And people can make wild comparisons to unrelated films from years ago as if they knew more than just to repost numbers they read on other websites.
It was just an illustration that all of the box office doesn't go to the studio. No more than that.
As for Superman Returns: a good movie that for whatever reason didn't really click with the audiences, and we all know it killed the Superman film-franchise.
It certainly derailed the Superman franchise for a while, with a reboot being made some years later rather than a direct sequel. As I've said any number of times, though, I expect Trek to get another direct sequel in 2016.
