One thing I did think about before was that I saw this film about three times, but I saw Trek 09 double that. It feels like Trek 09 was more of an event and was in cinemas longer, even though I thought ID was a better movie.
I'll echo that... it's still in the dollar theaters here BTW. Just think that STiD was a much better all around movie. OTOH Trek 09 was restarting a franchise, much like Casino Royale with James Bond, and more people were interested in the outcome - seemed as if just as many people wanting it to fail as to succeed.

^That's not strictly true you don't have to use a comma or a decimal place. I was taught you use a space i.e. 10 000, 1 000 000.

Clancy_s did note that such was the custom in Spanish-speaking countries. (I suspect that the country in which you were taught to use a space is not one of these.)

It would be cool if it gets an IMAX re-release in September like ST09 did. I may go see it a second time.

Well more than spanish speaking countries, most of the world uses the dot (.) for thousands and the comma (,) for decimals.

Star Trek (2009) Made only $ 568000

Lets hope for more this time!

It surely has!!!

Now is there any estimate on how much it will make in Japan?

Will it double it previous take, just like in South Korea or will the Cumberbatchness take over the country?

I'm hoping STID can take the Japanese BO for at least 10 million. That is assuming the movie is not being pirated already.

I think it will make at least 10 mill and in a very positive scenario it might lead up to 15 mill.

but the welcome Japanese with Cumberbatch was very good. I was surprised to see so many people waiting for him. It looked like a pop star.

If box office doesn´t get close to $20 million I'll be disappointed with them.

Yeah there are a lot of Sherlock fans in Japan. So he's a big celebrity to them already. Hopes still high.

"Hollywood studios have not been paid by the organisation which represents Chinese cinema distributors for a number of months, a period during which blockbusters such as Skyfall, Man of Steel and Star Trek Into Darkness have pulled in hundreds of millions of dollars at the local box office, according to the Hollywood Reporter."
