I honestly don't get the love for this crap.
Well one thing that might help the UK Box Office for F&F6 is it being partly set in the UK given the trailers.

As for me it's not the type of film I would pay to see at the cinema, I might catch it on TV.
STID was partially set in the UK as well. Although it is doing pretty well in the UK, I guess.

F&F is a ridiculous franchise. Can't believe it's made it to six movies. You'd have to pay me to see it.

I don't know who is handling the merchandising for this film (CBS, Paramount, Bad Robot)? But whoever it is, is doing a really shitty job.
There just wasn't as many high-profile takers (like Kellogg's) this time around as there was with Star Trek XI. The various licenses for merchandise was there, but not many were interested.

With Kellogg's, it might have been that they really didn't see an increase in sales with Star Trek XI and saw no reason to try something with Star Trek XII...

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

If this is the last Abrams era film, will I be disappointed? Yes. Can I live with it? Yes. Trek as a brand is very unlikely to die. Someone else may get a crack at it, in ten years, fifteen years,etc. Maybe even sooner. Reboots come along much more quickly these days than they used to.

I was disappointed that Timothy Dalton only got two movies as Bond (one of my favourite Bonds), but his 2 are still IMO two of the best in the franchise. Audiences weren't ready for a darker take on the character at that time. At least we got two films of his.

I kind of have the same philosophy about Abrams Trek. I can live with it if this is the last we see of it. The next person to head the franchise, should this film not get a sequel, will probably reboot again

They say word of mouth is kicking in, which would explain the higher than anticipated bump for Saturday and Sunday.

Unfortunately, they also say the summer movie season has not been this competitive in 20 years.

This is not the last film of the Bad Robot era. There's at least one yet to go, in 2016.

Box office Mojo:
$ 84,091,000 USA
$80,500,000 Foreign Gross
= $164,591,000 Worldwide Gross. What do you think? disappointing or not that bad?

It doesn't feel like the end, only the beginning. But worst-case scenario, I got two big-budget, fun, action-packed Star Trek films which I'll enjoy again and again.

I hope that they get to work on the next movie right away, so we don't have to wait another four years. Hopefully they will also not release it right in between two huge action movies!

It's both.

Look at the title of this topic - that's what the movie was expected to do a couple of weeks ago. At the last minute Paramount decided to open it a day early, and their expectations climbed in the days before release. The movie has disappointed those late studio expectations. Nonetheless, this is a successful release so far; Paramount's getting the big bump up in foreign money that just about their entire marketing campaign - and to a great extent, the content of this movie - has been aimed at from the beginning.

Everyone breath into a paper bag for a couple of minutes, or something. Sheesh!

164 mil worldwide is not to be sniffed at, considering it's only been out for a week (in other territories). It should make its budget back by next weekend, and then it's all profit. Right? Right? Give me some good news here

All movies these days need to make more than double its budget to make a profit.

That's just not so. Why does anyone still believe that?

Does 190 mil include marketing budget?
