How will Star Trek compare to Wolverine's $87,000,000?
 
That's X-Men Origins: Wolverine's gross at the box office on its opening weekend according to Box Office Mojo.

How will Star Trek stack up? Thoughts/projections/conjecture...?

How many showings per day per theater? Showing a movie 4 times a day vs 5 makes a difference.

The weekend isn't even over yet. Is this a projected number or the numbers as they stand right now before the weekend concludes?

I think it defiantly has the potential to and will. Just about everyone I've talked to has been more interested in seeing the new Trek

They get finalised on a Monday - but they never vary significantly. It might get rounded down or up slightly, but will be in that ballpark.

It's no record breaker of a debut, but it's solid enough for a $150 million picture.

@Samuel: Good question...that's not part of the statistics, although, Star Trek does have an extra day in its opening weekend, too. (Thursday, May 7)

@MrQ1701: The $87,000,000 total includes a projection for Sunday. They're projections are normally really close and the actuals will be updated Monday afternoon (usually).

Is Trek going to open on fewer screens than X-Men?
