was Star Trek popular in China?

The Chinese market has developed dramatically for Hollywood films since 2009, so there was room for a huge increase there. Japan was already a mature market for Hollywood films in 2009, so while there's room for significant improvement with a bigger marketing push, there's not as much room for growth as in China. STID may well double or triple the Japanese gross of Star Trek, but more than that will be tough.
