Trekweb reports Into Darkness bombed at the Japanese box office. So much for Ben Cumberbatch's superstar status there.
$9 million US in three weeks is bombing there? That's just short of double Star Trek 2009's take for five weeks.

One of the negative reviews cited seems mostly to fault the movie for not being TMP. Another boils down to "Captain Kirk is an a$$hole" and "even the Japanese subtitles didnít tell the story correctly."
Ah, Trekweb's unbiased reporting strikes again.
