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.
Get some perspective, man.

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

Then I beat you last time around (saw ST09 seven, yes, seven times at the theater).

This one I've seen three times but the fourth is coming up this weekend with another non-Trekkie friend and her husband who want to "drag" me to it

My friend Michelle and I contributed two $13 tickets opening night ... though actually paid less than that through a Fandango gift card deal

I'm hoping to go again this weekend, after I get over this cold.

OK. So we are at $102,100,000 overseas at the moment.

If I add all of Star Trek 2009 totals from the countries STID is yet to open in + $35m from CHINA (Might not get that much, but lets be optimistic!)
$102m is the total so far.
$30m to come from those countries that have already opened (guess, might be way off)
$35m from CHINA (might happen now!)
$35m from countries yet to open, at ST09 levels.

$202m total
I would agree that US$30m more from the countries it has already opened in is low.

i.e. Box Office Mojo figure for the UK = US$12.95m

UK Box office upto the 26th May = GB£19.42m = US$29.1m Which means the UK alone will have added something like US$17m

http://www.bfi.org.uk/education-rese...office-figures
Box office mojo is updating the OS total figure but has not updated the individual figures. The $29.1m from UK is part of the $102m figure.

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

OK my weekend predict is going to be:

Thursday: $2.83m +3.5%
Friday: $5.66m +100%
Sat: $8.2m +45%
Sun: $5.33 -35%

Total Weekend: $19.2m
Total by end of Weekend: $184.2m
Total of ST09 at same point: $184.5m

I don't think I am being too optimistic here? I am quite surprised it has turned out like that. It will be a 50% drop from Memorial Day weekend 3-day.

No. That's epic, just like STAR TREK.

Star Trek, as a movie franchise, had its greatest success in the 1980s. I think that people expected the reboot would have the phenomenal success of other rebooted properties, but I think this brief survey shows that it hasn't happened. I think the new film may get one .

Here is a new article on the box office:
http://io9.com/whats-the-future-of-s...ness-510291083

After quoting another article which said that only 25% of people under 25 saw this movie, I read this in the above article:
That makes it a less valuable property to the studios, which really want to capture a young audience. And it also means the series has less of a future, as the people who really want a new Trek eventually die off.
That is a rather bleak assessment about the health and future of this franchise.

They really need an animated series at this point to begin building a new fan base.
