What is it about Super 35 that makes it look "cheap" for you?
I just think they did a really poor job redressing the TNG sets they used.

They did a better job re-dressing the sets than Star Trek V: The Final Frontier did; this is especially evident in the way the movie re-dressed the corridors.

Another interesting tidbit: Compare ST09 to STID's 4th weekend:

2009/05/29 5 $3,619,568 +93% 3,507 $1,032 $200,319,725 22 2009/05/30 5 $5,385,521 +49% 3,507 $1,536 $205,705,246 23 2009/05/31 5 $3,608,638 -33% 3,507 $1,029 $209,313,884 24
STID:

2013/06/07 7 $3,230,412 +84% 3,152 $1,025 $191,670,851 22 2013/06/08 5 $4,935,524 +53% 3,152 $1,566 $196,606,375 23 2013/06/09 6 $3,259,819 -34% 3,152 $1,034 $199,866,194 24

350 fewer theaters. Making about the same amount of money. Only about $9 million off at that point.

Just as an aside, STID's gross from China alone is higher than Nemesis' TOTAL international box office revenue.

Monday's take: $1,334,349 for $201,200,543 to date. By comparison, Star Trek made $1,272,135 on the Monday after its fourth weekend. We're into the part of the summer where weekday numbers are elevated, so that'll help STiD's legs.
That's a great hold and bodes pretty well for the weeks ahead. I think this is going to be one of those pics that just holds real well during the weekdays. Probably looking at $235 million.

STID took 26 days to reach 200 million.

Most of the movies that took 24-30 days to reach that milestone topped out around 240M.

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

"The Man of Steel" will bump STID out of IMAX, and it will undoubtedly have a very good opening weekend, but the 40 reviews so far on Rotten Tomatoes have it at only 70% fresh. Even many of the fresh reviews are really lukewarm. Maybe MOS won't have very good legs. That will certainly help STID if fewer folks walk out of MOS this weekend saying, "Wow, that blew me away. I have to see it again," versus, "You know, STID was much better. I think I'll go see it one more time, instead."

My daughters and I are going to see STID again on Friday while the wife's out of town. They really want to go. No dragging. This is the first time I've never dragged a family member to a Trek movie. I even noticed my oldest downloaded the main theme to her iTunes. I'M SO FREAKING PROUD! Now, if I can just make them baseball fans.

I read a good article on Superman Returns that had my feelings summed up, I really wish they'd made a franchise out of that movie.

My sixteen-year old son and I are going Thursday morning to see Into Darkness. He wants to see it because all his friends say its good.

One thing that I liked about these new movies is the people and kids who may discover the original TV shows, TNG etc

I think you're overly optimistic. MOS will, in my view, kill all the May movies. Trek will last for a while, but it's nearing its last days above 1 million. My opinion, of course.

Baseballs going to die out in a few decades anyway. After Buck Bokai wins the Series.

It kills you that Abrams Trek is successful, doesn't it?
