It was the third-highest opening for a Marvel franchise launch, behind "Spider-Man," which made $115 million in 2002, and "Iron Man," which made $98.6 million in 2008.

J.J. Abrams says that since work on the sci-fi film Super-8 is winding down he can finally focus on the Star Trek sequel.
"The truth is that my focus has been so much on finishing 'Super 8' that it's been something I'm looking forward to getting to, but with an incredibly compressed post schedule, there hasn't been a whole lot of time for me to be working with the writers. Now that 'Super 8' is drawing to a close in terms of this post schedule, I'm looking forward to jumping in and hopefully getting that ready as soon as possible."

Rumors are swirling that Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in the live action adaptation of Akira. Whoa. This is a big departure from the film which starred a teenager. - Mania
