The Cumberbitches are failing us. IT'S ALL THEIR FAULT THEY KILLED STAR TREK.

The one thing that worries me now is that the budget for Trek XIII will be reduced when STID fails to be a huge success...

Still the overseas numbers to come in yet, that might save us.

I think even if the budget goes down it just means the writers and directors need to step up their game. We have had our fair share of Star Trek episodes that had no budget yet were a success. The budget will still be big. Abrams shot outdoors with green screen, perhaps they will have to stay indoors this time and have one or two less FX shots. Maybe shooting in the UK or Australia will reduce the budget. etc.

Abrams used IMAX cameras, maybe that is expensive, they can stick to 35mm or even digital cameras next time. Maybe that saves $$$

We still lack a firm grip on domestics too.

Popped in hsx.com forums and the rollercoaster ride continues:

Going to be bump, if not a significant bump for TREK2 on Saturday

I'm looking at numbers right now and multiple theaters in my chain are going to be very strong for Saturday, much stronger than Friday from what it looks like right now.

Matinees are filling up or full already across the board and Evening shows are mostly sold out at this point. I think it is going to make it to $100 million for the 4 day.

OK, this is just getting too bizarre now! As others have suggested, let's wait until at least Sunday night before calling it.

The actual Friday numbers will be coming out in about 6 hours. Not much longer to wait.

LOL, and here I thought after the pre-movie hype and actually, finally seeing it, the fun would be over.

Go Star Trek!!

One can really depend on you guys to be calm, reassuring and reasonable during a crisis.

This tracking business, which I admittedly know nothing about , looks like BS. Up and down, up and down with each new post and report.

Maybe it was a mistake putting the movie so close to Iron Man 3 and Fast and Furious. I just hope that the world-wide take is enough to warrant a third movie in 2016! Now I'm feeling a bit depressed!

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

Frankly I think this falls squarely on the shoulders of Paramount. They should have gone with a mid/late April release to give the film a full two weeks of box office breathing room. May is simply too crowded this year with Iron Man III, Gatsby (unexpectedly), Hangover III, Fast and Furious 6 (as much as I hate to say it)

It doesn't really matter who is at fault at this point, because Star Trek may be dead as a franchise.
