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

It seems like many web sites are resorting to tabloid journalism with sensational headlines to grab attention. We had "STID voted the worst movie by fans", then "Star Trek is broken" and now "STID bombs in Japan".

It made twice the previous Trek movie and it's a bomb? Hopefully the next Trek movie will bomb in Japan too by making $20 million.

Trekweb reports Into Darkness bombed at the Japanese box office. So much for Ben Cumberbatch's superstar status there.
$9 million US in three weeks is bombing there? That's just short of double Star Trek 2009's take for five weeks.

One of the negative reviews cited seems mostly to fault the movie for not being TMP. Another boils down to "Captain Kirk is an a$$hole" and "even the Japanese subtitles didn’t tell the story correctly."
Ah, Trekweb's unbiased reporting strikes again.

To be fair, they did say of the second review (the "Captain Kirk's an a$$hole" one) that it " ... goes on to lambast the film, but the rest of it is not worth reporting."

I guess even Trekweb has its 'red line'.
