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

Well it looks like STID is on course to return a proft from the cinema alone. Releastically it has 1 week left in the markets that have MoS opening next week. But STID into Darkness hasn't been released everywhere yet (and isn't set to continue to open in new markets through into August?)

So may US$490m isn't out of the question

DVD and BluRay should add quite well to the total in addition to whatever they get from rental and television.

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

It is a bad start, there is no way to spin these numbers positive. I seriously believe that $200m is in doubt at the moment because of the competition for the rest of May.
I love reading old comments sometimes. STID will not only reach but easily smash $200m. As for Paramount's $490m I still think thats a little on the over optimistic side but including DVD/Blu Ray on top of the Box Office I can see the gross being around $550-600 million.

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

I expect the first DVD release might be huge. Remember "Nemesis", where so many US fans (and members of the general public) seemingly chose "Maid in Manhattan" on opening weekend, and fans spent months boasting online how they'd blackbanned "Nemesis"... but when the DVD came out, sales were way beyond expectations. Presumably all those people who'd denied themselves a cinema experience wanted to check it out after all, and as soon as they could.

STiD may do the same domestically.

I posted that It was a possibility at the time but I am happy to be wrong of course

OTOH I am sad that we didn't increase on ST09 and get to $300m!

I regret missing the IMAX version, but I will probably still see it a second time before closing, maybe in 2D. I like the standard 3D but it is a little blurry. Superman opened at the local IMAX today.

Star Trek Into Darkness made $11.7 million in its fourth weekend, dropping only 30% from the previous week. It's showing strong legs.

I thought MoS opened on the 14th June.
