    Right, so STID isn't in the billion dollar league, but it is still in the top three blockbusters this summer. Maybe not for long, once Man of Steel catches fire.

    It should still finish in the top ten movies of the year, I should hope.

    Yeah. Much like Star Trek and Star Wars are the Beatles and Rolling Stones of sci fi. You can like both, but not both equally.

    That was to be expected. I said a while back in this thread that they would probably end up with similar domestic grosses despite F&F 6's bigger opening. The F&F franchise has always been extremely frontloaded domestically.

    If the year-end chart for 2013 is similar to the last few years, STiD will likely be about #8 for the year domestically and about #14 worldwide.

    I like Batman and Superman equally.

    I like The Beatles and The Stones equally.

    I like Star Trek and Star Wars equally.

    It's really not too difficult.

    Japan usually opens movies months after other countries. From what I understand, they want to see how well it does elsewhere first. If true, it's kinda weird.

    Yes. Sure. And I like both my daughters equally. ;)

    Well, you probably can, but that means appreciating the stylistic differences that distinguish and define them. At least in my opinion, it's not playing to strength for a Superman movie to have a brooding and overly grave feel to it any more than I would want to hear a Beatles cover of "Sympathy for the Devil" or have Kirk's first officer be a character like a Wookiee.

    I live in Toronto, my family decided to take my dad to see MOS while I wasn't shocked to find MOS was sold out I was shocked that STID was also sold out too. This was a large theater downtown so I guess we know where some of the MOS overspill is going haha!

    I tend to agree. Having been a Kirkaholic for over 40 years, I was wary going into the '09 film. Very shocked, yet pleasantly surprised with the new direction; overall I am happy with how things turned out. I am pleased with my hundred buck contribution to the franchise at the cinema.

    I don't need any Kirk. That said, I've enjoyed watching the both of them and expect to see one or two more.

    Lex Luthor is Superman's greatest villain, not Zod.

    It'd be moronic to say it's impossible.

    STID opened with $3.1 million in this weekend in Brazil. Whereas Star Trek 2009 grossed only $ 1.9 million, that calls for a celebration. Besides country's media coverage has largely focused on Confederations Cup soccer tournament.
    I believe the film range from 10 to 20 million dollars.

    This is excellent news!

    Does this $3.1m figure include the previews from the previous 4 weeks? If so I think it will be toward the lower end of your prediction but hopefully it finishes at the higher end! 5x-10x increase over ST09!

    I don't think so.
    Site Box Office is clear. "The film is already 70% ahead of its predecessor's Brazilian cume after a splendid $3.1 million opening weekend in Brazil"

    STID opened on june 14th (friday).

    On boxofficemojo there are 4 weeks of previews totalling 0.88m. It could be that the 3.1m includes those previews. We will find out when BOM publishes the weekend chart.

    It had the least decline among holdover movies, when considering it lost over 800 theaters (only "Now you see me" had a smaller decline but that one added theaters)

    That's a great hold for STID... should make $235 million domestically.
