    newtontomato, you've been making a lot of posts like this lately - long on smilies and short on meaningful content. It wasn't all that funny to begin with, and now it's just not funny.

    If you've got something substantial to contribute, then that's fine and dandy, but it really is time you stopped spamming.

    Be interesting to see what the weekend and ensuing week bring with Supes in the wings... but the legs are seemingly very good...!

    It has a site that tracks bluray sales but you have to pay for it.

    The movie's doing just fine, and they're going to make another one like it.

    I'm sure the powers that be at Paramount would disagree with your assessment. While not a bomb, given a budget increase of over 26 percent and a massive marketing push, Paramount must surely be disappointed when examining their return on investment. Sure, they'll make "another one" but, unlike this one, they'll probably be far less generous with their purse-strings.

    Don't get the dissapointment with the box office. Let us be clear, this will likely be the most successful Trek movie ever in terms of bums on seats.

    Finally - Trek has made a worldwide splash and is popular in China and other emerging markets. This film will likely make almost half a billion US dollars!

    The next one should do even better - especially if the foreign growth is continued.

    Star Trek looks set to LLAP, which I am happy about.

    The fact that STID will probably make less money domestically than Star Trek 2009 is disconcerting. Man of Steel will make things more unlikely STID cross the $257,730,019 gross of ST09 domestically.

    Then you would be wrong.

    The movie's not doing the domestic business they might have hoped, but it's doing fine and there will be a sequel.

    Since "Star Trek Into Darkness" is making money, that means Prime Trek stays dead. Which means, more Bad Robot Trek will be made.

    I don't have a problem with that. :techman:

    So, given your insight, would they say (to coin a phrase) "we're all very pleased"?

    Since the film is going to turn a healthy profit - for the studio, the term "very pleased" is definitely applicable.

    Prime Trek is dead, despite how STiD does or fails to do. So-called "Trek Purists" seem to have a hard time understanding this.

    Agreed!

    They'll be making another one, which is what I care about. :cool:

    Opening day admissions in France according to the BoxOffice.com forums: 88,477, compared to 59,970 for Star Trek.

    Box Office Mojo hasn't updated for a while, but the folks in the forums over at boxoffice.com are figuring this is currently at about 210 million international gross.

    So it's made more than double it's $190,000,000 budget? What a flop! What a failure! Star Trek is dead!

    So assuming this is true (and it seems likely), $203 million domestic $210 million international= $413 million surpassing the inflation adjusted WW gross of ST09 in just 5 weeks (ST09 played till Sept).
