Star Trek Into Darkness is already printing dollar bills and kicking ass.

Number crunchers and money nerds tell us that J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness made some $71 million through the three-day weekend and $84 million for the four and a half days that it has been open. Not bad for a rebooted franchise and basically a remixed and updated version of a movie from the early 80s. It's not doing as well as its first installment from 2009, which did $75 million in its first three-day weekend, but what sequel has ever outshined it's predecessor? (Ok, there are few, but not many) All of the secret and spoilers are out by now, but it's still well worth watching at least once - trust us.

Here's hoping all that cash doesn't go to Abrams' head, now that he's been given the keys to every beloved geek franchise. We want him humble and focused for when he gets to work on Star WarsVII...which should be soon, right J.J.?
