on May 19, 2013
Sunday Update: Star Trek Into Darkness grossed $40 million across 40 territories this weekend to bring its overseas cume to $80.5 million. Combined with the film's $86.4 million opening weekend in North America, the Star Trek sequel's global cume currently stands at $164.5 million. IMAX screenings account for $20 million of the film's current global total.
The openings in Russia ($8M) and Taiwan ($1.7M) were the most notable new markets for the sci-fi sequel. The $80.5 million overseas cume is already 80% better in the same number of foreign markets than the film's predecessor during the same time-period. Star Trek's biggest cumulative markets include the U.K. ($24M), Germany ($12.5M), Australia ($10M), and Mexico ($5.6M). The film will open in major markets like China, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, Italy, Spain, and France in the coming weeks.
Saturday Update: A softer-than-expected Fri-Sun North American haul means that it will take Star Trek Into Darkness more time to hit the $200 million global milestone. The film opened in 33 new markets this weekend, including Russia. Russia is estimated to earn $9M for the weekend, which is 400% of the gross of the last film in that market. The film's estimated gross is $35M for the weekend and the projected overseas cume through Sunday is $75M.
Friday Update #2: Star Trek Into Darkness is off and running at the box office. With estimates approaching $100 million in four days of release in North America combined with $47 million in overseas box office reported already, the sci-fi flick is quickly making its way to the $200 million global plateau.
Friday Update: Paramount reports that Star Trek Into Darkness has $47 million in the bank overseas thru Thursday. Combined with the $13.5 million North AMerican haul, Into Darkness is now sitting pretty at $60.5 million globally.
Thursday Update: Star Trek Into Darkness opened in seven overseas markets this past weekend, earning $40 million thru Wednesday. According to Paramount, the combined figures from these territories are almost 70% greater than 2009's Star Trekfrom the same territories (UK, Australia, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, Austria and German speaking Switzerland). 33 new markets, lead by Russia, will open this weekend.
