That sounds like a rule of acquisition

A contract is a contract is a contract, but only between Chinese.

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

IT seems that the movie here hasn't done very well...

1- There was only one billboard in caracas for the movie

2- The only publicity was on a video -billboard with a very quick and choppy video (10 secs max).

3- By today (Beggining of the second week) Its cinema venues has been reduced by 2/3.

4- No tv adds anywhere.

Anyway I've never had any hopes for the Venezuelan people as a whole, who flock in masses to see "The Smurfs 2: the sequel you NEVER wanted". After all this is the same people who elected Chavez and his "son" Nicolas Maduro.

Japan jumps into the picture on August 23rd.

It was a good weekend here in Caracas, it seems that most of the middle class just went to the movies and most if not all cinemas were packed. Good reactions from the audience, excluding one or two fools.

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

STiD still had a good run at the box office, most sequels don't do as well as their original films, however some of this sequels were always better than the first films....empire sticks back, attacks of the clones and spider man 2 are good examples of films that were much better than their original films however did not earn as much at the box office.



I have a feeling that Trek 3 will be the big one..... STiD was kind of a hit and a miss for me. I surely hope the producers will correct all the mistakes they made in STiD.

Karl Urban wants an original story for the third film , that is a good start.

Here in Brazil, although popular mobilization, boxoffice increased from $ 1.9 M to $ 5.1 M. The Brazilian trekkers helped in social networks. The reaction was excellent. No-trekkers fans liked it and they want to see the next movie. Then we will have a larger audience in 2016. I was happy.

I have a feeling that STID was kind of Batman Begins. It brought theatre to the attention of a wide public. Star Trek 2009 offered something of interest for the general public, but it caused little impact.

But I agree with Urban. The public wants to see original stories, creative stories. But I think JJ. Abrams and cia like to recycle old stories.

It certainly is - bigger daily pulls than Man of Steel and Fast & Furious 6 - very impressive
