I am reading the Hollywood Reporter. According to that site, ST: ID is lagging $10 million behind ST '09 in the domestic market.
The film is doing better overseas than the last film. It had a phenomenal opening in China and showed strong in South Korea. The film is expected to do well in Brazil, France, Italy, Japan, and Spain.
The film has made nearly $328 million worldwide.
Can this film make $200 million or more in the overseas market? I don't know. I know that Europe is having an unemployment crisis, with three of the countries named above reporting an increased number of jobless. Some of these jobless belong to the coveted youth group that Paramount is targeting. Of the countries named above, Japan will be the last country to see the movie, with it opening on August 23. If the film does well in Japan, then the film will have started and ended strong.
