Good to see Star Trek continuing to do well.

Onward to Star Trek 3.
You think dropping to number 3 in its week # 2 release with a 46% decline - well?

Its an impression and anecdotal on my part part, but STID doesn't seem to have the same, 'word of mouth,' success the last film did.

No doubt Dennis they will make #3, but you have to wonder if Paramount will sink as much money into the project next go around based on these early results?
It was up against FF6 and THO3 which have previously been bigger than Trek, but it nearly managed to beat THO3. It was 2-3m off which is very good, it also beat its estimates which indicates a good WOM.
