Star Trek (2009) Surpasses TMP in Inflation-Adjusted Numbers!

Let me state at the outset that I know different sites use different methods for their calculations, and that there is also disagreement of the relevance of these numbers, but I find them interesting none-the-less.

According to BoxOffice.com, Star Trek (2009) now stands at a domestic gross of $239,444,000. That officially pushes it past the inflation-adjusted domestic gross for TMP which is $239,115,674 (also provided by BoxOffice.com). That means that the new film now is the most financially successful of all the Trek movies, both in terms of raw numbers and when adjusted for inflation!

Here is the complete breakdown, again with data from BoxOffice.com:

RAW NUMBERS:
Star Trek (2009) - $239,444,000
The Voyage Home - $109,713,132
First Contact - $92,027,888
The Motion Picture - $82,258,456
The Wrath of Khan - $78,737,310
The Search for Spock - $76,389,860
Generations - $75,671,125
The Undiscovered Country - $74,886,996
Insurrection - $70,187,658
The Final Frontier - $52,210,049
Nemesis - $43,126,129

ADJUSTED FOR INFLATION:
Star Trek (2009): - $239,444,000
The Motion Picture - $239,115,674
The Voyage Home - $212,328,919
The Wrath of Khan - $192,290,437
The Search for Spock - $163,237,856
First Contact - $149,493,266
Generations - $129,980,545
The Undiscovered Country - $127,720,425
Insurrection - $107,451,468
The Final Frontier - $93,951,918
Nemesis - $53,387,173

That means that the new film now is the most financially successful of all the Trek movies
1. ST:TMP worldwide gross $409.5 million
2. Star Trek worldwide gross $361.6 million

and using this http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl ST:TMP domestic gross is now $242.3 million.

I don't really trust the worldwide gross of TMP. Can you use US domestic inflation data for other countries?

Re: Star Trek (2009) Surpasses TMP in Inflation-Adjusted Numbers!

This is a confusing comparison to make at times, as shown by this article at TrekMovie that shows Star Trek (2009) passed ST:TMP in number of tickets at under $236million:
http://trekmovie.com/2009/06/20/star...hise-domestic/

So if inflation-adjusted figures are supposed to level the field in reference to increases in ticket prices only, wouldn't this be the apples-to-apples comparison?

In any case, whatever infaltion-adjusted figures you use, Star Trek will end up passing TMP in the end.

Close, but not quite!

Adjusted domestic number for TMP is $240,905,143 and you state that the current ST number is: $239,444,000. So, just a bit short. But, cool that it should be broken soon! Only $1.5 million to go!

I noticed this part of your text after my previous reply. While I'd say that both movies are tied in terms of domestic box revenue, it is not true that the current movie is the most financially successful, at least not based on the domestic numbers.

Inflation adjusted:

TMP: $241m box - $103m budget = $138m profit
STXI: $240m box - $150m budget = $90m profit

STXI needs to take in another $38m to tie TMP for profits.

That's just comparing the domestic first run box revenue and profits. If you through in other stuff that could change it. But, I'm comparing apples to apples here.

Indeed. And the movie came in under budget, some say as low as $130 million.

DVD's are a valid comparison, because lots of people don't go to the theater and wait for the home version, which wasn't possible in 1979. It does impact theater sales.

I think we should have box office and DVDs sales separate. American population has increased roughly 80 million since 1980s plus the fact new market has open after fall of Soviet Union. There is lot more people now than 1980s so more people equals more DVDs sales.
