From a financial aspect it wouldn't. That's money that will be tied up for 18-24 months not doing anything other than racking up interest the studio will have to pay back.
Yeah, from the financial aspect, that makes sense. Could be Quinto is just wrong about ST3, especially if Abrams will direct it. I've read SW is to start shooting in 2014. If he's to direct ST3, as the Quinto article insinuates, Abrams can't be in two places at once.

My point was if they indeed shoot it in 2014 for whatever reason, a 2015 release would throw the movie out there into some extremely harsh competition. The SW publicity alone would overwhelm it. Better to wait to 2016 based on that, at least.

I'd discount what Quinto said about shooting in 2014, though what he says about moving forward on a faster track makes sense in the context of the four year gap between ST09 and STID. We don't need ST3 in 2017, that's for sure.

nuSTIII will release sometime in 2016 and the marketing will include the "50th Anniversary of Star Trek" somewhere.

I believe Quinto is just bluffing. There is no way Trek 3 is shooting in 2014 with JJ as the director.

no way.

I'd be (pleasantly) surprised if the next movie shoots next year and it's directed by J.J. Abrams, but I'm expecting it to shoot in 2015 with a new director at the helm.

Well it is possible JJ could direct the next ST film. If SW is scheduled to come out in 2015, that would mean it would shoot in 2014. So a shoot starting mid 2015 after SW comes out is entirely possible for a 2016 release.

It's already been mentioned that he's going to have some pretty heavy post-production and editing work to do on SW, though.

True, but if SW comes out in May 2015. The Next ST film could start filming in say July allowing for a 3-4 month shoot. Allow another 5-6 months for post production and a May 2016 release could be made.

It would be very tough to make two big FX movies in different franchises that close together. Plus Abrams may well stick with Star Wars for a while and move directly on to Episode VIII.

$222.5 million is the updated total as of last Sunday. It was $220.8 million the week before that.

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

The foreign box office should get a boost when the film opens in Japan.

Benedict Cumberbatch arrived on the 15th to start the PR for the film's opening. Over 1000 fans from all over the country showed up at the airport to greet him. He's more popular there than Tom Cruise or Johnny Depp.

In addition to a press conference and TV appearance, Benedict also introduced the film at 3 showings. He was given an Enterprise-and-John Harrison birthday cake (it's his birthday on the 19th of this month) and the fans sang 'Happy Birthday' to him.

During the press conference, Benedict commented that other members of the cast would be in Japan in August. Not sure if there will be a formal premiere or not, but it looks like Paramount is pulling out all the stops to ensure the film gets as much PR support as possible.

Cumberbatch is a major star in Asia and it's likely the boost to China's box office had something to do with his casting.

Let's ask for the Japanese friends to help Star Trek Into Darkness to achieve grossing $500 million worldwide. Yes, we can!

That'd be great, but I doubt Japan has the population to make it so! I'm guessing $460m, maybe $470, as a finish. If it scrapes the $470, that'd be a pretty damn decent take actually. Certainly, it'd be quite a stretch to describe the film as any kind of genuine "disappointment" IMHO.
