“Star Trek Beyond” Wins Box Office
There’s a new intergalactic force ruling the box office. Star Trek Beyond easily won its opening weekend. A sequel to 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, the new film debuted with $59.6 million. While that’s less than its predecessor, it is still a decent total. And plans are already in the works for a fourth movie in the rebooted film franchise.
The Secret Life Of Pets still drew a large enough audience in its third weekend to take the number two position with $29.3 million. Just edging out the Ghostbusters reboot and the animated sequel Ice Age: Collision Course for third place was the new horror film Lights Out. It earned $21.6 million compared to Ghostbusters with $21.5 million and fifth place finisher Ice Age: Collision Course, which earned $21 million.
Rounding out the Top 10 very distantly were Finding Dory in sixth with box office receipts of $7.2 million. The Legend Of Tarzan nabbed the number seven spot with $6.4 million. Ticket sales of $4.4 million put Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates in eighth, while the Indian film Kabali secured ninth with $4.1 million. And just making it into the Top 10 was Hillary’s America: The Secret History Of The Democratic Party with $3.7 million.
