"Trek" Beams Up Cash

In the second weekend of this summer's box office contest, Dave's first pick, "Star Trek," went where no release in the franchise had ever gone, grossing an estimated $76.5 million for the frame, including Thursday night previews, according to Box Office Mojo.

"Wolverine" dropped a ghastly -68% but still added an estimated $27 million to bring its cume to $129.6 million for me.

And my sixth pick, "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," punched $10.5 million worth of tickets -- off -32% -- for a two-weekend total of $30.2 million.

Next week will belong to Stu with the opening of "Angels & Demons," while Dave hopes for a few million bucks from the indie romantic comedy "Management," starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Zahn and Woody Harrelson.

Totals through May 10:

Robert (two films): $159.9 million
Dave (one film): $72.5 million
John: N/A
Stu: N/A
