I haven't read this thread, but I just got back from a preview screening in Sacramento. Of this movie I can only say this...of all the Trek movies I have encountered in my travels, this was the most...satisfying.
Seriously, I loved this movie. I have waited three years for tonight, it was worth it-I will see this movie at least 4 more times in theaters-so mark me down for at least $35.00 in gross.
This movie will do at least $300,000,000. My two cents.
I'm going to try to sleep now.
