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

If you adjust for inflation, then ST2009's dollar figure is $1,400,394.

STID is going to bring in less box office revenue domestically than ST2009. Also, it's doing worse amongst the younger demographic (which studios covet).

Only 25 percent of those who went to see "Into Darkness" were under 25 years of age. That's considerably less than the 35 percent that the previous film attracted, and it's far more older-skewing than the first-weekend audiences for Disney's "Iron Man 3," which was 45 percent under 25, 27 percent families and 21 percent teens.

And its far, far stronger in international markets which was one thing that was very important to Paramount.

I don't know if someone has posted this elsewhere, but Michael Giacchino's STID score has topped the UK classical charts.

newtontomato, you've been making a lot of posts like this lately - long on smilies and short on meaningful content. It wasn't all that funny to begin with, and now it's just not funny.

If you've got something substantial to contribute, then that's fine and dandy, but it really is time you stopped spamming.

Be interesting to see what the weekend and ensuing week bring with Supes in the wings... but the legs are seemingly very good...!

ST09 was back on the DVD sales chart again in April and in May. It surpassed 7 million units and $102 million now.
Cool, if I recall that site doesn't include blu rays either and DVDs are pretty cheap now, even new ones.
It has a site that tracks bluray sales but you have to pay for it.

The movie's doing just fine, and they're going to make another one like it.

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

I'm sure the powers that be at Paramount would disagree with your assessment. While not a bomb, given a budget increase of over 26 percent and a massive marketing push, Paramount must surely be disappointed when examining their return on investment. Sure, they'll make "another one" but, unlike this one, they'll probably be far less generous with their purse-strings.

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

Don't get the dissapointment with the box office. Let us be clear, this will likely be the most successful Trek movie ever in terms of bums on seats.

Finally - Trek has made a worldwide splash and is popular in China and other emerging markets. This film will likely make almost half a billion US dollars!

The next one should do even better - especially if the foreign growth is continued.

Star Trek looks set to LLAP, which I am happy about.

The fact that STID will probably make less money domestically than Star Trek 2009 is disconcerting. Man of Steel will make things more unlikely STID cross the $257,730,019 gross of ST09 domestically.

Then you would be wrong.

The movie's not doing the domestic business they might have hoped, but it's doing fine and there will be a sequel.

Since "Star Trek Into Darkness" is making money, that means Prime Trek stays dead. Which means, more Bad Robot Trek will be made.

I don't have a problem with that.
