I doubt STID will any lasting appeal. Too much of it was built around the secrecy of Cumberbatch. In a decade, that won't be a factor at all and when people sit down to watch it it'll just be another generic summer blockbuster. And I say that as someone who kind of enjoyed STID.
Yet we still remember "The Best of Both Worlds" even though so much of it was built on would they save Picard or not. We still watch almost twenty years later even though we learned the answer long, long ago.
I actually think this film is going to be fondly remembered because its such a fun film to watch. Can't wait for the home-video release so I can marathon it with my other favorite Trek films and see how well it compares.
