Let's ask for the Japanese friends to help Star Trek Into Darkness to achieve grossing $500 million worldwide. Yes, we can!
That'd be great, but I doubt Japan has the population to make it so! I'm guessing $460m, maybe $470, as a finish. If it scrapes the $470, that'd be a pretty damn decent take actually. Certainly, it'd be quite a stretch to describe the film as any kind of genuine "disappointment" IMHO.
Yea, they'll definitely put it over $450M, if it's not already there, by the time it opens, but, they only brought in about $5.8M for ST'09, so, it's very unlikely they'll bring in $54M+ (US take is now down to less to than $500,000 per day, and will continue getting smaller, and leaving theaters, so, Japan is about all the big jump left)
