Re: One-year countdown thread!

I wonder if it will do as well as the the first. For the general population, 4 years may be too long a stretch to maintain the interest.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Well as I said in the other thread I hope I do not die before this.

ONE YEAR TO GO.

I guess it seemed to be taking soooo long before we heard anything that this seems just around the corner now

Yay for the countdown thread! And hopefully Australia will get it first like the last one, heh heh..

I thought it was being released on the 17th? Oh, well, that knocked 4 days off the wait for me

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Or we could call it the 'Two Years Late' thread since it was suppose to originally come out in 2011.

They'll have forgotten that they had a good time at the first one?

"Alien" (1979), "Aliens" (1986).

this surprises me ....I know movies cost more now to make and with ticket prices going up it would take in more but still.
Surprised that the domestic was twice that of the foreign, what with the huge following of trek world wide especially in the uk, germany and elsewhere

That part's pretty consistent with previous Trek films, though:

*** .. Domestic ................+ Foreign ...................= Total
TUC . $74,888,996 (77.3%) . $22,000,000 (22.7%). $96,888,996
GEN . $75,671,125 (64.1%) . $42,400,000 (35.9%) $118,071,125
FC ... $70,187,658 (62.3%) . $42,400,000 (37.7%) $112,587,658
INS .. $43,254,409 (64.3%) . $24,058,417 (35.7%).. $67,312,826
ST .. $257,730,019 (66.8%) $127,950,427 (33.2%) $385,680,446


Edit:

Numbers taken from Box Office Mojo - no international figures available for movies prior to TUC

"Alien" (1979), "Aliens" (1986).
I don't think that the 4 year wait will hurt it much. I live in "No Fun City" and since the 2009 movie was released we have seen 2 Star Trek conventions and our first Fan Expo (with 3 TNG actors who were well received). This is no longer a "dead" franchise. It is no longer viewed as a memory from the past, people who talk about use the present tense again.

As Therin indicated, those who liked the movie the first time will remember they had fun, and those who didn't see the '09 film may be curious enough to venture to the cinema to see what the fuss is about.

I'm really looking forward to it!

I would never have guessed that was following a pattern if honest.

It's even better than that. :facepalm: I had Nemesis' numbers in there, but attributed to Insurrection, and Insurrection's numbers attributed to First Contact. That'll teach me to try multitasking.

I think I've got it repaired now:
