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

It'll make enough to get a sequel, albeit perhaps one with a reduced budget. It's still an open question to what extent Paramount will be happy or at least somewhat disappointed with the final gross.

It means a lot. Relax.

There will be another Bad Robot Star Trek movie in 2016.

Paramount isn't releasing any Thursday actuals today for some reason. The Thursday estimate is $5,054,000. We'll only get the actual following the long weekend.

...awkward timing. I huzzah'd the film making back its budget already, not... Paramount's quietness.

Even if they aren't releasing actuals, we will still keep getting estimates over the next few days from the usual sources.

And people can make wild comparisons to unrelated films from years ago as if they knew more than just to repost numbers they read on other websites.

As for Superman Returns: a good movie that for whatever reason didn't really click with the audiences, and we all know it killed the Superman film-franchise.
Oh, wait.

Of course. But it ratchets up anxiety over a needless concern.

It was just an illustration that all of the box office doesn't go to the studio. No more than that.

Oh, wait.
It certainly derailed the Superman franchise for a while, with a reboot being made some years later rather than a direct sequel. As I've said any number of times, though, I expect Trek to get another direct sequel in 2016.

I'm not so concerned about a third film, I'm sure we'll get another Bad Robot production. A 4th on the other hand...

Yet it made as much as Star Trek 2009. One was a considered a success the other a flop. So can you really gather anything substantial from out-of-context numbers?

Well, a fourth doesn't depend much at all on what happens this summer.

I kind of hope they change direction every decade or so from here on out (and didn't Abrams sign up around 2006/2007), which is not to say that the Bad Robot folks should step away - just let newer writers/directors/designers in on the Franchise to keep it fresh. A fourth movie's a good time to do that.

Agreed.

One was a succes and the other underperformed (I wouldn't say outright flopped) to a degree that it didn't get a sequel because of their respective budget levels. Both are part of the broad rule of thumb of the kind of return on a production budget that studios are happy with. If Superman Returns had a budget of $150 million it would have got a sequel.
