In terms of worldwide gross, Into Darkness had made something like $50 million more than the '09 movie the last time I looked. I don't have any idea how significant that is, but as I recall increasing the international take was one of their goals. Star Trek as a franchise has never done well in international markets. So maybe clearing 200 million international is a salve for the less than spectacular domestic take.
