Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
Fast and Furious changed its direction, by focusing less on car racing.
The question becomes, what has Star Trek to change for it to succeed? I think some people are thinking the change was too much, that it lost something of its quality when it was adapted to international markets.
Humm... well I think there's a way to adapt it and make it a blockbuster franchise without losing the "core values" of Trek. Damned if I know how, mind you. It shouldn't be impossible. We just need someone with the right idea.
And that's my opinion.
