Um, no. I think it's pretty clear from the buzz that this film is going to be even bigger than the 2009 film - it's going to be "The Dark Knight" to "Batman Begins" basically.

Come back in a few months and we'll all celebrate how successful the movie is (well, we'll still have some complaining that it's not real Trek because it has a woman in her bra and panties visible etc, but the rest of us will just celebrate what a blockbuster, entertaining, well-scripted and acted movie this was).

It'll do well here in the States, but I think the international market will dictate whether this is another The Dark Knight or if it ends up with numbers similar but slightly above Star Trek 2009.

Nah, I don't agree at all. I think this movie has such goodwill from the first one along with the the very enticing trailers, that even if it was pummeled by bad word of mouth (which I think is extremely unlikely) that it would still rack in enough to top the last movie

I predict that your prediction will be as accurate as a Jeane Dixon one. IOW, not very likely.

I still see Avengers action figures being sold for full price right next to the new "Iron Man 3" toys. That Avengers movie must have been quite popular!

So, basically, you're predicting ID will be the top-grossing Star Trek movie ever.

I mean, given that 2009 grossed nearly three times what the next-most-successful Star Trek movie (TMP) did.

Adjusted for inflation, TMP and 2009 are pretty close. But, international markets will dictate whether the new film is a mega-hit or not.

And while TWOK didn't do mega-business, it did make eight times its production budget, which no other Trek outing has come close too.

...and the overseas market numbers are so far coming in stronger than 2009, too. By about 70%.

Re: star trek into darkness action figures?

My husband is away and says he will buy me something. I've asked for some STID stuff or TOS stuff. Is there anything out there?
He might have to get me diamonds instead
