Actually a great hold... but this is the last hurrah I'm sure.

I just booked tickets to see STID again in 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall, where a live orchestra will play the musical score.

I agree with this. SW, as much as I love it (and I happen to be one of the people who like the prequels despite the fact that they're kind of crappy), is not science fiction, per se. It's a space opera that has no clue as to how science works.
That's kinda the case for most of sci-fi, however.

Why are we talking about ESB?

Im hoping with international numbers, and the smaller dropoff (1035 theaters but a holiday) STID may get over $450 million by early next week.

Almost forgot, my stepdaughter went to visit her bf and she converted him into a trekkie...she started off with STID then showed him every pilot episode of each show on netflix!

STID did 500k on Saturday according to bo.com forums.

ESB is a great movie I agree but I'd rather watch several Trek movies over it anytime because great as it may be it does not feature my favourite characters and it's not even the right galaxy !

Just popping in to say that I saw Into Darkness for the 4th time last week, this time in the United States with Yeoman Randi!
How is she? I haven't heard from her in over a year.
She's doing great, we had a fantastic time together. And she loved the movie!

After more than 2600 replies, I think a wee bit of "thread drift" is natural and somewhat inevitable! Things tend to worm their way back on topic though.

Funny how it has more staying power than Fast/Furious, but wasn't as front-loaded... Too bad it didn't open with more of a bang and exhibit these legs, but the overseas totals more than make up for that lag.

With Japan the last semi-major market yet to open... that will add 5 mill or more and get the total up to 450. Compared with 411 adjusted for 2009, not too shabby!

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

In my area, there are three cinemas that have showtime listings for Furious 6, and the film is still taking in money.

For myself, I am happy to see films like The Heat doing so well. This film has made nearly a $100 million on a $43 million budget. Wow. Go Sandra!

The Fast & Furious sequels have always been frontloaded. The franchise's audience skews young, they rush to see the films early on and a fast drop-off follows, even when word of mouth is good. The really impressive thing about the F&F films is the huge growth in international box office.

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

guys please read this article from Entertainment Weekly, one of the most trusted entertainment sites ever

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/07/0...ormances-2013/


trek did not make the list. which means to an extent it has been a box office disappointment. I think it is time for us to face reality and look to the future. I hope next time the producers of trek 3 would not listen to a loud minority of trek fans who are demanding that Trek goes back to TOS Mode.

I am not disrespecting TOS. TOS was great of its time. The series is a classic and it even made EW 100 greatest TV shows of all time.

However TOS is now of the past , what made trek 09 a huge success was because it was bold, fresh , unapologetic and daring. Even with its flaws it is without a doubt an outstanding film.

STiD was much more of a huge fan service to TOS trek fans thereby alienating new fans...The box office is proof of that.

STiD is still a huge success but it was not as successful as the studios intended. world wide the film needs to do 500m for it to be a success without question. Sadly it wont get there.

STiD should have done 270m+ in USA and 500m Worldwide.
