We had a lot of fun with this before ST09 so I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread about it. We're less than two months away now. What do you predict the worldwide gross will be? Feel free to add any breakdowns you like.
Personally, I was dead wrong about the first movie, I projected it would make slightly more than the pattern of the favorite ST films, I believe it was somewhere around $160-180 million. Of course it went on to make $385 million and over $120 million+ on DVD/Bluray.
So here goes:
Opening: $85 million
Domestic: $325 million
Foreign: $180 million
Total: $505 million
I think this is a pretty good estimation. It will make more than Star Trek (2009) because of 3D.
