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

We'll have a much better idea of how things are shaping up once we have the Friday number, especially given the late move of the release date. Until then: keep calm and carry on.

14m (including 3.2m on Wed/Thurs midnight) which is disappointing
Not according to industry analysts, who have called the numbers for a completely unadvertised date change "amazing".

I think it makes me believe the 85m 4 day number which is poor.
You're clearly expecting Avatar numbers from a movie that has the words Star and Trek in the title. Not possible. The Star Trek stigma will still be with us for one or two more sequels.

It should improve on the 09 numbers and to do that it needs to do far better.

Star Trek is over, RIP.

13 from 14 isn't too bad. Today is the test though, aye.

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

From Box Office Guru on Twitter:

#StarTrek opens to $13.5M for WED/THU. Soft start, but last-minute date change & A CinemaScore means FRI will soar.
Intl cume for #StarTrek thru THU is $47M, global at $60.5M. 33 new mkts open this weekend incl Russia. China/Korea late May.

Indeed, the date change was pretty poorly advertised. My theater, like many of yours I assume, plays little trivia snippets that relate to current and coming attractions before the movie starts. The blurb in the trivia snippet for STID that I saw before the movie still said "Star Trek Into Darkness, opening May 17th." RIGHT BEFORE THE MOVIE.

Keep in mind the big test is how this will do internationally. Those were the numbers that were disappointing from the 2009 film. Still, I think a large gap (relatively by modern standards) between the two films didn't help.

Well I will think positive instead for a moment. I will allow myself that luxury for once

Overseas numbers are exceptionally good compared to Star Trek (2009) and the Russia opening day number was apparently 400% higher than ST09. This is awesome news because Russia is a big emerging market and this bodes well for China/Brazil/Korea/Japan. On the subject of South Asia I believe Star Trek Into Darkness is also doing very well in Hong Kong. This is also great news.

In the United Kingdom, the market most saturated by nuTrek outside of the USA, the opening weekend was the equivalent of Star Trek Into Darkness earning $108m over the same 4-day period. Hopefully this will happen though I believe a 30+m Friday and similar Saturday will be required.

The A cinemascore is an excellent indication of positive word of mouth and will hopefully translate into good 'legs' for Star Trek over the next several weeks so that even if the opening is lower than expected, in the end the box office will still be high.

They should've just left the release date alone.

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

No,the day earlier release date is a good idea, because it gives Trek more time before the new Fast and Furious movie rolls out. I'm no expert on analyzing market or box office trends, but I think that the real test will be today's showing and not Thursdays, because the movie has been advertised for the May 17th release date for ages, and the date change was sudden and last minute. Most of the news I am seeing, are still saying that the movie has a good chance at reaching $100m by the end of Sunday. Also, aside form the sudden date change, Thursday is not a typical movie day for most people.
