After all of the revision...the noise..in other words, "it's not yer daddy's Star Trek," what's the excuse?
I'm still not sure what excuse a movie that has made over $400 million dollars needs to make? Especially when you figure the latest film is going to make more money than any Star Trek film ever has.

I really am confused.
What is the thread title asking? The industry has different standards now. In the 1980s, 400 million would have been fantastic, now--in the shadow of the world spanning superhero films, a long-lived concept such as Star Trek put through the glitter grinder of JJ should be able to attract the very audience nuTrek set out to capture--the kind of people (beyond die-hards and fanboys) who fill the theatres to see the bigger fantasy films.
