No, just self-serving denial.
No its not self denial. check out all this films,
The dark knight
Pirates of the Caribbean: dead man's chest.
All this films, I mentioned all performed better overseas in comparison to their original films.
Majority of the time it happens. Point is this, Paramount wanted a huge increase from ST09 both in the USA and foreign Box office. Sadly it didn't happen in USA.
That is all I am saying. I don't get the ridicule.
I see once again I am the one single voice. look fellow trek fans, I get the loyalty and always trying to put a positive spin on STiD box office. however we need to face the facts for once.
STiD underperformed in the USA in comparison to ST09..Why is this even a debate.
ST 09 =257m (NO 3D)...Adjusted for inflation 274m
STiD 2012 = 224m (3D)
STid would not even have beaten Wrath of Khan if you take away the 3D ticket sales.
WOK would have made 213m in USA if the film came out in 2012.
STiD without 3D sits at 180m-190m
Its the solid truth...all this are facts ...it is as truthful as saying the earth is round.
