Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
OK. So we are at $102,100,000 overseas at the moment.
If I add all of Star Trek 2009 totals from the countries STID is yet to open in + $35m from CHINA (Might not get that much, but lets be optimistic!)
$102m is the total so far.
$30m to come from those countries that have already opened (guess, might be way off)
$35m from CHINA (might happen now!)
$35m from countries yet to open, at ST09 levels.
I would agree that US$30m more from the countries it has already opened in is low.
i.e. Box Office Mojo figure for the UK = US$12.95m
UK Box office upto the 26th May = GB£19.42m = US$29.1m Which means the UK alone will have added something like US$17m
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
