    They probably just gave up and illegally downloaded it due to frustration because it took so long to come out.

    Same as me... LOL :lol:

    Paramount seems to have forgotten that we live in the age of the internet. A lot of us can just watch everything and more online.

    And that's probably why they did this.

    Same here. I just don't want to hear Paramount whine about piracy when they pull this stuff.

    Yes, but what has any of that to do with the box-office figures for... anywhere?

    Edit: The above post and subsequent posts replying to it have been moved to the appropriate thread.

    I think the Japan Box office is solid so far and it could treble or quadruple that opening which would be excellent imho.

    As far as marketing goes, it's been discussed but it wasn't particularly good. I really really enjoyed the movie, but went in fearing the worst because outside of the Vengeance/Enterprise poster, it made it look a bit crap.

    Mentally? . . . that's debatable.
    It will probably do 5-7 times its opening weekend numbers. However its opening weekend (weekends in Japan are just Sat and Sun because most movies open on Sat) was only $2 million. The 4.2 million people are quoting is acutally Fri-Sat plus the previous weekends preview weekend (Fri-Sat). So 4.2 is a 6 day total of two weekends. There is virtually no way STID can quadruple that number. To even treble it would mean it has great legs.

    It will probably end up $11-12 million with a floor of around $9mil and a ceiling in the $14-15 range. Pacific Rim (another Hollywood Sci-Fi flick) opened around $2.1 million for its opening weekend and after 3 weeks has just under $12 million total. PR also had the benefit of a holiday in its first week.

    The Japanese box office will be about a $10 million boost to STID's box office totals. It was never expected to be more than that. STID has not been a box office smash overseas. It has performed about average, maybe a little above. Oblivion and After Earth both made close to $200 mil overseas despite making a third to a quarter of what STID did domestically. STID is going to end up being very similar to Oz The Great and Powerful in both domestic and overseas numbers (about $7 million below domestically and $25 million less overseas).

    Looks like STID is re-releasing in IMAX next week here in Singapore.
    Wonder if there are re-releases in other places.

    here in usa they are doing a double feature of WorldWarZ and Into Darkness with a special ticket price. I am not sure if it is imax or some other format. I think it is more for the benefit of WorldWarZ than trek but certainly helps all round. They are not going to turn down more money.

    Another big week for a movie that's been out 3 months. STID moved up to $234 million (+$2.7 million this week) internationally and from $227.424 to $228.261 million...a 671% increase with the added theaters, bringing it up to $462 million worldwide.

    Aug 30–Sep 1$820,000
    +671% 958 +814 $856 $228,261,000
    (Estimate)

    They are smart people, they knew the movie wasn't going to be as good as TWOK.

    Most of them have likely never seen The Wrath of Khan. Just because Trek fans are OCD about it doesn't mean general audiences are. :rolleyes:

    I see they did a 60/40 split with World War Z instead of 50/50. Well, that's fine. They were determined to get World War Z to 200 million, by hook or by crook.
