Help Into Darkness
 
I've been telling all my friends, family members and coworkers to go see STID. I want the movie to be as big a success as it can be and I know every little bit helps. So I implore you my friends on this board to spread the gospel of Trek and encourage those you know to go see the movie.

Iron Man 3 and Gatsby are strong competition atm, and with another Hangover movie coming out next week things will get tougher. While Hangover 2 was the exact same movie as Hangover 1, they both made $500 million. People would spend money on garbage they've seen before. Just look at how Kung Fu Panda 2 did when it competed against Hangover 2.

Most of the people I've encountered who were resistent about seeing the movie lobbed they think it's nerdy or couldn't get into it back in the 90's when it was on UPN. I sell it to them as Mission Impossible meets Star Trek. It's totally worth the price of admission. Use what other tactics you think could sway non-trekkers.

I'm going to see it again this weekend. I'm also going to see FF6.

I'm not worried.

Im going to see it again. I admire your sentiment, but the word of mouth is out there, people just have to go see it.

I saw it twice already with different friends. Seeing it again this weekend with some of my co-workers.

I have zero interest in Fast Cars 6, and we got so drunk we forgot what we did 3.

I've also seen it twice. And I spent an additional $100+ on TNG blurays and the new Star Trek game this past weekend. If I try to go see it again so soon, I may very well be sleeping in the garage.

I am going to see it again, probably a few times but I want to pace myself by waiting a while between viewings. Like with a good new song, over exposure can lead to early burnout.

Saw it in IMAX 3D last night/this morning in fact. Planning to push my local friends to see it, as I'd like to see it again, though I imagine it might be a bit of a letdown on a normal screen...or in 2D. We'll see!

I've now seen it four times and I will see it some more times. This is the first time I've gone by myself.

I've told EVERYONE to see it.. but people don't do what I say because they are fail.

Ditto :). F&F is guilty pleasure.

I have heard that, while it's #1 at the box office this week, it made $20 million less than hoped, and the word "disappointment" is being used by some in the industry.

If no Star Trek 3 is made, I wonder what this couldnother mean for the future of Star Trek? I mean, I expect to see someone try to revive it again...someday...but not for a decade or more, and probably a total and complete reboot this time. (But then again, I could be wrong...the people in charge then could decide to return to the "Prime Universe", who know...but I doubt it.)

It's not a flop, ST3 will be made. Just a disappointment because it didn't reach 100m+ as anticipated. Have a look through the box office topic for discussion on it.

I'm being approached by all manner of work colleagues this past fortnight, to be told their exciting news: "Hey, I got dragged to that new 'Star Trek' movie - you know, in 3D - and it was really good! I didn't think I'd like 'Star Trek'. But I loved it!"
