The Star Trek revamp was huge in the US but made just $128 million overseas. Compare those numbers to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which also hit that year and actually made more internationally with $434 million compared to $402 million here in the U.S.
Paramount are hoping to change that when Star Trek 2 is released - the premier iMax tickets have already sold out. However there is some fan dissent across the message boards with many feeling that the trailers released so far suggest an all action Star Trek, with the cerebral aspects that gave Star Trek its strengths ignored in an attempt to appeal to action movie fans. One fan even called Star Trek 2, Die Hard in space.
Paramount are so determined to boost overseas sales that Star Trek 2 will be released in most overseas markets a full week before the US.
