Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Saw both Trek and Man of Steel in Imax 3D. Trek wins the 3D conversion! But I like both films. In a way, Man of Steel was more "science-fiction-y" than Into Darkness! But I can see that it may not be everybody's cup of tea. Like Star Trek, Superman evokes strong feelings of what it should be.

Sure, Supes will out-do Trek at the box office at the end of their runs, but both left me wanting to see what their respective film makers will do next.

One closing thought: people thought Trek had product placement?! Tame, compared to Supes. It's a fact of big movies now, but if the Enterprise is dispatched to Planet IHOP or Deep Space Sears, I'll be a little miffed...
