Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

hmmm i'd think they'd hope for 300m domestic at least considering the last one made 250m.

I would think that $300 mil domestic is realistic.

ComicBookMovie is notoriously sloppy with it's reporting - and that's putting it politely.

What The Wrap is actually reporting is essentially the same thing Out Of My Vulcan Mind already reported - over 100 million for the extended opening including Thursday.

You really are 'Admiral Buzzkill' aren't you? Extended opening or not, $100m sounds good, if it ends up being true! I think the movie will make $500m worldwide.

Hey, double the business! Pray for legs! My 250 estimate was based on the first and second long weekends, by the way... I am anticipating 300+ domestic.

MEXICO: 'Star Trek: Into Darkness" Disappoints in Debut

Star Trek: Into Darkness performed below expectations in Mexico last weekend, grossing $2.6 million for the second spot in the top ten. Iron Man 3 retained the number one position with a $3.5 million weekend and a $42.3 million cume. Unsurprisingly, releasing the Star Trek sequel on Mother's Day weekend at the heels of Iron Man 3 was probably not the best plan from Paramount's strategic overseas roll-out.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Star Trek opened to $1 million in Mexico and made $3.4 million in its entire run there. So STiD opening to $2.6 million is a 160% increase. Maybe they were expecting an even bigger increase - they reportedly opened the film on significantly more screens in Mexico compared to ST - but it's still a big jump.

It's like that peculiar news item in which expected corporate profits were not reached--2% instead of 5%, so FAIL!

STiD has a shot at $300 million domestic, but bear in mind how difficult it is to achieve that level. Over the last five years only two or three summer movies per year have made over $300 million domestic (three in 2008, two in 2009, three in 2010, two in 2011 and two in 2012).

Even though this is true, I think Paramount likely has unrealistic expectations for this film.

I don't think so. If STiD makes, say, $275 million domestic I think they'll be happy with that as long as there's improvement in the foreign numbers. Star Trek performed very well domestically. It's the traditional Trek weakness overseas that they're hoping to overcome. If the film does $500 million worldwide that'll likely meet their expectations, even if it doesn't quite get to $300 million domestic.

I'm not sure why the Mexico number is bad. I mean the kind of Sci-Fi that Trek offers isn't exactly a big genre in Mexico.

Doing almost as much in the opening as the last film did in its entire run has to be good news.

They're at least as concerned with the actual take at the end as they are with measuring any relative improvement.

MovieTickets.com reports that nearly 450 screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness have sold out with 60% of yesterday's daily sales coming from advance tickets purchased by moviegoers to see the sequel.
