Fandango, a leading moviegoer destination, has reported that J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness” garnered a 96 out of 100 score on the company’s Fanticipation movie buzz indicator that measures fan sentiment around the weekend box office line-up.

The sci-fi thriller outshone “Iron Man 3″ and “The Great Gatsby,” which are still top-of-mind with moviegoers, scoring 85 and 83, respectively.
