I don't remember a time when Trek was 'cool' here, even at the peak of its exposure in my lifetime.
You're in Melbourne, aren't you? I know plenty of Melbourne-based fans who would disagree with you.

I've been approached by numerous work colleagues in Sydney, who know that I'm a fan, and they were boasting that they went to see STiD and they loved it, despite not being Trek fans.

Ditto on Friday, at a work-related conference in Newcastle.

Please lets stop mentioning Nemesis.

You know STID is in trouble when people start mentioning that flop Nemesis. STID might be making more money, but it cost way more to make. It still has a long way to go before making a profit.

ST09 dropped almost 50% each of the following 3 weeks after the opening, and it still made $43 million in its second weekend. STID will have the benefit of Memorial Day weekend for it's second domestic week. ST09 also opened and played in MORE theaters than STID. Likely the per theater count of STID will be slightly higher. If it makes $26-29 million on SAT it will be on par with ST09 ($27.2 million).

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

i saw it thursday night, the theatre was 3/4 full. i saw it again friday night, the show was sold out. But at my theatre they only had two 2-D showings for the whole day. All my local theatre wants to do is push the 3-D movies.

I'd been so actively avoiding spoilers and film-related discussion that I honestly didn't realize the release date had been moved to Thursday until ... this morning. Seems like a very strange move from Paramount. Still, I saw it Friday afternoon and will be going back to see it again as soon as my schedule allows.
I thought the move to Thursday was a bad decision. I didn't even know about the schedule change until the last moment either, and I'm a Trek fan! It decreased the Friday amount and deflated interest for no reason! Stupid Paramount!
The only reason I can think of for why Paramount would do this is a crazy, irrational, conspiracy-theory-based idea that basically goes like this:

At the last moment, Paramount looked at the metrics, realized the numbers were going to come in much lower than expectations, so they tried a desperate, last moment change in the hopes of generating early buzz and/or word-of-mouth. If that failed to work, at least the change would confuse or obfuscate lower numbers than they wanted to see.

Still, the numbers so far aren't bad (even if they aren't breaking the bank) and the film has an 'A' from Cinemascore, so the word-of-mouth might still help.

From Box Office Guru on Twitter:

#StarTrek up about 25% SAT. Good jump from a non-opening day FRI. WED-FRI may end up w/$82-85M. Official studio est to come.

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

Good, glad to see its jumped a bit at least.

I'm still a bit perplexed at the box office though. Word of Mouth has been great, tons of people on my FB (Non-Trekkies) are talking about it and seeing it. I really thought this one would increase in box office over the first one.

I guess the combination of the 4 year wait and IM3 hurt us?

I've been three times with various members of the family and they've all loved the movie. From age six to age seventy.

I really don't understand why this film is struggling?

This thread with all it's ups and downs, bigger budget sequel talk and dead franchise talk is as thrilling as the movie itself.

Actually it has made as much as STFC did when accounting for inflation....in just over a WEEK!

RAMA

First Contact made US$146m.

As it stands ST:ID has only made US$67.2m thus far.

Nemesis made US$67.3m.

So in straight figures it hasn't beaten either of those films yet. True the Sunday figures for the US+Canda and the first full week for the rest of the world (where it was relased on May 9)have yet to come in which should easily push it past First Contact figures.

Whatever happens, Paramount will be fine financially. They did make Iron Man 3 as well.
