Something overlooked by everyone when adjusting the old movies for ticket price inflation from 1979-1991 onward is the population of NA has increased by a great deal. Even though ST09 sold the most tickets of any Star Trek movie, the percentage of the population that went to see it was much less than TMP/TWOK/TVH maybe even TSFS?
A lot of people don't bother going to the movie theater anymore though. A lot of people choose to wait for DVD/Blu-Ray.
Agreed. Ultimately you cannot compare the performance of a movie 30 years ago with today, too many things have changed.
