It'll do well here in the States, but I think the international market will dictate whether this is another The Dark Knight or if it ends up with numbers similar but slightly above Star Trek 2009.
So, basically, you're predicting ID will be the top-grossing Star Trek movie ever.

I mean, given that 2009 grossed nearly three times what the next-most-successful Star Trek movie (TMP) did.
Adjusted for inflation, TMP and 2009 are pretty close. But, international markets will dictate whether the new film is a mega-hit or not.

And while TWOK didn't do mega-business, it did make eight times its production budget, which no other Trek outing has come close too.
