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

It would make sense for Trek to make the most of it's 50th Anniversary year, the actual date is in August.
September. September 8,1966 is when it premiered here in the States.

But September is usually a poor month for films. So they either go May, July or December.

A Christmas 2015 opening would be a good way to kick off the anniversary year, plus we wouldn't have to wait quite so long.

September isn't a good box office month.

It looks like the earlier in May, the better.

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

December's good for Oscar bait and Harry Potter. Spring/Summer it is - almost certainly May.

And STID heads into this weekend with a domestic take of $188,440,439. It will probably end the weekend a million or so shy of the 200 million dollar mark, but looks pretty strong for winding up with 230 million domestic or a little better by the end of its run.

For whatever it's worth STID is $8 million behind it's predecessor at the same point in release (just before the 4th weekend), $188.4M vs $196.7M. ST09 went on to make 60 million more the rest of the way, so 230 million for STID may be achievable.

STID is losing 433 theaters this weekend but still is in over 3100 theaters.

Also bear in mind that the difference in gross for the same number of days is because the opening day for STID was unplanned and only with about 300 theatres.

The limited release from the night before the full opening day doesn't count as one of the days in release. It's rolled into the following opening day. That's the case for both Star Trek and STiD. Box Office Mojo is comparing the same number of full days in release between the two.

I agree that comparison based on number of days in release is kind of silly in this case. That's why the boxoffice numbers I listed is not based on that. These are numbers each movie had done before the start of the 4th weekend in release (before the 4th Friday in release).

Ok, I was refering to BoxOfficeMojo's comparisons, then. After 18 days, it claimed it only made 181 million, which looking at the daily grosses means they keep the first day apart from the second.

It had made $181 million after 18 full days in release. The $2 million from Wednesday night isn't counted as a separate day in release. It's rolled into the Thursday opening day. Thursday the 16th May to Sunday the 2nd June is 18 days in release.

Likewise, the $4 million Star Trek made from its Thursday night sneaks aren't counted as a day in release for the comparison purposes. It's rolled into the Friday opening day. Star Trek's first 18 days in release are from Friday the 8th May 2009 to Monday the 25th May 2009. The different release pattern will inevitably skew the comparison.

Box Office Mojo lists the Wednesday and Thursday night sneaks respectively on the dailly numbers page for the two films, but for the purposes of comparing them after X number of days in release neither of those count as a day in release.
