Didn't know anyone was keeping score. I'm gone.

I'm sure the powers that be at Paramount would disagree with your assessment.
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.
So, given your insight, would they say (to coin a phrase) "we're all very pleased"?

Since the film is going to turn a healthy profit - for the studio, the term "very pleased" is definitely applicable.

Since "Star Trek Into Darkness" is making money, that means Prime Trek stays dead. Which means, more Bad Robot Trek will be made.
Prime Trek is dead, despite how STiD does or fails to do. So-called "Trek Purists" seem to have a hard time understanding this.

I don't have a problem with that.
Agreed!

No.

They'll be making another one, which is what I care about.

Box Office Mojo hasn't updated for a while, but the folks in the forums over at boxoffice.com are figuring this is currently at about 210 million international gross.

So assuming this is true (and it seems likely), $203 million domestic $210 million international= $413 million surpassing the inflation adjusted WW gross of ST09 in just 5 weeks (ST09 played till Sept).

The numbers are unreliable from the period, but STTMP made $430 million adjusted. STID needs $17 million to tie that:

STTMP: $430 milliom
STID: $413 million (unoffical)
ST09: $408 million

I love the "inflation adjusted" tweak to the posts...

It should end up with at least $480-490 million and has a decent shot at going over $500 million.
