ST has never had the appeal of the 'big superhero movies'... There have been much bigger hits than ST, but also many, many films with a similar (or even bigger) budget that have done far worse... In the end, STID will be a hit, but a modest one, rather than a monster hit like IM3. And I'm okay with that, because I think STID is an incredible film, so much more better than IM3.... I'd rather have a decent hit that I truly love, than a monster hit that I really can't connect to...
