Maybe the Top Gear guys should try and make a one billion dollar movie. How hard could it be?

It'll be interesting to see what the Japanese take will be--460 combined is not out of the question...

I was really hoping for $470m, looking like that's unlikely now.

STID 448,700 Total worldwide so far.

TOTAL for Star Trek 2009: Worldwide: $385,680,446

I would think this is a clear success, no?

There will be another boost this weekend. If it is 100 freaking million over the last movie's gross... how can "disappointment" even be uttered?

Well, you see...

If you only count only the money made by the 2d showings, adjust for inflation, and divide by 7 for no apparent reason, how can you possibly say it's a success?!

It's a solid success, but it's not going to make $100 million more than the last one, more like $75 million more by the end of its run. That's decent and certainly enough for another sequel to be made, but not quite the box office jump the studio would have wanted given the budget increase, a much bigger international push, and the 3D release. The international release was a success, posting a substantial gain over the last film, while the domestic gross was fine, but the drop there meant that the worldwide gross isn't quite as triumphant as it might have been.

I think for some, no matter how much it pulls in, it will not be a success. In face of the massive flops that have been occurring in the last few weeks, the argument is ridiculous. It has been a success and I am glad to see it.

Never underestimate the truTrekfan's compulsion at straw-grasping.

Absolutely. Pacific Rim is a bigger flop than Into Darkness, and don't get me started on R.I.P.D.

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

This summer's sequels have almost all been hits to one degree or another, while the efforts to launch new big budget franchises have mostly failed, some spectacularly so.

And the same has been said about TAS, TMP, ST IV and TNG in their day. And the original run of TOS.
