I'm still of the opinion that 500m is a shitload of money, and is to be applauded when attached to a Trek movie.
It is a good number, but it is seeming more likely what we can hope for a best case scenario now. I think it'll get enough for a sequel assuming the foreign BO takings improve dramatically which they appear they will do this time round.
Just from the numbers alone I'd say we'll get another movie. Even several hundred million dollars on a $150m investment is pretty good. That doesn't count the inevitable DVD/Blu-ray/Digital sales. So it is VERY likely we'll get another movie, and if it rakes in enough cash, we'll get it sooner than 4 more years.
