Star Trek Into Darkness outgrosses Star Trek (2009)

| June 17, 2013 | 0 Comments

It was announced today that Star Trek Into Darkness has now outgrossed its predecessor by almost $30 million. With a heavy push in territories outside the United States week before the movie was set to open here, Paramount seems to have succeeded in bringing in more money than the last JJ Abrams incarnation of the franchise.

While the movie is still $12 million behind the 2009 film in the United States, it’s projected that Star Trek Into Darkness could reach $450 million worldwide before it’s removed from theaters, with a possibility of $500 million if there’s a last-minute push.

Adjusting for inflation, the average ticket price in 2009 was $7.50, vs. $7.94 in 2013, according to Box Office Mojo. This would mean that approximately 51,914,357.7 people saw Star Trek Into Darkness, whereas 51,426,666.7 people saw Star Trek (2009). That puts the number of people that saw Star Trek Into Darkness at 500,000 more than Star Trek (2009).
