Default Star Trek opening weekend receipts

BetEd has Star Trek over/under at $40M. I maxed it out on the over. (Can only bet $100, unfortunately)

Wolverine did over 80M this past weekend, I think.

Star Trek currently has 100% positive reviews on rottentomatoes (22/22)

Seems like good value to me.

Good value? Understatement of the year maybe.

That would be an account all-in imo. Seems like that should be -300 or maybe as high as -400 to me. Even in this economy.

Great find - Ill hit it for the $100 max. maybe 5dimes or BetJam have it also.

Yeah.. "good value" was under-selling it a bit. But I don't want someone coming after me if it loses somehow.

I would be shocked if it didn't go way over $40M though. Wish I could have put more on it. Only other place I saw it was on Intrade, and someone was already bidding 95%!

Isnt there a site to monit box office receipts? I remember someone posting it on the Intrade site a while back - it was a few hours delayed or something. Not that Im that worried about my $100. But maybe for future movie plays.

If anyone finds it - post it up in a new Thread and we will make it a "Sticky Thread"
