So that's our official target number? $160 in 4 days?

I think that may be overly optimistic but I really hope I'm pleasantly surprised! It's certainly not impossible with the way online ticket sales seem to be going. (man I wish we had sales figures!)

I assume ticket sales are based on when it is shown correct? So if someone buys a ticket today for next Friday it wont show on this weeks figures?

If Wolverine got $87mil this fast, there's guarenteed to be another trek movie given the support ratios for wolverine vs star trek, star trek will pay for itself on opening night

I'll be seeing it on Saturday but I'll be cloesly checking Box Office Mojo's estimates over the weekend. The opening day will give a good idea how the weekend will go for the film.

A report from AP predicted a $60million opening weekend. A respectable opening by any stretch.

From Variety.


"In terms of "Star Trek's" opening weekend gross, Par insiders are predicting $50 million to $60 million domestically. Rivals agree. Tracking shows younger demos less interested than adults, although the numbers are picking up for the under 18 crowd.
Advance ticket sales for domestic runs surged Tuesday, with 87 Imax shows alone selling out. Like several other recent films, “Star Trek” could outperform tracking."




If Paramount can accept 50 to 60 million than that's fine with me as well.


But I agree that it will open higher than that.
Just a wild guess here, but I predict between 67 to 74 million OW.
