    I think the domestic gross will be around $210-220 million. The worldwide gross should be in the low to mid-400s. A budget level of around $150 million is fine for a franchise that can deliver that level of box office. A $180-190 million budget places a heavier burden on a film.

    This is one the best posts I've read regarding the subject. I agree with you 100%.

    Agree 100%. I do think there's a chance for $230-240 million, but that depends on how it holds up next week.

    As long as they don't have to completely rebuild sets and whatnot, that helps.

    Part of Trek's problem, imho, was the long lag time between films. Four years was way too long. This film should have been out last year.

    I know everyone is aiming for the 50th Anniversary, but perhaps Paramount should be counterintuitive and think what it can do to both cut costs and increase production schedule.

    I hope they put the sets in storage. One of the advantages of the old Stage 9 at Paramount was they always had a set they could go to.

    Excellent recovery if it holds, remember at this point it is just an estimate and the actual can go either up or down. (up! up! up! please ;) )

    The actual should be within $1-2 million of the estimate.

    The best we can hope for now, and certainly not dreadful. I hope it pans out.

    Trek has NEVER done great overseas, so any increase is a good thing. :)

    Could have done with a cartoon and solid toy line for the past 4 years. CBS probably said no.

    The audience for Star Trek in 2009 was 60% male and 65% over 25.

    ST09 OW Russia - $1.8m
    STID OW Russia - $8m :)

    ST09 OW Taiwan - $153k :wtf:
    STID OW Taiwan - $1.7m :)

    Looking good overseas. It will make up for lower NA and then some.

    I was 21 when ST09 debuted. Now I'm 25. Clearly there were plenty other 21-year-olds in 2009 who have all suffered similar fates. :P

    $80.5 million foreign is already 63% of the total foreign take in 2009.

    Well if the current trend of 80% higher continues it will get to $230m overseas. The wildcard is China. If China does well I think it would push that to $260m. Japan might do well? Cumberbatch was mobbed in Tokyo when he went to promote STID.
