Gotcha, but that's because Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith had especially good weekday numbers, so there was less room for a big Friday increase. Attack of the Clones had a more regular Thursday-to-Friday increase of 98.7% going into its second weekend.

Also the Star Wars films opened on Wednesday so much of the initial demand is burned off before the weekend, hence the lower Thursday-Friday increase.

That would be more of a factor for their opening weekends than their second weekends.

Edit to add: From BoxOffice.com on Twitter:

Early #s: FAST & FURIOUS 6 $37M Fri/$100M+ 4-day; EPIC $12M Fri/$52M 4 day; HANGOVER 3 $12M Fri/$42M 4-day
About as expected for F&F 6. Epic looks to overperform while Hangover III underperforms.

Hopefully Star Trek ends up nicely in 3rd place on about $48m. Wont be long now till we get the numbers

EDIT: Unless its only the openers that get the early numbers in which case its a long wait

Absolutely.

There's already apparently talk about who's directing the next one. Joe Cornish is one of several folks mentioned.

One would guess that they'll keep the budget to 150 million or less.

I am not certain, but I think Star Trek Into Darkness needs to make $580m worldwide to make back its production and marketing budget. Hopefully it makes it into profit after the DVD, Blu-Ray and TV sales are done.

The studio doesn't get all of the box office, so making a production budget back takes a lot more than the box office gross simply equally the budget.

I don't think children care about the financial workings of the movie industry. Adults might be interested, though.

Anyway, studios don't necessarily look to make back total costs - production, marketing and distribution - from theatrical box office alone. DVD, Blu-ray and TV revenue are a big part of the business model, although DVD and Blu-ray are weakening.

For a film of STiD's budget level $500-600 million worldwide would make the studio very happy, the mid 400s would make them reasonably happy, while the low 400s would be disappointing, but enough for a sequel at a reduced budget.

I really hope any budgetary constraints don't impact on the scale of the next movie - in the sense of it's overall cinematic scope and grandeur. I know many would prefer a more "intimate" piece, but I'm not certain that's the way to secure Trek's long term future.

They can do quite a lot with 150 million dollars, still.

i watched the Total Recall remake the other day, it was made for $125m and the visual effects and action set pieces were very good! I don't think it will make much difference.
