Here is a guess as to what I think the box office take will be for 'STXII.'


 


Opening Weekend: $95,520,000


 


Domestic:  $272,000,000


+ Foreign: $146,000,000


= Worldwide: $418,000,000


 


What are your thoughts?

"Truly, these times of ignorance GOD overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because HE has appointed a day on which HE will judge the world in righteousness by the MAN (LORD JESUS CHRIST) whom HE has ordained. HE has given assurance of this to all by raising HIM from the dead." [Acts 17:30-31] http://www.intouch.org/god

Let's put it this way:
If PARAMOUNT gives EVERY cent
it makes off of INTO THE DARKNESS
to Uncle Sam - the national debt
is as good as paid off!!!
This movie looks damn G00D!!!


My friends ... STAR TREK is BACK!!!

I don't know...but if the movie is half as good as the latest trailer...it will be at least a critical success.  I think it's gonna to make Abrams and Paramount plenty.  I can't wait to see it.

We have one dollar...


do I hear two?


I think this movie will actually do very well, as it takes a much darker take than before, and might be more serious, in a similar tone to Wrath of Khan, though with a little more of a modern commentary, similar to TOS. It could be interesting

well, the first one made a lot of money, so it's likely that the second one will also make a lot of money. Probably slightly less than the first one as sequels usually do, but it will still likely be a tremendous amount of money


 


I still have aboslutel zero interest in seeing it though. The trailers are completely putting me off. And I didn't really like the first one either

I think domestically, it will probably do about the same as the last film did (around $260m). As much as I'd love to think it will do more, I don't think it will. The last film was almost universally praised by critics AND it has the allure of being the first of it's kind (the first "alternate reality" reboot with the original characters) as a draw. This is a sequel, and rarely do sequels perform better than an original.


That said, I think the foreign box office numbers will improve. Paramount has been doing a concentrated effort to market this film over-seas. The addition of Cumberbatch and plot elements that include London as a major location could certainly help that. So, they made $128m overseas with the 2009 film. I'd like to think they can break the $200m barrier this time around because of all the effort they've put into international marketing.


 


So, I'd like to see a $460m total box-office take.

That's disappointing to hear from a fan. Not liking something you've gone to see is one thing. Assuming you're not going to like it and not going out to try it yourself is another.


The last movie was fun and engaging. I'm not sure what's "not to like" if you are a fan.

A jillion flabaquillion!


I'm on the fence about how much to expect. I think it will definitely be a pre-summer blockbuster. Like others have pointed out, sequels tend to make less money. Memory Alpha's breakdown of each ST film's gross proves this to be true: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek_films


However, I think STID could possibly do better if the story is better. As much as I enjoyed ST09, the story itself was kinda lame. But it was fresh, different yet familiar and set a new course for the Enterprise crew. If STID turns out to be just another 'splosions, lens flares, REVENGE caper, then I predict it will make a crapton of money the first 2 weeks then fall off. If the story resonates, then it may equal or pass ST09's gross in the US.


STID has to compete with Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, Fast and Furious 6, The Hangover III AND After Earth.

ST09:





Domestic:
 $257,730,019
   66.8%


Foreign:
 $127,950,427

   33.2%






I think STID will push 300 million stateside and break 150 million overseas.



I just found this great Star Trek MB!!  photo ac1685424929087bf1b7e7e0d734f861.jpg

I am a huge fan, I just didn't like the movie that much. I even watched it more than once and I just didn't like it. That's just my opinion.


I'm "assuming" I'm not going to like the next one because a) I didn't like the first one. Just like any other movie, if I didn't care for the first movie I'm not going to have an interest in the sequel. b) the trailers are doing nothing to make me want to see the movie. Just like with other movies if the trailer seems appealing to me I wll have an interest in seeing the movie. If it doesn't, then I don't


I won't love a movie simply because it has the words "Star" and "Trek" in the title.

Why oh why do they keep making Fast and Furious movies? The first one was boring enough...


Ok, I know. 'cos they make money.


 


haha


 


Was of course just kidding about the $1 sales. I think it will do pretty well -- certainly I don't think it will flop -- but honestly I'm personally more concerned with whether it is a watchable movie or not. (There will be a DVD etc. regardless of sales at the box office.)

Judging by the latest trailer...this one looks to be better than the first.  I wasn't that impressed with the villain Nero nor the confusing timeline change that went along with it.


I think this one is straight forward with the theme of terrorism and will be dark but entertaining.  Cumberpatch has me sold as a villain...and I truly believe that it will be a critical and box office success.  The Spock dying angle is intriging.  Was that him that lept off the building at the end of the latest movie trailer???  If he dies...I suspect Abrams will keep him so and none of that Vulcan Katre angle coming into focus.


I know it's a little on the ridiculous side for these Star Trek characters to acheive seemingly overnight leaps of experience to run a starship...at least judging by the last film...and what I don't know the passage of time that takes place to this second film...but Abrams has to speed his pace along given the four year interval between films.


In any event...I can't wait for this sequel...it looks to me that it has grand slam home run potential.
