    I doubt all Bad Robots top people will be all working on Star Wars. I'm sure the company has a lot of good people that will be working on Star Trek, likely some will work on both.

    Plus if Paramount thought that Star Trek was not getting the attention it needed, I'm sure the relationship with Bad Robot would come to an abrupt end.

    I hadn't thought of that. I assume Abrams will be utilising most of his usual collaborators on Episode VII. I do hope some of Bad Robot's main talent will stay involved with Trek XIII. Orci and Kurtzman will still write, I assume. Lindelof's out. I think he's developing a new movie or series. Michael Arndt is writing Star Wars episode VII.

    That's nice, but you really don't have a clue what you're talking about here.

    Do you have a list of those at Bad Robot, other than Abrams, who are "going to Star Wars?"

    Bad Robot will produce a Star Trek film for Paramount to be released in 2016. It's that simple. :cool:

    Brannon Braga deserves a lot of credit (along with Ronald D. Moore) for writing Star Trek: First Contact and Enterprise. However, a quick glance at the IDW comic which he wrote, 'Star Trek TNG: Hive', is enough to convince me that Abrams and co were the right people for the reboot.

    If anyone wants to dig a little deeper into 'Hive', see this review: http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2013/03/comic-book-review-star-trek-next.html

    Absolutely, mind-numbingly awful!

    Continuing the trend, it looks like STiD could beat 09 in China by 400-500 percent

    Tuesdy numbers

    Trek also made $2.7m in China today as well. No idea if that is good or bad so let's assume good :)

    Maybe we will get a $20-30m dollar overseas week?

    According to BOM, Star Trek '09 made 8.6M total in China, so I would say that is very good.

    It's exciting to see it do so well in China! It's like we're seeing some kind of history being made.

    OK. So we are at $102,100,000 overseas at the moment.

    If I add all of Star Trek 2009 totals from the countries STID is yet to open in + $35m from CHINA (Might not get that much, but lets be optimistic!)

    $102m is the total so far.
    $30m to come from those countries that have already opened (guess, might be way off)
    $35m from CHINA (might happen now!)
    $35m from countries yet to open, at ST09 levels.

    $202m total​

    ---------------

    Now lets assume the gross from the other opening countries excluding China increases from ST09 by:

    30% increase = $45m - $212m Total
    50% increase = $52m - $219m
    80% increase = $62m - $229m
    100% increase = $70m - $237m​

    So I think at the moment the range for the overseas total is between $195-$240m and WW total of between $415-$480m

    Also I believe the marketing in SE Asia focuses more on Benedict Cumberbatch. If Trek makes big $$$ from SE Asia I bet Cumberbatch will be back in the next one.

    Sophisticated British men are a "thing" for Korean and Japanese women in the same way "tall, dark, and handsome" is in the US. I have no doubt Cumby has initiated a few "squwees!" here and there.

    OK, finally saw the movie and contributed my $17 to the boxoffice totals (damn, the movie prices are getting high!). Hell of a movie though.

    I would agree that US$30m more from the countries it has already opened in is low.

    i.e. Box Office Mojo figure for the UK = US$12.95m

    UK Box office upto the 26th May = GB£19.42m = US$29.1m Which means the UK alone will have added something like US$17m
