People stopped coming to see Star Trek: The Fast and The Furious(thanks RLM!!!)but are still coming to see IM3.
Of course, that's not true at all. People are still coming to see both of those films. More people are coming to see IM3, that's all.
But man are people twisting, now that the international take is north of 400 million, to try to convince themselves that STID is not a success.
