  2. Terminator Salvation $53.8/$67.1
  3. Star Trek $29.4/$191.0
  4. Angels & Demons $27.7/$87.8

I’m not surprised that Night at the Museum did better. The first one was super popular with kids, and I enjoyed it myself. You’re going to get a lot more families going to that than to Terminator.

Star Trek” could have cut into “T4’s” action. “Star Trek” placed No. 3 for the weekend, declining only 49% to an estimated $29.4 million for a cume of $191 million in its third sesh.
