But it will kick ass (by a huge margin) over STO9 overseas BO performance; and probably go on to be the highest grossing (overall) Star Trek film to date.
But why state all the facts when they don't fit your agenda?
Bottom line: STID is a BIG success for Paramount and the Star Trek franchise; and we'll get a third film with these actors, and characterizations.
I don't have an agenda against STID, I want it to succeed everywhere. When I single out 'domestic' I am referring to North America only. I am aware that trek is doing much better overseas but my post was about the Friday box office in NA and it being much lower than ST09 both on the day and as a whole.
The North American gross of Into Darkness is disappointing, but the rest of the world is a success. I think most people would agree with that statement?
