Given that the Chinese market had the strongest opening weekend outside the US, it could very well indicate it will end up as number two worldvide. This is a new situation for Trek, which generally has been most popular in the English-speaking world.
Do you think Paramount will ask Abrams and his team to include a Chinese character played by some well-known Chinese actor or actress?
Or maybe give Sulu more to do?
Why? I'll just want to watch the movie again an hour later.
