'Nemesis' has finally claimed a first place position in the box office, after it premiered in Germany last week.
Having played second fiddle to 'Maid in Manhattan' in the US, and 'The Two Towers' in the UK, Trek X scored a victory over the second 'Lord of the Rings' film when it ousted it from the the #1 spot, according to SF-Radio.
Variety reports that the film took approximately $3.2m on its release, showing in 800 German theatres. However, this is mixed news. Despite taking the #1 spot, 'Nemesis' took under half of what 'Insurrection' did with its German premiere. This means that 'Nemesis' is unlikely to join 'First Contact' and 'Insurrection' in the German top 100 grossing films of all time.
'Nemesis' took a further $266,000 in 59 Austrian theatres, according to the article.
Meanwhile, Box Office Mojo reports that 'Nemesis' slipped further in the US to position #24. The amount of theatres it is showing in is now 1,022, down from 2,423 at its height. With takings of $450,000 at the weekend, the total haul for the film in the US stands at $42,450,000. In the UK, no takings information is available yet, however, 'Nemesis' fell from #4 to #7 in its third week.
