Trekweb reports Into Darkness bombed at the Japanese box office. So much for Ben Cumberbatch's superstar status there.
I bet Abrams is really regretting that he didn't take my advice and have the Cloverfield monster wreck San Francisco instead of the Vengeance in the Japanese release right about now.

Seriously though, as said, opening over three months later? I bet most die hard Trekkies in Japan found alternate means of viewing it by then. Of course, that can't account for its failure completely since non-fans obviously weren't interested, but it couldn't have helped, either.
It'll probalby beat ST09's Japanese gross by 100%. Not too shabby
