Star Trek's not The Hobbit. The Hobbit would have been competitive at any time of year; it doesn't follow that if one is concerned that a movie can't keep up with the competition it makes sense to move it to a less lucrative release date.
Yeah...last time Star Trek went up against Peter Jackson, it didn't work out too well for the franchise.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Looks like STID is set to start disappearing from smaller markets, like Morgantown, WV (where I live). It's already down to two screenings per day at both of our theaters. Per schedules posted online, it will definitely be gone from the Carmike on Friday and probably from the Regal/Hollywood as well.

I blame Sauron.











Come on, who's going to argue with that.

I blame it on Gene Roddenberry. If his ashes had stopped their spinning long enough to publicly endorse the fucking thing and cash the studio's check it would have made a billion dollars domestic.

Um, the Jennifer Lopez film 'Maid in Manhattan' - beat 'Star Trek: Nemesis' on their opening weekend in 2002. I don't think 'The Lord of the Rings' film had much to do with the demise of NEM; more the bad pre-release reviews and bad word of mouth after release. It was more due to the fact that the movie going public was tired of paying movie ticket prices to see a bad two hour TV episode on the big screen.

Well being against two holiday period blockbusters sure didn't help.

Well, there's that....

I cannot blame the public for exercising common sense.
