    Well it looks like STID is on course to return a proft from the cinema alone. Releastically it has 1 week left in the markets that have MoS opening next week. But STID into Darkness hasn't been released everywhere yet (and isn't set to continue to open in new markets through into August?)

    So may US$490m isn't out of the question

    DVD and BluRay should add quite well to the total in addition to whatever they get from rental and television.

    :guffaw:I love reading old comments sometimes. STID will not only reach but easily smash $200m. As for Paramount's $490m I still think thats a little on the over optimistic side but including DVD/Blu Ray on top of the Box Office I can see the gross being around $550-600 million.

    I expect the first DVD release might be huge. Remember "Nemesis", where so many US fans (and members of the general public) seemingly chose "Maid in Manhattan" on opening weekend, and fans spent months boasting online how they'd blackbanned "Nemesis"... but when the DVD came out, sales were way beyond expectations. Presumably all those people who'd denied themselves a cinema experience wanted to check it out after all, and as soon as they could.

    STiD may do the same domestically.

    I posted that :rommie: It was a possibility at the time but I am happy to be wrong of course :)

    OTOH I am sad that we didn't increase on ST09 and get to $300m!

    I regret missing the IMAX version, but I will probably still see it a second time before closing, maybe in 2D. I like the standard 3D but it is a little blurry. Superman opened at the local IMAX today.

    Star Trek Into Darkness made $11.7 million in its fourth weekend, dropping only 30% from the previous week. It's showing strong legs.

    Wonder how the 176.4 international figure stacks up against 09?

    Star Trek (2009) took a shade under US$128m in the rest of the world.

    Well 09 being what $127m total oversea's and Paramount has said it could go up to $290m though I think $250m is probably the highest it will go.

    From BoxOffice.com, more detail on this weekend's international take. Note the excellent hold in Korea.

    All good news!! STID will match ST09's WW 4 months of release total in about a month within a few days. Last week I said it would likely hit between $360-370 million by monday, but it has already surpassed that!
