Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)
I remember when Star Trek was so successful that it held the #1 spot for weeks at a time, now it gets #1 during a weekend that no other big budget movie comes out on then promptly loses that spot the following week. It isn't what it used to be.
A lot of things aren't what they used to be - the economy, people's theater habits, the price of... everything.
And how people remember how things "used to be" ain't how things typically were. I seem to recall NEM not even making it to No. 1 its opening weekend. Lost to that major blockbuster - Maid in Manhattan.
According to BoxOffice Mojo only two Trek movies spent more than one weekend at number 1. The Motion Picture
(3 weeks) and The Voyage Home
