Star Trek Beyond wins weekend box office

By Kenny Howell

To no one's surprise, Star Trek Beyond won the weekend box office, but maybe not as much as it could have been. The third in the rebooted series earned $59.6 million, which is pretty good, but the film came in with a budget of $185 million.

The Secret Life of Pets continued to pile up on its total with another $29.3 million, to push it past $250 million with $260.7 million in just three weeks.

Ghostbusters, which had a slightly disappointing opening week, performed fairly well in week two, nabbing the third spot with $21.6 million.

Rounding out the top five are two drastically different new films, the horror film Lights Out and the kids movie, and 57th sequel to Ice Age, Ice Age: Collision Course. Lights Out matched Ghostbusters' $21.6 million, but is already a huge success. The scary flick quadrupled its budget in the first week, which isn't too surprising as it just cost $5 million to make and horror always sell well. Ice Age: Collision Course got $21 million.
