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

Iron Man 3 will pass $300 million domestic in a couple of days. I'd say four other summer films have a shot at reaching that level: Star Trek Into Darkness, Man of Steel, Monsters University, and Despicable Me 2.

A 50% increase in international gross is exactly on track to my prediction of about $180 million. It has an outside chance at $200 million unless the China opening is somehow shockingly good. Still predicting $325 million US.

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

China has the potential to add a huge chunk of money to the international box office, that market has exploded in recent years and I believe it likes to watch big epic 3D movies and I bet thats how Paramount marketed it there.

For example.

Battleship (2012) with Taylor Kitch and Rihanna did $50 million in China !

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

According to someone @ worldofkj forums there has been some advanced preview screenings for Star Trek in Hong Kong over the past week and apparently according to this poster who is obviously an expert on the Hong Kong box office these previews have been doing very well!


Star Trek 2 had very strong sneaks. This is a good sign for next weekend when it opens. WOM is at a ROBUST 83% (Veep, anyone?). Next Friday is also a holiday so if WOM continues in a similar fashion, Star Trek 2 could do some damage.

Great for Iron Man 3 but HUGE advanced screenings for Star Trek 2. With those previews, this will break 3m for sure. I'm going to revise my predictions for the upcoming weekend as well.

Star Trek 2 looks poised to break out with the holiday providing perfect cover. Who said anything about it not doing well in Asia?

The Japanese as well as Chinese like movie themes with sacrifice, honor, family.
I think STID can please them.

Same as has already been reported. Per the referenced Variety article:

In three days, Par expects the film to gross $80 million, though other box office observers say the number could be slightly higher.
The hundred million estimate is still counting Thursday and the sneaks tonight.

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

Some people seem to think about 115m over the 4 days is a fair estimate between the low and high?

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

I'm sure that if they do 115 million in four days they'll be thrilled.

However, if they're figuring 90 million Friday-Sunday - to be optimistic - then they need 25 million through Thursday to pull it off.

The buzz is so strong on this movie it may well shock them all and outperform all the domestic tracking.

From Box Office Guru on twitter:

#StarTrek #IntoDarkness opens to $2M from WED night IMAX + $1.25M from all midnight shows. Not huge. But midweek is slower.

ST09 did about $4 million for its thursday showing, so $3.5 mill is pretty good for Wed on 550-600 screens.

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

Clarified.

Paramount reports that Star Trek Into Darkness took in $2 million from early IMAX shows. $750K came from the Wednesday evening shows and the other $1.25 million came from midnight shows.

BoxOffice is currently forecasting $112 million in North America by the end of the weekend.

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

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Landing at the North American box office, summer tentpole Star Trek Into Darkness grossed $3.3 million in Wednesday night and midnight runs.

From Paramount and Skydance, J.J. Abrams' sequel made most of its money from IMAX runs. The Thursday night and midnight number matched the $3.3 million earned last Thursday evening by The Great Gatsby.

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

This is good news:

Star Trek Into Darkness opened in seven overseas markets this past weekend, earning $40 million thru Wednesday. According to Paramount, the combined figures from these territories are almost 70% greater than 2009's Star Trek from the same territories (UK, Australia, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, Austria and German speaking Switzerland). 33 new markets, lead by Russia, will open this weekend.

On the face of it, very poor but that's probably because it was pushed up a day under a week ago and it probably had less screens and buzz than many big blockbusters due to this.
