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

True! Some countries do shrink! Even the total world population has shrunk at times in history. My bad.

Anyway, my main point there is that population changes, as does the nominal value of currency.

Big win for Trek in S. Korea

Y'all should be pleased to know that Into Darkness trounced Will Smith's After Earth in South Korea. They opened head-to-head this weekend.

http://www.boxoffice.com/latest-news...seas-territory

STID opened in first place with $3.76 million on the weekend; AE had a mere $2.1 million in third.

Heck, STID even beat the second weekend of F&F 6 over there!

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

STiD's Monday take: $1,632,233 for $183,169,614. Star Trek's comparable Monday was Memorial Day, so of course there's a big imbalance there.

Looks like it'll top out at around 210-215, what with WWZ and Supes on the way.

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

Are they basing their 100 million Man of Steel prediction based solely on the Batman movies doing well and the Marvel films doing well?

The last Supes movie opened with 76 million and tanked sharply after people realized it was a terrible movie.

I mean maybe that is enough to do it. It looks good, that's for sure.

Box office news

STID took fourth place in its fourth week, grossing an additional $2.9 million on its way to a $35 million total in the UK.

STID made a solid landing in China, with the film grossing $25.8 million in its first six days on release.
Which would mean hat the UK Box Office figure is only about US$250K below ST (2009) taking. So perhaps for the UK we are looking at a final figure of around US$40m.

The most recent trailer for Superman has made me somewhat excited for it. I wouldn't use the Marvel or Batman movies as barometers for its success though. A lot of people view Superman as hokey and out of date but enjoy the Marvel and Batman stuff.

Well the studio might be hoping that the fact that Nolan is invovled with MoS might provide a bump. In the end only time will tell, still it looks interesting.

Looks awful. I don't think it's going to be much of a threat. Supes, though...

I'm not so sure about World War Z. It looks bad, but it currently has an 80% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (out of 10 reviews).

Maybe I'm just sick and tired of zombie stuf and this is informing my opinion, but when I saw the first trailer with the piling zombies, it turned me way off.

WWZ is a big budget, action, apocalypse movie. After Earth was a teen, coming of age movie dressed up in a sci-fi environment. I'm not sure WWZ makes back its enormous budget but it should make a lot of money.

Your personal opinion aside, the zombie genre has never been more popular. There are TV shows, comedy films, multiple video games, best selling books, etc, out in the media today. Sort of what Star Trek once had in its heyday.

99% want to see it... so it'll open big, but may tumble depending on whether the audience wants to see invading hoards of zombies you can't actually see....at least from the teasers.
