Well it's the weekend again. I implore you to spread the word, encourage and take as many of your friends, family members and coworkers to see the movie this Memorial day weekend.

I've seen it 4 times and the cinemas had between 4, 4, 15 and 6 people in them not counting myself. The 15 was evening on Saturday.

Saw it in IMAX 3D last night/this morning in fact. Planning to push my local friends to see it, as I'd like to see it again, though I imagine it might be a bit of a letdown on a normal screen...or in 2D. We'll see!
I saw it opening day in IMAX 3-D and visually, it was AWESOME! Last night I saw the non 3-D digital version and was not disappointed at all.

Re: Help Into Darkness

Thanks you are the best. My personal goal I set for STID is for it to take in $500 million at the BO. It's a high bar i know but if Trek is to to be ever taken seriously by companies and investors it has to perform at that level. Lets make it happen.

Anyone have a link to a fantastic review from a respected source? (ie, not us)

... I sell it to them as Mission Impossible meets Star Trek. It's totally worth the price of admission. Use what other tactics you think could sway non-trekkers.
Tactics is an interesting word, but it does reflect the marketing for this film.

It's pretty much one of Paramount's top franchises, the fact is though it might've hit a ceiling. Sci-fi movies don't do well in the box office generally, even if they are master pieces.

Re: Help Into Darkness

Iron Man, Spider-Man, Star Wars, and The Avengers may have something to say about that.

Re: Help Into Darkness

They're not really sci-fi movies except Star Wars, which has always been aimed at kids.

Re: Help Into Darkness

I was gonna say 3 are superhero movies, a distinct genre. Star Wars is science fantasy more than science fiction.

Re: Help Into Darkness

Iron Man, Spider-Man and the Avengers all have staples of science fiction in their foundations. It's not space and starships like BSG, Star Trek and Star Wars but still in the science fiction genre.

JJ's Trek is a fusion of Mission Impossible meets space scifi but titled Star Trek. The comic movies are mega success, the mission impossible franchise is a mega success. Star Trek should be able to perform on that level.

Ooh, I love that term. Science Fantasy. Thank you. And I agree, 3 superhero movies and a Science Fantasy Saga.

Re: Help Into Darkness

The thing about "Science Fantasy" or "Space Fantasy" (as Lucas originally described Star Wars ) is that Trek fits just as comfortably into that category as Star Wars does.

Re: Help Into Darkness

Well I've done my part. I've managed to talk my family out of seeing it and five of my buddies as well. It will probably still do great business over it's second weekend, but I'm not going to fool myself into thinking that this film needs to succeed in order for the Star Trek franchise to continue having relevance.
