According to someone @ worldofkj forums there has been some advanced preview screenings for Star Trek in Hong Kong over the past week and apparently according to this poster who is obviously an expert on the Hong Kong box office these previews have been doing very well!
Star Trek 2 had very strong sneaks. This is a good sign for next weekend when it opens. WOM is at a ROBUST 83% (Veep, anyone?). Next Friday is also a holiday so if WOM continues in a similar fashion, Star Trek 2 could do some damage.
Great for Iron Man 3 but HUGE advanced screenings for Star Trek 2. With those previews, this will break 3m for sure. I'm going to revise my predictions for the upcoming weekend as well.
Star Trek 2 looks poised to break out with the holiday providing perfect cover. Who said anything about it not doing well in Asia?
