That's awesome.

Now, how are the DVD and Bluray sales?

With ST09 there was a press release a week or so later that said 5.7 million sold, so I think we should get something saying about 2 million sold this time because the sales of BR/DVD are dropping every year.

Then in a few months they will be on the-numbers.com

2016 100% (there's no way they WOULDN'T release it in the year that's the 50tyh anniversary of the debut of TOS on NPC.)

If they don't release in that timeframe, someone at marketing/promotion will get fired.

ST09 sold about 8 million DVD units and 3.9 million bluray units.

Trekweb reports Into Darkness bombed at the Japanese box office. So much for Ben Cumberbatch's superstar status there.

I can't imagine coming out three months later helped it out in Japan any.

I bet Abrams is really regretting that he didn't take my advice and have the Cloverfield monster wreck San Francisco instead of the Vengeance in the Japanese release right about now.

Seriously though, as said, opening over three months later? I bet most die hard Trekkies in Japan found alternate means of viewing it by then. Of course, that can't account for its failure completely since non-fans obviously weren't interested, but it couldn't have helped, either.

It'll probalby beat ST09's Japanese gross by 100%. Not too shabby

How much did 09 make in Japan? As long as it's an improvement it's not quite a bomb.

$9 million US in three weeks is bombing there? That's just short of double Star Trek 2009's take for five weeks.

One of the negative reviews cited seems mostly to fault the movie for not being TMP. Another boils down to "Captain Kirk is an a$$hole" and "even the Japanese subtitles didn’t tell the story correctly."
