Re: Was moving 'The Next Generation' over to movies a bad decision?
Many sites like f.e. http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/1979/0ST01.php
says STTMP grossed $139 million worldwide divide by average ticket prize for 1979 $ 2.51 = 55.378 million x $7.50 (average ticket prize for 2009) = $414.3 million worldwide
p.s you are right about Trek not preforming good overseas but at the time. Shortly after Star Wars there was great hype for syfy movies that i am guessing helped STMP overseas great deal..
Star Trek change everything, and aren't this convention wonderful: William Shatner
