ST 3: ST's equivalent of Skyfall..?

The parallels between the James Bond 'reboot' are very apparent...

Star Trek (2009) was like Casino Royale... Praised for being different, breaking away from traditions, polarizing fanbases but being appealing to new audiences...
STID was like Quantum... Good, but not as good as the first one (judged by Rotten Tomatoes score, general consensus, not my personal opinion per se), and where STID didn't fare as well as ST domestically, Quantum didn't fare as well as CR internationally...

Both CR and QOS made an equal amount of money, much like ST and STID...

Then came Skyfall...

For the record:
CR made 599 international...
QOS made 586 international...

Skyfall made 1,108..!!! It doubled both domestically and internationally..!

It may have had something to do with Bonds anniversary, well... ST 3 will also be released with ST's 50th anniversary..!

The parallels are there... I'm really hoping Skyfall's success is an indication for ST 3....
