    Star Trek's considered one of the May success stories right now.

    STID took fourth place in its fourth week, grossing an additional $2.9 million on its way to a $35 million total in the UK.

    STID made a solid landing in China, with the film grossing $25.8 million in its first six days on release.

    1.348.112 sold tickets for STID in Germany as of 2nd June. It's now officially more successful than ST (09) here.

    I wish we always had attendance numbers instead of or in addition to dollars. That way inflation wouldn't matter.

    For people who know more about it than I...

    If the numbers from China are out why aren't those numbers included on BOM? They have Hong Kong listed but not China.

    Those China numbers a HUGE! According to BOM the number from China was 8.5 million for the entire run.

    BOM keeps the foreign total up to date, but their updates for individual countries can lag behind by a matter of weeks.

    If inflation makes a difference when comparing ticket prices, then total population size, which also increases steadily over time, makes a difference when comparing attendance. Since I've been alive, the U.S. population has increased by over 50%!

    But not since 2009.
    Germany's population is shrinking - so: STID is even more successfulererer.

    Yeah but what I want to know is how many tickets were sold.

    True! Some countries do shrink! Even the total world population has shrunk at times in history. My bad.

    Anyway, my main point there is that population changes, as does the nominal value of currency.

    Big win for Trek in S. Korea

    Y'all should be pleased to know that Into Darkness trounced Will Smith's After Earth in South Korea. They opened head-to-head this weekend.

    http://www.boxoffice.com/latest-new...r-earth-flops-in-its-first-overseas-territory

    STID opened in first place with $3.76 million on the weekend; AE had a mere $2.1 million in third.

    Heck, STID even beat the second weekend of F&F 6 over there! :D

    STiD's Monday take: $1,632,233 for $183,169,614. Star Trek's comparable Monday was Memorial Day, so of course there's a big imbalance there.

    Looks like it'll top out at around 210-215, what with WWZ and Supes on the way.

    Are they basing their 100 million Man of Steel prediction based solely on the Batman movies doing well and the Marvel films doing well?

    The last Supes movie opened with 76 million and tanked sharply after people realized it was a terrible movie.

    I mean maybe that is enough to do it. It looks good, that's for sure.

    Which would mean hat the UK Box Office figure is only about US$250K below ST (2009) taking. So perhaps for the UK we are looking at a final figure of around US$40m.

    WWZ is going to make After Earth look like a world beater.

    The most recent trailer for Superman has made me somewhat excited for it. I wouldn't use the Marvel or Batman movies as barometers for its success though. A lot of people view Superman as hokey and out of date but enjoy the Marvel and Batman stuff.

    Well the studio might be hoping that the fact that Nolan is invovled with MoS might provide a bump. In the end only time will tell, still it looks interesting.
