Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
guys please read this article from Entertainment Weekly, one of the most trusted entertainment sites ever
trek did not make the list. which means to an extent it has been a box office disappointment. I think it is time for us to face reality and look to the future. I hope next time the producers of trek 3 would not listen to a loud minority of trek fans who are demanding that Trek goes back to TOS Mode.
I am not disrespecting TOS. TOS was great of its time. The series is a classic and it even made EW 100 greatest TV shows of all time.
However TOS is now of the past , what made trek 09 a huge success was because it was bold, fresh , unapologetic and daring. Even with its flaws it is without a doubt an outstanding film.
STiD was much more of a huge fan service to TOS trek fans thereby alienating new fans...The box office is proof of that.
STiD is still a huge success but it was not as successful as the studios intended. world wide the film needs to do 500m for it to be a success without question. Sadly it wont get there.
STiD should have done 270m+ in USA and 500m Worldwide.
The title of the article is "The 15 Most IMPRESSIVE box office performances."
, for example, is one of the worst movies ever made, and it still managed to rake-in $135m. That pretty fucking impressive.
did what people expected it to do.
Yada, yada, yada. Blah, Blah, Blah.
