Bad Chinese movie people! Bad! That's naughty!
To get ahead in business, always owe people money.
That sounds like a rule of acquisition
A contract is a contract is a contract, but only between Chinese.
IT seems that the movie here hasn't done very well...
1- There was only one billboard in caracas for the movie
2- The only publicity was on a video -billboard with a very quick and choppy video (10 secs max).
3- By today (Beggining of the second week) Its cinema venues has been reduced by 2/3.
4- No tv adds anywhere.
Anyway I've never had any hopes for the Venezuelan people as a whole, who flock in masses to see "The Smurfs 2: the sequel you NEVER wanted". After all this is the same people who elected Chavez and his "son" Nicolas Maduro.
Cumberbatch-san bids you go see STID
^That is awesome.
Holy crap--460K weekend, adding 120 theaters...! Hell of a death rattle there. Or does Japan enter into the picture?
Maybe Khan will be Buddhist in the next one.
Yeah..what happened here, its the most it's made in 3 weeks.
Japan jumps into the picture on August 23rd.
It was a good weekend here in Caracas, it seems that most of the middle class just went to the movies and most if not all cinemas were packed. Good reactions from the audience, excluding one or two fools.
STiD still had a good run at the box office, most sequels don't do as well as their original films, however some of this sequels were always better than the first films....empire sticks back, attacks of the clones and spider man 2 are good examples of films that were much better than their original films however did not earn as much at the box office.
I have a feeling that Trek 3 will be the big one..... STiD was kind of a hit and a miss for me. I surely hope the producers will correct all the mistakes they made in STiD.
Karl Urban wants an original story for the third film , that is a good start.
Here in Brazil, although popular mobilization, boxoffice increased from $ 1.9 M to $ 5.1 M. The Brazilian trekkers helped in social networks. The reaction was excellent. No-trekkers fans liked it and they want to see the next movie. Then we will have a larger audience in 2016. I was happy.
I have a feeling that STID was kind of Batman Begins. It brought theatre to the attention of a wide public. Star Trek 2009 offered something of interest for the general public, but it caused little impact.
But I agree with Urban. The public wants to see original stories, creative stories. But I think JJ. Abrams and cia like to recycle old stories.
Into Darkness still kicking! Epic Monday!
It certainly is - bigger daily pulls than Man of Steel and Fast & Furious 6 - very impressive
STID hit $225 million both domestically and internationally. Intl updated to $225. 3 million. Awaiting Japan!
It looks like Japan is gearing up for Trek (they've already been Cumberbatched). Check out this bookshop: http://muchadoaboutbenedict.tumblr....ookstore-in-japan-benedict-cumberbatch-galore
So what are they hoping to get from Japan?
"Paramount Pictures launched two strong tentpoles in Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z , which are on their way to nearly a billion dollars combined at the worldwide box office," he said. "The next quarter will show significant profitability for Paramount, including from these two films, but it will likely be moderately less than we anticipated due to the crowded tentpole schedule this summer and the delay of certain film licensing deals into next fiscal year."
He later added: "This summer had a particularly high volume of tentpole pictures from all the studios combined." Viacom hopes to drive tentpoles' success for a longer period of time, but the crowded release schedule "limited a lot of pictures, ours included," he added.
So, "strong" but "moderately less than we anticipated"
That's an extremely fair summation of STID's overall performance IMHO, and seems to have been the prevailing opinion on these boards for sometime - naysayers not withstanding.
