However once you take away the 3d prices of STiD and adjust trek 09 by inflation.

Yes. Once you change the numbers, it doesn't look as good.
Comparing success by the numbers of tickets sold (which is essentially what you do when you adjust for ticket price inflation) is fair.
No it's not. We have no idea of the financing or merchandising or tax rebates that go into the numbers of either film. For all we know, Into Darkness could be more financially successful than the original film even with less tickets sold and a higher budget.

The only people who know how financially successful or unsuccessful Into Darkness is, with certainty, are the folks at Paramount and Bad Robot.
