How much has it made worldwide?
$257.927 million with the latest estimates. That'll be revised a little when the actuals come out.
Is that higher or lower than 2009?
Overall that's lower, but the film is only two weeks into its release.. I would suspect it's box office take is higher than Trek 2009's was at the same point in its release cycle.
so 21 to come though China was not on that list.
Here are the release dates from Paramount's site. 28th May is the Chinese release date.
Anyone know why they didn't they release Trek on the same date worldwide?
Worldwide the total is much higher than at the same point of ST09's run.
No movie does that.
Tomorrow is my last go round for STID, unless someone else bugs me to go see it. There will be 4 of us total. OK Paramount, you've had plenty from me.
Today was my 4th time seeing it, went with my folks. Theater was very close to being sold out. I do know that F&F 6 was sold out.
After the same number of days in release Star Trek '09 had made $155.5 million domestic and $70 million international (from 57 markets) for a total of $225.5 million worldwide.
I think you're right.
But is it the kind of attention you want garnered...
Perhaps not in tickets but ...
1. they'll get a bunch of free publicity from newspaper articles pointing out "50 years of Star Trek marked with a new film yadda yadda..."
2. they can profit from other companies using this anniversary to flog their products, and advertise ST at the same time as well, "Coca Cola celebrates 50 years of Star Trek" and such...
3. also it's easier to sell the back-catalogue if you have a new shiny thing in the display that everyone is talking about, both syndication rights and box sets are more likely to fly out of the shops.
And I'm sure corporate minds will find other ways of profiting from it as well...
2016 is pretty much a lock for the next one.
The franchise is split at the moment, between CBS and Paramount, but a success of a new movie is a success for the whole franchise. Trek 09 saw boxsets for all the other series sell like hotcakes. I was hoping this movie would do the same. I already have all Trek shows and movies on DVD, but I double dipped on a few of them, on Blu ray, when ID came out, my interest in the franchise rejuvenated. And of course, the DVD retailers have tons of Star Trek stock in, at the moment.
2016 is as long as we should have to wait anyway.
Then you should have remember that when posting another of your pro-nuTrek comments in the TOS forum:
Agendas are easy to spot, guy.
