While the USS Enterprise has yet to conquer foreign galaxies, it is starting to pick up speed overseas. Playing in seven foreign markets this weekend, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek Into Darkness" collected $31.7 million, according to an estimate from distributor Paramount Pictures. The studio said the sequel performed about 70% better than the original did when it debuted in those same countries four years ago. The movie did well in locations like Germany and Australia but fared best in the United Kingdom, where it grossed $13.3 million.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" outmuscled its competition at the box office this weekend, including Harry Potter, and had the most forceful opening of any big-budget superhero movie released this summer. The 3-D film, which stars Chris Evans as a puny military reject transformed into a superhero via a secret government program, grossed a solid $65.8 million in the U.S. and Canada, according to an estimate from distributor Paramount Pictures. That was over $10 million more than both "X-Men: First Class" and "Green Lantern" collected upon their debuts in June and just a tad above the $65.7-million opening weekend for "Thor" in May. "Captain America" was also able to take down Warner Bros.' mighty box office wizard.
