Bedeviled by 'Trek' (weekend movie box-office)

The weekend’s top-five movies (estimated totals courtesy of Box Office Mojo; final figures will be available Monday afternoon):

1. Angels & Demons
$48 million
2. Star Trek
$43 million
3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
$14.8 million
4. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
$6.9 million
5. Obsessed
$4.6 million

The $48 million earned by the “Da Vinci Code” prequel paled in comparison to its predecessor’s $77 million opening. And a strong second weekend by the “Trek” re-imagining made it a much-closer race than analysts were expecting.

That film is also closing in on the “X-Men Origins” feature and looks certain to break the $200 million mark.

However, all three of these movies face stiff competition this weekend — from the new “Terminator” movie, which is being released on Thursday.
