 million. As these films roll out internationally as well (Fast & Furious 6 had the second highest opening of 2013 in the UK last week), they will more than likely make a large dent in Star Trek Into Darkness' overseas takings, so a third instalment is from from guaranteed at this point despite a strong opening so far outside the US. Stay tuned for further updates.






When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
