That's likely true.
I think 7 million was really good. 10 million in that time would have been better but that was limited release. Typical movies that blow the box office away do 150 million in a week end. 50 million a day.

Wolverine did 87 which is 29 million a day. I just estimate 20 million a day.

I would estimate the theatre I was in to be about 85% full. But yes, it was a Thursday night, and the Thursday release was not well advertized. The only reason I knew that the cinema here was doing the Thursday show was because it was printed on a piece of paper taped to the box office window (note: it is obvious that the cinema here does not have a color printer).

Don't forget about Titanic..(not implying Trek will ever come that close with 600 Mil), Titanic didn't have a whopping first weekend...about 33 mil, however, it got better as the weekends went by. First weekend i wouldn't put much stock in...it is usually word of mouth that makes or brakes it by the 2nd weekend.

One note to add: don't gauge TREK's performance solely on whether or not your theater was sold out. It's playing in a LARGE number of theaters, which makes selling out individual shows harder -- especially on off-peak days or screening times.

Thursday evenings would be hard to sell out by any film, it's just not a big moviegoing night.

I know my screening tonight is sold out, and while others in different screens aren't yet sold out, most seem to have very few seats available. 95% capacity may not be sold out, but if you can do that for thousands of screens all weekend long, those will be good numbers.
