Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
One thing to remember - STiD isn't done yet.
Another - It's gained huge numbers overseas vs. any other Trek film.
Next - It's the highest grossing Trek film. Ever.
And Again - ST ain't SW. Never going to be.
All that said - Sorry to disappoint some here, and I know they've all hoped and wished and dreamed and gnashed teeth and commiserated over it, but STiD is a win.
Now that I've seen it, and have also had time to mellow, to really think about it, I now find it absolutely, unbearably repulsive in every way except for some of the acting. - about The Wrath of Khan. Interstat, Issue 62: 1982
