Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening

Variety is describing STID now as tracking "north of 90 million" for the three day weekend alone.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening

I don't usually follow the box-office tracking stuff. How credible are they and how often are their predictions close to reality?

They'd make less money with this kind of film in November or December. That's why they release them during the blockbuster season.
Lots of blockbusters in Nov and Dec. Most notable one being Avatar.

Though still less blockbusters than in Summer and therefore more space for each movie.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening

Yeah, the Star Wars fans will come along, to see how their new 'master' JJ fares at sci fi! SW fans helping out a Star Trek movie! hehe. And hopefully the Cumberbatch fangirls will rock up in their droves.

I saw STID today, and will definitely go again at least once or twice before it leaves theatres.

I love Trek and Wars, but in a "choose or die" situation I'd take Trek in a heartbeat. Is it just me, or is there almost something "cooler" about being the hardcore fan of the less popular and, well, more "culty" franchise? I've often felt that way.
I'm with you. I'm a fan of both, but Trek more so. I like supporting the underdog!

Boosting overseas sales is why Cumberbatch was brought in, methinks. Especially Japan.

Just a thought.
And Britain. He is well loved over there. I have some British friends who are going to see the movie just to see him.

Looks like the Great Gatsby will not be all that big a deal judging by the reviews.

That's not much competition. A warmed over 6th entry in the venerable F&F series that no one watches anymore, and a lame comedy sequel to a lame sequel? ST09 had more competition.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening

The signs for worldwide totals seem to be trending well so with that + ST looking like a $90 million North America opening I think $450-500 million for a minimum grand total is looking likely.

Hmm, I don't think that's quite right. Fast 5 hauled a worldwide box office of $626m, that's not too shabby! I certainly wouldn't dismiss the next entry casually!

Fast Five did $626 million in business, I wouldn't under estimate it...

EDIT: LOKAI of CHERON beat me to it.

Fast Five did $626 million worldwide! Did you know ?

Only little tidbit I have heard is from Germany where it is apparently getting 25% more admissions than ST09 which translates to 75% more $$$ so far but very early days!

Also heard (forums.boxoffice.com) that the presales in Hong Kong are low and Trek is not expected to do well in Asia..

I won't settle for anything less than $1 trillion.

Boxoffice.com tracks tweets about movies.

Yesterday the positive:negative ratio on STID was 9:1. Today it's 24:1.
