Therin of Andor, what exactly is 'DS8' .
Ah, it was released internationally - and hasn't reached USA yet.

Re: International box office thread

I went opening day here in Melbourne, Australia; during a daytime screening, and there weren't many people in attendance. I am planning to go again maybe once or twice before it leaves theatres. I'll try a weekend session, and I bet there'll be more people at one of those.

300 million overseas does sound very optimistic. I'd love it if it came true, but I suspect 200 million international gross is a realistic figure for us to anticipate.

Re: International box office thread

Well Star Trek (2009) only did ~US$128m at the Non US & Canda box office. Of which the biggest takings were

UK US$35.4m
Germany US$12.8m
Australia US$12.7m

Part of the reason for it being released in some markets before the US is to try and increase that those takings. So a figure of US$200m is a more realastic figure for it's potential takings. Though I'm sure Paramount would be over the moon with US$300m

Re: International box office thread

New article about "Into Darkness" success in Australia:
http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news...-1226641496840

"The film has displaced last week's box office leader, 'Iron Man 3', although the superhero sequel has still taken in a healthy rake of more than $3 million to be a clear No. 2."

Into the black?

I think "word of mouth marketing" is very important to increase interest in the film.
Maybe that's why Paramount has premieres on different days

I think the goal should be $400m worldwide now. I have been revising my guess downward for weeks because it is becoming increasingly clear IMO that this movie will not increase a great deal from the last one, if at all.

If we get an extra $80m from overseas, I think we are going to lose $30-50m from NA because of increased competition.

I know it sounds a bit negative but I would rather lower my expectations and be pleasantly surprised rather than disappointed
Stop it Flakey, you're depressing me

The latest tracking is reportedly for STiD to open domestically to $88 million for the three-day weekend and $112 million in its first four days.

You'll probably want to post that in the other thread.

Edit:

Never mind - as long as I was here anyway, I just copy/pasted it.

I think should beat $12.2 million that ST09 did back in 2009. Saw it twice to far. When I saw it on opening day, would have been less than a quarter full, but it was the first session of the day. And then on the weekend, when I was at the cinemas in Liverpool (a suburb of Sydney), saw it there again. As I was there all day, saw many people come through. Saw a free session, but at 7.30pm it was around 2/3 full.
