Great that you finally got to see it and that you enjoyed it.

Is the interest big for Star Trek in Venezuela?
Its almost non existant. The last trek movie which was shown on TV (not cable) was in 2000. And the last series also shown on local tv was ds9 in 1996.

The last TREK movie made only $ 500.000. This time the premiere looked a lot fuller than last time - and it was the 3d version of the movie.

Tonight I'm going for seconds and I might go for 3rds on Sunday

Word of mouth is the main weapon here, as there is almost no publicity and Disney has the distribution rights here in Venezuela, so Star Trek is shadowed by "The Lone Ranger " advertisements.
It's all about canon being violated! ;-)
