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

BoxOffice.com is reporting $261,552,337 worldwide gross as of 28th.

The film opened in China with 25m CNY on its opening day (that's $4.04 million. The total Chinese box office for the same day was 11 million, so STID took a sizeable percentage.) The Chinese are predicting it will take in $25m in the first week.

For more information on the Chinese box office, see: http://yule.sohu.com/20130529/n377364553.shtml

They might, because there will be a Star Wars movie in the summer of 2016. It's been widely reported that there will be one each year starting 2015.

I'm still sticking with a $18-20 Million Sat-Su,. mainly because there are no "must-see" releases and Epic and TH3 are not much competition, and STID's word of mouth is winning the day.

Star Trek made $17 million on the Sat-Sun of its third weekend, and that was with the inflated business of Memorial Day weekend. $18-20 million for Sat-Sun for STiD on a regular weekend would be a Herculean task. I think it'll make $18-21 million for the full Friday-to-Sunday weekend.

I don't think a trend upwards is impossible, so far After Earth is 17% fresh. The scifi fans will go see STID.

It hasn't been updated much, but the actual total right now would be around $275 million.

Thanks for that link--it's a good read, aside from all those chicken scratches!

But good news, because that'll be 4 times the 2009 take, I think.

All right then, the curious general public moviegoer after realizing Hangover and After Earth are turds, and the Trek film is fresh.

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

STiD will continue to draw good business, but $21 million for this weekend, maybe $22 million at a push, is the upper range of what it'll make.

"After Earth" has been getting absolutely terrible reviews. It might open okay, but it's going to collapse hard after the first weekend.

I think will limp to 250m with a final total of 450m WW, a disappointment but better than what we thought after the bad first weekend.

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

Well as a ScFi fan and a long time trek fan, I still haven't seen it. Too much other stuff at the end of the kids school year. We'll try to see it this weekend.

I keep hearing good word of mouth from non-trek folks in person and facebook. I think this weekend end might bring a bump
