Star Trek Into Darkness may have tried to boldly go where no blockbuster had gone before, but unfortunately, it appears to have fallen a few million dollars short of that!

Although the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel was expected to rack in between $90-$100 million during its opening box office weekend, the numbers are now in….and apparently, audiences were not as thrilled to see Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto battle it out with Benedict Cumberbatch, as it only secured about $70.6 million!

But don't fret, Trekkies!

The flick STILL beat out all of the competition for the weekend's number one spot domestically, and in the process crushed both Iron Man 3, which came in second with $35.2 million, and The Great Gatsby, which made a cool $23.4 and rounded out the top three!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the weekend's box office top tenAFTER THE JUMP!!!

1. Star Trek Into Darkness, $70.6 million

2. Iron Man 3, $35.2 million

3. The Great Gatsby, $23.4 million

4. Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, $3.1 million

5. The Croods, $2.8 million

6. 42, $2.7 million

7. Oblivion, $2.2 million

    I am surprised that it did not do better at the box office on the opening weekend. I assumed that it would have done over $100 million at the box office. After the last one did well I assumed that it would have built a larger audience due to a few years of video and streaming of the 2009 movie. This new one was a fun and enjoyable movie. Maybe not as good as the 2009 movie but pretty good.

    I'm kinda glad this film underperformed. JJ Abrams has been getting too much praise for pretty much imitating Wrath of Kahn. I haven't seen the film, but I heard it is badly written, predictable, and if this article's moving phtograph is any indication, another sexist blockbuster victimizing women.

    Re: mack

    Like that'll effect the total gross you dumb ass. There was confusion on opening day, which was altered at the last second. And by the way, stop acting like you watched the fucking film when you clearly didn't. It was NOTHING like Wrath of Khan and had no sexist concepts. It'll generate more sequels, like it or not, douche bag

    I don't understand all the pissiness over this movie. I saw the movie over the weekend and liked it just fine. It was everything an action movie should be with enough little Trek touches to make me nostagic. Was it perfect? Nope. Was it good? Definitely.
