From last week on there are 5 countries that have/will release STID. Im guessing $2-3 million from 4 of those countries, and $10-12 million from Japan. We're looking at $465 million tops. Still a good total.

Benedict Cumberbatch last night concluded a massively successful Into Darkness PR campaign in Japan.

Tickets for the 3 screenings of the film in Tokyo sold out in 3 minutes. More than 100 media outlets, including 30 from television, covered his press conference.

At last night's event he was presented with a plaque containing pictures of all his magazine covers with the title, 'the cover face of 2013 in Japan.' There's also a photo of him standing in front of a giant poster of John Harrison... wearing a crown. (Uh, Harrison, not Cumberbatch!)

Japan's looking very promising! Here are some pictures:
Very impressive!

Cumberbatch has a nice following in Japan it would seem because I remember he was 'mobbed' at the airport in Dec 2012 when he went to Japan to show the 9 minutes.

He was also on Top Gear and both he and Jeremy Clarkson had only nice things to say about Star Trek... and that is the most watched program in the world
