STID London 20Star Trek Into Darkness is off to a high-flying start in the international market, a development that could forever alter the perception that Star Trek is solely a U.S. phenomenon. $13.3 million came from the U.K.’s 556 locations and reflects a 50% increase over the box office achieved by Star Trek in 2009. In Germany, the film earned $7.6 million from 627 locations which reflects an 80% improvement over 2009. Australia took in $5.5 million from its 263 locations (over 50% more than 2009) and Mexico earned $3 million from its 573 locations. These are the stats according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Paramount Pictures, Bad Robot, J.J. Abrams and much of his cast worked hard to ensure a strong international launch, as they posed at photocalls, met the press and walked the red carpet at premieres in Germany, Australia, England, Russia and Mexico in advance of the film opening in those markets.
