Weekly Anticipation Index (March 14, 2009): 'Star Trek'

Featured Stories - on March 13, 2009 by Phil Contrino

BOXOFFICE has placed a certain new sci-fi flick on its list of financial predictions for upcoming films.


Trekkies rejoice! This week we've added the latest Star Trek film to B OXOFFICE.com's Weekly Anticipation Index.

While it's obvious that Trek has a very powerful built-in fan base, it's a tricky film to predict box office grosses for. Much like Watchmen needed to reach audiences that hadn't read to the original graphic novel to become a major success (obviously, it fell short of that goal), Trek will need to develop some new fans in order to compete in the crowded summer season. The fact that it's being released on the heels of X-Men Origins: Wolverine also will not help its case.

Looking at the last two Trek films, 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis opened with a mediocre $18 million ($22.9 million when adjusted for inflation) before finishing with $43.1 million domestically ($52.6 million when adjusted for inflation). 1998's Star Trek: Insurrection brought in $22 million during its debut frame ($33 million adjusted) and a domestic cume of $70.2 ($107 million adjusted). Then again, those two films don't provide the strongest base of comparison considering that they represented a decline in popularity for the series.

A better comparison seems to be 2005's Batman Begins since it was also a rebooting of a series in decline. Christopher Nolan's initial take on the Caped Crusader grossed $48.7 million during its opening frame ($54.3 million adjusted) before showing some serious staying power and bringing in $205 million domestically ($230 when adjusted) before the end of its theatrical run. The moral of the story is that if Trek delivers an experience that truly revitalizes the series, then fans both old and new could end up seeing it more than once. In a competitive summer season, repeat business is incredibly important.

As of right now, we're predicting a $55 million opening weekend with a $130 million cume for Star Trek. Check out the rest of our predictions below.

    There's no hotter sneaker on the market right now than the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost. Kanye West's latest design officially released in late-June, instantly sold out and is re-selling for no less than 5 times the retail price.Before Kanye inked a deal with adidas, sneakerheads didn't have much to be concerned with when it came to counterfeit 3-Stripe branded product. But that all changed with Yeezys, and the 350 is one of the most reproduced adidas shoes to date.https://www.snkes.org/

    Star Trek: Nemesis' Almost Directly Followed By 'The Dark Knight'. A research release from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), reports that 'Star Trek: Nemesis' sold a significant number of tickets in the U.S. during its first weekend, leading to 17.6 million total units sold for a total box office revenue of $84.7 million. The film performed better than 'Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,' with total domestic box office revenue of $120.6 million. The film's wide opening in the U.S. on Friday ($28.8 million) and subsequent weekend gross ($42.1 million) has likely sparked an upswing in interest from mainstream moviegoers.
