Saw it again today in a 2/3 full theatre at a 1:00 Saturday matinee in non-traditionally-fan-location Oklahoma. Good sign, there.

I get my nerd card back, about a half full IMAX theater in Dublin CA for the 12:30 showing.

Fun movie, both me and my son had good time.

you guys are worried about nothing, the movie is doing ok relative to st09,but very well internationally. ST09 made $101 million from dvd, and maybe $30 or 40 million from blurry. Add $30 million from FX. Stid will make more overall BO than st09 and will make $550-600 million from all sources.

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

I "contributed" my $11 (yikes, that's why I don't go to the movies much anymore) today, and really liked the movie. Quite intense and exciting, despite knowing spoilers. And I "merely" liked the 2009 one so wasn't expecting to enjoy ID as much as I did (give it 9.5/10 for a few personal nitpicks, lol). Am sort of intrigued by the notion of seeing it in 3-D, but since that version is probably more expensive (?), will probably wait for the DVD, lol. Anyway, Leonard N.'s Spock is still my #1, but now am more "converted" to nuTrek, so well done all involved! (PS for a 4PM Sat. show theater was about 60 % filled, which I thought was pretty good for 3rd weekend.)

Movies have pretty much kept pace with paperback books and takeaway meals over the decades, haven't they?

In Australia, I buy booklets of ten tickets at a time, which saves several dollars per movie - and I pay a few extra dollars if it's a 3D movie (and I keep a spare pair of 3D specs in my satchel). I would rarely buy a one-off ticket.

Another viewing - probably the last one in 3D until the DVD comes out for me. About 3/4 full for the 3:30 start time.

I'm probably going to go a fourth time.

What about merchandising? Does that play into it at all? I've seen the movie three times, but I also bought the Into Darkness soundtrack album, and the novelisation

Merchandising is reported separately. I understand that pre-sales of expensive merchandising licenses for tie-ins to "Batman Returns", caused by Warners and retailers almost being caught unaware by the size of the 1989 hit, "Batman", meant that its sequel was already a financial success without even being released! But the $$$ are not reported that way.

Tie-ins to STiD are relatively soft compared to other movies. So was ST II, actually, after ST:TMP toys, mugs and clothing had only limped out of the stores.

Wish there were more... National Amusements had a special cup you could purchase but that was about it... Haven't been to the Regal cinemas yet to see what they have to offer. Nothing from AMC...I still had the special gift card (Spock) from ST09 that I used this past week. The ticket taker and concessions employees thought it was a great idea.

From ERC on Twitter:

STAR TREK: ID beamed up $37.6M overseas this weekend w/ $25M from China, $5M from Korea. Int'l total: $147.4M.
That's $20 million more than the total foreign gross of Star Trek.

I got some Star Trek Kre-O and it's awesome... can't find any more though! Terrible distributing where I live, apparently.
In other words, I can't see how merchandising will help if consumers can't find it/there isn't any available. I remember after The Phantom Menace, Star Wars scaled back the sheer volume of its toys considerably... there are probably still places tucked away somewhere with heaps of Jar Jar Binks frisbees and Jake Llyod action figures.
