Re: What do you predict STID will make worldwide?

ST struggles in the international markets and this won't change IMO so...

Opening: $90 million
Domestic: $275 million
Foreign: $150 million
Total: $425 million

Re: What do you predict STID will make worldwide?

I'm hoping for between $500 million and $550 million worldwide, but have a feeling it will be less than that - around $450 million.

I know there are friends who are trekkies, who aren't interested in this at all. One particular friend likes pointing this out.

Fortunately I think Trekkies who don't like the reboot will be outnumbered by ppl new to Trek post-reboot by at least 100:1

True. Because for every one disgruntled Trekkie there are 20 who love nuTrek. And now they actually have something they can take their friends to and not be embarrassed about it.

Similar amount to ST11, maybe a bit more. Most of the extra money will probably come from the 3D screenings.

Ex-Trekkies, then.

Re: What do you predict STID will make worldwide?

I searched the thread for "flop" and found nothing.
So I'm saying STID is going to flop. But don't quote me on that...unless it flops.



I have no idea, never been good at these predictions.

For what it's worth, in the April 2013 issue of British movie magazine, TOTAL FILM, they include a multi-page Summer blockbuster preview. In it, they finish each preview with a predicted global box office figure. STID is forecast to take $810m. Personally, I think that's probably just a tadge optimistic. For comparative purposes, they have Iron Man 3 set for $710, Fast 6 at $680 and The Lone Ranger bringing up the rear with $580.
That's highly optimistic. I'd be happy if it made over $400 mill.

I'd be far happier with $500+, if it comes in closer to the 400 mark I would be a little disappointed. I'm really hoping Trek can broaden its international appeal.

I think the Lone Ranger will flop, Depp or no Depp.

Yep, that seems to be the general consensus pretty much across the board. There hasn't been much of what I'd call a "positive buzz" about it. I don't have the remotest interest in the movie. Sorry to meander off topic! I have my proverbial fingers crossed for STID.
