I disagree I've seen more adverts for ST:ITD than for "The Fast and Furious". So perhaps it's more down to where you live and what TV channels you watch.
Yes, me too. Definitely seen a higher frequency of STID advertising.

Re: International box office thread

70% increase, if that holds with other markets (excluding US) then we are looking at a good oversea figure.

Star Trek Into Darkness earned $31.7 million in seven foreign markets, which was 70% higher than the overseas debuts four years ago for Star Trek in those specific markets, boding well for a stronger overseas total than the first film’s somewhat weak $127.9 million foreign haul

The U.K. is the biggest market on the list, where the sci-fi film grossed $13.3 million in 556 locations.
Good start indeed

Star Trek Into Darkness began its overseas roll-out over the weekend, grossing $31.7 million in seven markets.

The combined figures from these territories are almost 70% better than the results of 2009's Star Trek in the same territories. The U.K. is the biggest market on the list, where the sci-fi film grossed $13.3 million in 556 locations.

70% Wow that's way higher than I was expecting.

Thanks Jax. I got the initial info from their Facebook page, hadn't checked their main website until a couple of minutes ago.

Re: International box office thread

I'm no analyst or expert, but this movie seems like it could very well crack $500m. The last Trek made $385,494,555 world-wide, and this one, by all accounts, seems to be doing much better over seas, at least early on. It has a lot more hype here in the USA anyway, since there are ads everywhere, and the actors have been appearing on just about every talk-show. I just hope it makes enough for a third movie .

Given the budget increase. I think a taking of US$450 would ensure a third film.

A 3rd film will be made, no doubt. Only thing I no get, why you need a 3rd (bad) film ?
People to go see STID, no talking fans, are people to go see an action movie they saw in the trailers, they no care ST and never will.
No matter what money the movies will make, it will be the end of the franchise for real. No way they can do these action packed scenes for a series, and for a TV serie in this new universe without this action, they will not have the fans anymore.

Re: International box office thread

Well, I have not seen the new one yet (It opens here next week) But i I did really enjoy the 09 movie It's not my fav Trek film, but it is enjoyable, and it is cool to see the universe and characters and creatures re-imagined with more modern effects and a bigger budget.

Re: International box office thread

From Box Office Mojo:

A week ahead of its U.S. opening, Star Trek Into Darkness opened to $31.7 million from seven foreign markets this weekend. According to Paramount, the movie was up an average of 70 percent on its predecessor across those markets; while that sounds great, it's worth noting that the first Star Trek only earned $128 million overseas. The movie's top market was the U.K. with $13.3 million (up 50 percent), and it was also great in Germany ($7.6 million, up 80 percent), and Australia (up 50 percent).

One major highlight for Star Trek Into Darkness: in markets where Star Trek hasn't been a particularly strong brand—Mexico, New Zealand, Austria—the movie was up 250 percent from its predecessor. Extrapolate that in to expanding markets like Russia (May 16th), China (May 28th) and Brazil (June 14th), and Star Trek Into Darkness could be on course for a foreign total north of $300 million.

OK, it seems I was possibly being way too pessimistic, which is great news!
