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

Star Trek (2009) took a shade under US$128m in the rest of the world.

From BoxOffice.com on Twitter:
Wonder how much the legs will go

$230ish US total.
Wonder how the 176.4 international figure stacks up against 09?
Well 09 being what $127m total oversea's and Paramount has said it could go up to $290m though I think $250m is probably the highest it will go.

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

From BoxOffice.com, more detail on this weekend's international take. Note the excellent hold in Korea.

Star Trek Into Darkness reached a $176.4 million overseas total over the weekend, already outpacing the performance of its predecessor with pending releases in major markets like Japan, France, Italy, Spain, and Brazil. An additional $9 million from China saw the Star Trek sequel nearly outgross the previous entry in the same market by 500%. South Korea contributed $3.3 million as well, a mere 22% drop from its opening weekend. Star Trek Into Darkness will open in Brazil, Italy, and France next weekend. The latest entry in the Star Trek franchise currently posts a $376.5 million global cume.

All good news!! STID will match ST09's WW 4 months of release total in about a month within a few days. Last week I said it would likely hit between $360-370 million by monday, but it has already surpassed that!

Paramount should be fairly happy, saying it has yet to open in some markets

They're projecting $490 million. I think they're very happy.
You mean all this fatalistic stuff upthread was ... fatalistic ?





RIP Star Trek
It is a bad start, there is no way to spin these numbers positive. I seriously believe that $200m is in doubt at the moment because of the competition for the rest of May.
Those people couldn't reason themselves out of a paper bag. We told them they were wrong THEN they are even more wrong now.

If you look at the context if me saying that, it was completely facetious.

That's not good news, it's bad news. The more successful the movie is financially the more likely it is that they'll make more. I was hoping the movie would be unsuccessful financially, because then maybe they'd finally stop making them. I'd rather they simply air re-runs of Picard walking around his ready room explaining the finer points of his moral and ethical values calmly and politely instead of another two hours of explosions, loud noises, and flashing lights.

I'm very optimistic about Brazil. Here was a hit in IMAX. I will watch on Sunday (june 16th) and will send a photo for you. My guess is $20 M or more.

According to the reviews and online viewer ratings you are in the vast minority...which is your right, just as long as you realize it.

My favourite part of TNG was when they cited a cosmic force/plan as a reason not to save a pre-warp civilization.

Truly intellectual and high brow.

No one is forcing you to watch it. You don't like it which is fine. But ST being a success is good news all round.

Interest in the film might get a few people to look at the TV shows.

A good return on the film could demonstrate that there is a demand for ST, which could in thery result in a new TV show being commissioned.

And I'd rather watch more Star Trek films with this new cast and universe. So I think this is excellent news.

See, I'm perfectly fine with you not liking these movies. Totally your prerogative. But why the desire to deprive many, many others of something they clearly enjoy? That, I've never understood.

Well, this is an obnoxious attitude. The back catalog of the franchise isn't going anywhere -- TOS and TNG, especially, are widely syndicated, and all of the series are available on Netflix streaming. So why root for the new movies to fail?

In any event, if you want CBS to continue investing in expensive high definition upgrades for the Berman-era series, a financially successful film franchise will only increase the chances of that project going forward.
