Star Trek Sequel Bows To Bad Reviews But Strong Box Office

Star Trek CastDespite a weak story, bad acting, and horrible reviews, Star Trek Intro Darkness topped the box office. The J.J. Abrams remake of the Star Trek franchise failed to hit the predicted $100 million opening, but did more than enough business to top Iron Man 3 in its third week of release. Iron Man 3 brought in $55 million in its third weekend of release, compared to Star Trek’s 70 million for its debut weekend.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, May 19, are as follows:
