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

Well, if Will Smith's latest son-promoting vehicle is a big turd, STID may have good legs until Supes comes out...

I've seen the After Earth trailer with each of my four STID viewings, and genuinely, I've heard "not interested" or "looks boring" type comments from nearby audience members every time. I have a feeling it's going to have a huge "MEH" factor, and won't be a fly in Trek's ointment.

if they have a sequel out three years from now in 2016, that's better than the four year gap but ideally a two year gap, like between most of the TOS and TNG movies would be better.
It'll be 2016 to take advantage of the 50th anniversary.
Is there really any advantage in that though?

I'd like to see a movie in 2015 and then a television series in 2016 to mark the anniversary... at the risk of oversaturating the market again...

The marketing for Skyfall made very good use of the 50th anniversary of Bond, so, yes, there's a potential advantage in it.

Well, I think 2016 would be the likely target release for the next film anyway. The anniversary is just one factor that could help the marketing. If it doesn't make a difference then c'est la vie.

I went and saw a regular 2D showing Sat., 3rd time to see the film here in Lex, KY. I would say theater was about 1/3rd full, everyone seemed to be having a good time, even heard an 8 or so year old girl say she like it alot, but liked Ironman better....oh well, it's a start.
A little girl into Iron Man and Star Trek? Sounds like a win to me!

Yeah, I think they'll do some heavy marketing for the 50th.

So the other long runner Sci-Fi show, DW didn't do much for it's 40th anniversary either off the air, though by that time I think it had been leaked that it was coming back. I think dear old AUntie Beeb planned to make the offical announcment on it's 40th Birthday.

IMDB has the release dates here. I can't vouch for if they're all correct or if that's a complete list, though.

Revised estimates from Box Office Mojo for the 4-day weekend:

Friday - $10,001,000
Saturday - $14,420,000
Sunday - $12,863,000
Monday - $9,716,000
