    Also bear in mind that the difference in gross for the same number of days is because the opening day for STID was unplanned and only with about 300 theatres.

    The limited release from the night before the full opening day doesn't count as one of the days in release. It's rolled into the following opening day. That's the case for both Star Trek and STiD. Box Office Mojo is comparing the same number of full days in release between the two.

    I agree that comparison based on number of days in release is kind of silly in this case. That's why the boxoffice numbers I listed is not based on that. These are numbers each movie had done before the start of the 4th weekend in release (before the 4th Friday in release).

    Ok, I was refering to BoxOfficeMojo's comparisons, then. After 18 days, it claimed it only made 181 million, which looking at the daily grosses means they keep the first day apart from the second.

    It had made $181 million after 18 full days in release. The $2 million from Wednesday night isn't counted as a separate day in release. It's rolled into the Thursday opening day. Thursday the 16th May to Sunday the 2nd June is 18 days in release.

    Likewise, the $4 million Star Trek made from its Thursday night sneaks aren't counted as a day in release for the comparison purposes. It's rolled into the Friday opening day. Star Trek's first 18 days in release are from Friday the 8th May 2009 to Monday the 25th May 2009. The different release pattern will inevitably skew the comparison.

    Box Office Mojo lists the Wednesday and Thursday night sneaks respectively on the dailly numbers page for the two films, but for the purposes of comparing them after X number of days in release neither of those count as a day in release.

    Yes. So the real 50th anniversary is actually next year, 2014. In 2016, it will be 52

    Thank God for DVD (and Blu ray). I barely ever watch shows, on television, anymore. It's almost always DVD. I don't miss having to stay up til the wee hours, falling asleep during VOY, DS9, or ENT. We didn't get Endgame til 2005 here, four years after the US.

    I now have all Star Trek series and movies on DVD to watch at my leisure. That's one thing about them making a new Trek series, it would be absolutely buried in the schedules here. I'd have to wait for the DVD.

    Even shows like Lost, Buffy, and Angel, were hard to watch here, as they were buried in the post-10.30 pm slot

    But that's because TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT were presold to international home video markets in order for Paramount/Viacom to be able to afford to make each series. There was a "12-month video holdback" on commercial airings on free-to-air TV.

    "Endgame" was available for rent in Australian video stores not that long after the official US airing, and the two-eps-per-package sell-through VHS tapes for Pal Region 4 were sold in places like Myer, Big W and the specialist book stores. In some cases the episodes were out in the shops before my US penpals could post me a compilation off-air tape.

    True. They were on video. However, I was still a teen during most of Voyager's run, so I didn't have any money to buy the tapes :lol: Than god for having DVDs, and a disposable income :techman::

    It was an EPIC day when Endgame was released in the video store. I remember reserving it to borrow before it came in even though there was zero rush on it :lol:

    The Friday number for Star Trek appears to be around 3.2m so hopefully we are going to get around $11m this weekend. ST09 did $12.6m.

    Man of Steel takes away IMAX Next weekend so the drop will be very big for Trek.

    In china trek is at $34m as of Wednesday. South Korea will see a big drop because apparently the biggest movie of all time in SK was released this week (a local movie).

    have there been recent statements from the studio about the film's box office performance? Are they expressing disappointment, satisfaction,?

    They're projecting $490 million. I think they're very happy.

    A quick Google only turns up media release reactions to opening weekends around the world. Satisfied is the common comment. Nothing official since.

    Last time (2009), I recall a different media release popping up when Paramount/CBS commented upon the huge spike in sales for ST DVDs due to the first Bad Robot film - not just TOS, but all ST DVDs.
