Lets see some common films that release in the summer. Meaning Summer Blockbusters

Eg 1: Fantastic Four: Not your top rated comic heroes but average ones with a dedicated fan base, Top notch actors [Only for Jessica Alba ] and numerous CGI effects. Star Trek has a lot in common with F4 in terms of box office features

Production Budget 130 million
Earnings Totally 289 million
Ratio of Domestic/Foreign : 45/54

Eg: Mummy 3
Production Budget 145 million
Earnings Totally 392 million
Ratio of Domestic/Foreign : 26/73

This movie made a poor 100 million in America yet its box office gold!!!!!!!!

JJ is smart, he is building the ST franchise to appeal to foreign audiences. And the box office shows that it might be a fickle audience but a high paying one at that. May release will give a good exposure to the main market in the US, i only fear the worsening crisis in the US will dampen the numbers.

Ehm, are those numbers inflation-adjusted? If you compare a '94 to a '09 movie, fiveteen years of 2-4% inflation make up quite a difference.
I don't own Paramount stocks, so I rather care about whether I'll like this movie instead of how much money it'll make

wise thinking my friend,as for the movie i would estimate a 400 million $ closure,good enough to guarante a sequel
