Star Trek Movie
The latest "Star Trek" movie beamed to the top of the North American box office this weekend. The film grossed 76.5 million dollars on the weekend, including four million in Thursday preview screenings, easily surpassing the best opening weekend of any of the sci-fi franchise's 10 other "Trek" movies, box office, according to Exhibitor Relations. After a 19-year absence, Leonard Nimoy reprises his iconic role as Mr. Spock in director J.J. Abrams' new "Star Trek" prequel opposite Zachary Quinto, who stars as a younger version of the half-Vulcan, half-human science officer. "The character is much more relaxed about who he is and what his life should be about whereas (younger Spock) is just beginning to find himself," said Nimoy of the movie's mature Spock. "It works extremely well. The character I portray in this film is much more like who I am today, personally. I am as close as possible to the character as I could ever be."
