    'Star Trek' Boldly Goes To $31M At Box Office

    "Star Trek" has gone to warp speed at the box office with $31 million in domestic ticket sales after just over a day in theaters.

    Distributor Paramount said "Star Trek" took in $24 million Friday, plus $7 million during preview screenings Thursday night.

    Paramount estimates that by the end of the weekend the movie will be near or over $70 million in ticket sales.

    That puts the movie light years ahead of the previous 10 "Trek" movies.

    The best opening weekend ever for the franchise was $30.7 million for 1996's "Star Trek: First Contact." According to inflation-adjusted numbers compiled by Hollywood.com, that translates to $51.2 million in today's dollars.
