    BoxOffice.com is reporting $261,552,337 worldwide gross as of 28th.

    The film opened in China with 25m CNY on its opening day (that's $4.04 million. The total Chinese box office for the same day was 11 million, so STID took a sizeable percentage.) The Chinese are predicting it will take in $25m in the first week.

    For more information on the Chinese box office, see: http://yule.sohu.com/20130529/n377364553.shtml

    They might, because there will be a Star Wars movie in the summer of 2016. It's been widely reported that there will be one each year starting 2015.

    I'm still sticking with a $18-20 Million Sat-Su,. mainly because there are no "must-see" releases and Epic and TH3 are not much competition, and STID's word of mouth is winning the day.

    Star Trek made $17 million on the Sat-Sun of its third weekend, and that was with the inflated business of Memorial Day weekend. $18-20 million for Sat-Sun for STiD on a regular weekend would be a Herculean task. I think it'll make $18-21 million for the full Friday-to-Sunday weekend.

    I don't think a trend upwards is impossible, so far After Earth is 17% fresh. The scifi fans will go see STID.

    It hasn't been updated much, but the actual total right now would be around $275 million.

    Thanks for that link--it's a good read, aside from all those chicken scratches! :p

    But good news, because that'll be 4 times the 2009 take, I think.

    The sci-fi fans have already seen STID.

    All right then, the curious general public moviegoer after realizing Hangover and After Earth are turds, and the Trek film is fresh.

    STiD will continue to draw good business, but $21 million for this weekend, maybe $22 million at a push, is the upper range of what it'll make.

    "After Earth" has been getting absolutely terrible reviews. It might open okay, but it's going to collapse hard after the first weekend.

    I think will limp to 250m with a final total of 450m WW, a disappointment but better than what we thought after the bad first weekend.

    Well as a ScFi fan and a long time trek fan, I still haven't seen it. Too much other stuff at the end of the kids school year. We'll try to see it this weekend.

    I keep hearing good word of mouth from non-trek folks in person and facebook. I think this weekend end might bring a bump

    Then I beat you last time around (saw ST09 seven, yes, seven times at the theater).

    This one I've seen three times but the fourth is coming up this weekend with another non-Trekkie friend and her husband who want to "drag" me to it ;)

    My friend Michelle and I contributed two $13 tickets opening night ... though actually paid less than that through a Fandango gift card deal :)

    I'm hoping to go again this weekend, after I get over this cold.
