The FACTS are that Nemesis graded rather well with audiences.
What "facts" are these?

If more people had ventured out to see it, I think the lack of BO take in first run theaters wouldn't have been as much of an issue.
That doesn't make any sense. If more people had gone to see it, the BO take would have been higher.

Box Offcie Guru:

Paramount reported that the Nemesis audience was 64% male and predominantly over 25. Fans were pleased as those polled by CinemaScore.com gave it an encouraging A-. However, long-term prospects seem cloudy. Most of the sci-fi/fantasy crowd is already purchasing advance tickets for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers which opens on Wednesday. Plus Trek movies traditionally attract a large share of their audience on opening weekend meaning hefty declines in future weeks seem like.
In other words, people who went to actually SEE it liked it.

The comment was based off of my last post...IE: IF ST Nem had better expectations due to Insurrection's performance.
