A new sci-fi remake is on track for a blockbuster opening weekend after the first night's tally is in. According to Variety, Star Trek took in an estimated $7 million from Thursday night screenings.

Last year, Iron Man opened in a similar Thursday night frame and it took in just over $4 million on its opening night, en route to a $102.1 million opening weekend. Last weekend, X-Men Origins: Wolverine took in $5 million from midnight screenings and $85 million throughout the weekend.

It was said, however, that analysts aren't expecting Star Trek to surpass X-Men Origins: Wolverine's box office mark last weekend, but we'll have to wait until Sunday to find out for sure.
