I went again today to a huge IMAX and the theater was about 80-85% full. People are still going to see it.

If ID keeps pace with 09 then I expect to be seeing it in IMAX in late August.

Despite the hardcore naysayers, the theater I saw it for the third time today was really really packed. The movie is going to do well.
So damn proud.

Yep, but they can't count on us through too many more sequels - they'll have to start factoring the mortality rate into their opening weekend box office projections.
A little "Khan" blood with McCoy serum may help extend the aging fan base a bit...

I have to turn in my trekkie card. The movie has been out for almost 2 weeks and I haven't seen it yet. I guess you can blame part of the below expectation boxoffice on me. I do plan to see it soon.

The last time I didn't see a trek movie on the first weekend was when TMP was released, but I was more of a casual fan back then.

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

I caught this again earlier today, and it was a full theater. I even went at 10AM to beat the crowds, but nope, it was sold out. I had to wait for the 11AM show. It was a packed house.

A few in the audience even gasped at the "big reveal"

I'm relieved it's done so well in the second week. The competition looked pretty big, but luckily Hangover 3 was a flop (relatively to 2).

Anyone worrying about a sequel in 2016, don't. Paramount will have another movie ready for the big anniversary, just as they did in 1991. Will the budget be 190+? Probably not. This is always been a franchise which had the ability to do more with less.

Don't forget, Star Trek (2009) was made with a 150 million dollar budget, and that film looked pretty good to me too...

One film did reach a general audience. That film was Star Trek IV.
Box office success says that ST:TMP, ST IV, "First Contact", "Star Trek" (2009) and "Star Trek Into Darkness" all reached a "general audience".

Do you think STID is to Batman Begins (and not Star Trek 2009) compared to the audience in the world? I think STID may represents a watershed for a strong revival of the franchise. For that reason choosing a director known and good is the first step for this 3rd movie has much greater success.

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

I've seen it 5 times, the last time there was only one other person in the theater. The most times so far was about 15, and that was a weekend evening viewing.

Guess I'll just have to go a gazilion more times to save Star Trek..

And The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock (both in the top 10 for the year domestically in their respective years of release).
