    STID has been growing on me. Or at least the first half hour. I've been watching it on youtube. Can't find the rest, though...

    I'm already surprised (in a good way) that the genre lasted as long as it did. 1999-2013 is a very long time for these things.

    But I agree, it's a safe bet for them until the market changes.

    Its almost non existant. The last trek movie which was shown on TV (not cable) was in 2000. And the last series also shown on local tv was ds9 in 1996.

    The last TREK movie made only $ 500.000. This time the premiere looked a lot fuller than last time - and it was the 3d version of the movie.

    Tonight I'm going for seconds and I might go for 3rds on Sunday :techman:

    Word of mouth is the main weapon here, as there is almost no publicity and Disney has the distribution rights here in Venezuela, so Star Trek is shadowed by "The Lone Ranger :rolleyes:" advertisements.

    Most of that was from showings at dollar theaters, though.

    Not a typo - it is usual in Spanish speaking countries to use . where we anglophones would use , as a seperator in large numbers.

    I'll echo that... it's still in the dollar theaters here BTW. Just think that STiD was a much better all around movie. OTOH Trek 09 was restarting a franchise, much like Casino Royale with James Bond, and more people were interested in the outcome - seemed as if just as many people wanting it to fail as to succeed.

    ^That's not strictly true you don't have to use a comma or a decimal place. I was taught you use a space i.e. 10 000, 1 000 000.

    Clancy_s did note that such was the custom in Spanish-speaking countries. (I suspect that the country in which you were taught to use a space is not one of these.)

    It would be cool if it gets an IMAX re-release in September like ST09 did. I may go see it a second time.

    Well more than spanish speaking countries, most of the world uses the dot (.) for thousands and the comma (,) for decimals.

    Star Trek (2009) Made only $ 568000

    Lets hope for more this time! :rommie:

    It surely has!!! :cool:

    Now is there any estimate on how much it will make in Japan?

    Will it double it previous take, just like in South Korea or will the Cumberbatchness take over the country?

    Taken from Boxofficemojo:

    Star Trek Into Darkness:

    Domestic: $225,607,743 50.1%
    + Foreign: $224,600,000 49.9%

    = Worldwide: $450,207,743

    I'm hoping STID can take the Japanese BO for at least 10 million. That is assuming the movie is not being pirated already.

    I think it will make at least 10 mill and in a very positive scenario it might lead up to 15 mill.

    but the welcome Japanese with Cumberbatch was very good. I was surprised to see so many people waiting for him. It looked like a pop star.

    If box office doesn´t get close to $20 million I'll be disappointed with them.

    Yeah there are a lot of Sherlock fans in Japan. So he's a big celebrity to them already. Hopes still high.

    "Hollywood studios have not been paid by the organisation which represents Chinese cinema distributors for a number of months, a period during which blockbusters such as Skyfall, Man of Steel and Star Trek Into Darkness have pulled in hundreds of millions of dollars at the local box office, according to the Hollywood Reporter."
