FAST & FURIOUS 6 Cars, STAR TREK Spaceship Pass $200 Million Box Office

Fast and Furious 6 Cars Vin DieselFast & Furious 6 cars, Star Trek into Darkness spaceship pass $200 million milestone at North America box office

According to weekend box office studio estimates released Sunday morning (June 9), two blockbusters passed the $200 million milestone in North America this past weekend: Justin Lin's actioner Fast & Furious 6, starring fast and furious cars, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, and Vin Diesel, and J.J. Abrams' Star Trek into Darkness, starring the star-trekking spaceship Enterprise, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch. However, box office actuals released on Monday revealed that Star Trek into Darkness studio Paramount had been a bit too optimistic.

At no. 2 this past weekend, Fast & Furious 6 added $19.62 million (down 44 percent), cuming at $202.81 million according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. Including Monday figures, the worldwide cume for the $160 million-budgeted sixth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise is an estimated $586.66 million. Back in 2011, Fast Five cumed with $209.83 million in the U.S. and Canada and $626.13 million worldwide. Fast & Furious 6 will be able to beat both figures before its box office run is over.

According to the most recent Box Office Mojo updates (June 9), Fast & Furious 6 top international markets are the UK with $35.34 million, Mexico with $31.53 million, Russia / CIS with $28.58 million (as of June 2), Germany with $24.98 million, France with $21.5 million, and Brazil with $18.43 million.

Star Trek into Darkness box office: $200 million a day later

After adding $11.42 million (down 32 percent) at no. 6 on the domestic box office chart, the $190 million-budgeted Star Trek into Darkness reached $199.86 million on Sunday – slightly short of the $200 million milestone. Needless to say, that milestone was passed on Monday, when J.J. Abrams' sci-fier reached $201.2 million. Star Trek into Darkness passed $200 million on Day 26, whereas Fast & Furious 6 reached that milestone on Day 17.

The worldwide cume for the Star Trek sequel currently stands at $377.6 million. Back in 2009, Star Trek (without the advantage of 3D surcharges) cumed with $257.73 million in the U.S. and Canada and $385.68 million worldwide. The good news: Star Trek into Darkness will easily surpass the original at the worldwide box office. The not-so-good news: Star Trek into Darkness may lack enough stamina to surpass the original at the domestic box office, and will likely trail Star Trek by a wide margin in actual number of tickets sold.

By far, Star Trek into Darkness' biggest international market is the UK with $37.14 million, followed by China with $25.87 million, Germany with $19.34 million, Australia with $14.62 million, and Russia / CIS with $10.21 million. Star Trek into Darkness has yet to open in Brazil, France, and Japan.
