You should get that growth on you left arm checked.
The crowd was big enough that by the time I got there, the posters were all gone! I enjoyed the movie even more the second time. Tuesday will likely be my final time Imax or otherwise.
Well in terms UK takings the best figure I could find was upto the end of the 2nd weekend. With a UK taking of GB£15.5m which is something like US$23m or around 2/3rds of ST (2009) UK Box Office haul.
The good news is that STID is making more overseas compared to ST09. Paramount will look at this when they consider a sequel.
I must admit, though, I find it frustrating seeing this movie limp along to 200 million, when films like Iron Man 3 almost effortlessly swoop ahead to over 1 billion worldwide.
I realise Trek is more of a cult success than a bonafide box office sensation, but still it is frustrating.
I think the final overseas take will be significantly better than Trek 09, which is great news.
I know how you feel, it is indeed frustrating...
On the other hand, I was watching Nemesis in the theatre in 2002, and even though I do like the film, I remember feeling like: man, this film feels so small, so low-budget, it's no wonder a film like this will never make 200 million like so many blockbusters at the time... If someone had told me back than that in 7 years, ST would be back with 150-190 million budget films, making 200+ million in the US, etc., etc., I would not have believed it...
Yes, the TNG movies were done on the cheap. They were like elongated TV episodes, for the most part. They cut a lot of corners. I'm glad we now have Trek as a serious box office entity, with huge budgets.
From ERC on Twitter:
So where does the 4 day weekend estimates leave ST?
Does anyone have saturday's estimate?
So far the early estimates are $47 million for the 4 day weekend. Hopefully more numbers later today.

From BoxOffice.com on Twitter:
With this second weekend hold I think STiD could end up at $225-235 million domestic, maybe $240 million at a push, depending on how strong the third weekend is.
My friends trekkers. We are on the second weekend of STID premiere in IMAX/3D in Brazil. More than 20 theatres, all crowded, I repeat, all crowded. Completely successful. Paramount found that there are many Brazilians who love the franchise (a little late). I am very happy. I belive the box office will reach 200% increase. The movie realese in 2D format day 14th june.
Agreed. However is that foreign number for all of the markets it is in release or for a handful. Seems a little low given how it did last week.
Nevermind... I just noticed it has only been released in 15 overseas markets and most of those are in their 3rd week of release. Number of big countries still to come up.
From Box Office Mojo:
Friday - $10,001,000
Saturday - $14,420,000
Sunday - $13,579,000
According to the estimates STiD was a very close #3 on Saturday and went up to #2 on Sunday.
Does anyone know if STID was shown or even filmed in that new format that the Hobbit was filmed in? I think its called High Frame Rate.
Hmm disappointing overseas number. Good to hear its doing much better in Brazil though and hopefully we can clear 200m overseas eventually.
Fast 6 did more worldwide this weekend then Star Trek has made so far. More people need to experience the awesomeness of Star Trek than some car chase thing!
Oh my. This is going to be #2 in the whole movie franchise, and it's a disappointment for some?
Not for me. Love the movie and if Paramount decides not to do a third, we went out on top.
Definitely wasn't filmed in HFR. 35mm and IMAX only.
