Foreign box office is the major weak spot of the last JJ Abrams movie, so they're doing an all-out push to fix that for this film. I wouldn't be surprised if the foreign gate is much higher than the domestic for this outing.
I might be surprised at it being much
higher, given the past performance of Trek films overseas, but I think Paramount wouldn't be terribly unhappy if the international box office receipts came close to equaling to the domestic take. That would make for pretty respectable numbers.
