    Actually, if you look at the full weekend chart and check the theater counts, WWZ was in almost 300 more theaters overall than Trek. Only certain chains were showing the double feature.

    STID made the most on a Tuesday since July 17th. Up 392% from last week.

    Just saw the 9 pm show in IMAX in Singapore. About 15 people in the theatre, its a small theatre. Not terrible for an old movie on a Thursday night.

    Yes, that's what I meant. 1247 vs. 958.

    And Into Darkness exits stage left.... 800 theaters yanked out from under it.

    Hope the Japan numbers gave it a nice boost.

    With ST09 there was a press release a week or so later that said 5.7 million sold, so I think we should get something saying about 2 million sold this time because the sales of BR/DVD are dropping every year.

    Then in a few months they will be on the-numbers.com

    2016 100% (there's no way they WOULDN'T release it in the year that's the 50tyh anniversary of the debut of TOS on NPC.)

    If they don't release in that timeframe, someone at marketing/promotion will get fired. ;)

    ST09 sold about 8 million DVD units and 3.9 million bluray units.

    I can't imagine coming out three months later helped it out in Japan any.

    I bet Abrams is really regretting that he didn't take my advice and have the Cloverfield monster wreck San Francisco instead of the Vengeance in the Japanese release right about now.

    Seriously though, as said, opening over three months later? I bet most die hard Trekkies in Japan found alternate means of viewing it by then. Of course, that can't account for its failure completely since non-fans obviously weren't interested, but it couldn't have helped, either.

    It'll probalby beat ST09's Japanese gross by 100%. Not too shabby

    How much did 09 make in Japan? As long as it's an improvement it's not quite a bomb.

    $9 million US in three weeks is bombing there? That's just short of double Star Trek 2009's take for five weeks.

    One of the negative reviews cited seems mostly to fault the movie for not being TMP. Another boils down to "Captain Kirk is an a$$hole" and "even the Japanese subtitles didn’t tell the story correctly."
