Of course there's going to be another Star Trek movie. That's never been in doubt.

Never in my mind, anyway. It has been sad, at times, reading this thread.

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

Should the next movie come out in May again? Or a different month? Could this movie have made more money at a different time of year or is May the best time that makes Trek the most money?

Money = Happy Paramount = More Trek!

With the movie probably hitting 200 million US around this weekend, and the likelihood of it getting at least 200 mil from overseas markets, I'd say this movie will probably end up somewhere comfortably in the mid 400 million range. Not a bad result.

I don't think it can get to 500 mil now, sadly. But it may happen. It's been doing very well in China and Korea. They may just push us over the line.
Yeah with how it's going now, I too lament Star Trek not making the $500 million mark.

Well obviously it's been in doubt for some people here.

Hard to say. Could the next one face less competition and have a higher chance of being a big blockbuster, or should Paramount aim for a calmer month and take a chance at being top dog there ? Hummm...

May is probably the best time, yes. The last two JJTrek movies have successfully launched in May.

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

I feel as though I've done my part. I've seen the movie three times. I may consider going again. Of course, I live in Australia, so I often feel my voice is not counted when it comes to Star Trek. I was probably one of the twenty people who watched Enterprise here, when they shoved it in the 12am death slot on TV. A lot of Aussie fans just resorted to pirating the episodes, because they relegated all the shows to the graveyard shift on TV, the time zone where you get adult chat lines advertised.

I'm not sure how much of the international gross makes it to the studio, either.

It's made $13,838,405 here. According to Box office Mojo.

Although with Disney ramping up production on an endless stream of Star Wars movies (historically released in May), Paramount may not want to directly face the competition.

I've seen it four times on the IMAX since release which is £50! Think that's enough for me, not to mention the people I've dragged along to see it who have enjoyed it greatly.

This. If Disney starts releasing Star Wars movies every May, Paramount will have to find another month that works for Trek.

Sure. There's no way in hell that Trek can hold against Wars.

Even if they go: main episode, spin-off, main episode, spin-off, etc., I find it hard to believe Disney can make it an annual event.

Biennial is definitely possible though. So Paramount would just have to put Trek out in the off years.

That's what happened with the TOS and SW movies in the 1980s, wasn't it?

More or less, yeah.

You had:

ANH 77
Nothing 78
TMP 79
ESB 80
Nothing 81
TWOK 82
ROTJ 83
TSFS 84

So just going basing from that, the spin-offs would go in the two empty years. Or that's what I was trying to go for.
