If you adjust all the older TNG & TOS movies for inflation, this is where STID stands domestically right now:

The Motion Picture...............260M
Star Trek 2009....................257M (140M Budget)
The Voyage Home................235M
The Wrath Of Khan..............216M
Into Darkness...................200M (190M Budget)
The Search For Spock..........180M
First Contact......................166M
Generations........................142M
The Undiscovered Country....141M
Insurrection.......................118M
The Final Frontier................104M
Nemesis.............................59M


Factoring in world wide numbers, and the film's budget, it doesn't look like STID is going to be any more profitable than ST2009 (maybe slightly less).

I think that's a bit of a disappointment for Paramount.

Hopefully they'll cut the budget for the next film which will force the writers to focus more on story and less on FX/action. Sometimes limitations are the best thing for creativity.
So, after four weeks STID is already only 9 million shy of ST's total worldwide lifetime gross.
It already made 50 million more in non US-markets after those four weeks than ST made in its entire run.

ST went on to make another 50 million after four weeks in distribution in the US.

Yeah, STID surely is a "disappointment".
