Since it opened Weds night, the film has grossed that amount, which is about equal to what the previous Star Trek reboot made, during its first weekend in 2009, adjusted for today dollars. There were originally predictions of a $100 million weekend, but it fell short. Still $84 million is definitely nothing to sneeze at.

Iron Man 3 has already passed the $1 billion mark worldwide which explains why Robert Downey is reportedly asking for the moon from Marvel Productions and Disney, to reprise the role again.

Meanwhile 42 keeps chugging along, still in the top ten, approaching $90 million. The film could just edge out $95 million by the time it drops out of the top ten.
