You didn't realize the it was already Khan after hearing the 72 number of torpedoes (The exact same number of Augments in "Space Seed") line and seeing the man that was frozen in tube? It was extremely obvious by that point.

There was also Khan's "I'm better" at "everything" line the trailer.

There's a LOT of bitchy, whiny Trek 'fans' on social media, and IMDb complaining about this movie. It seems the more civil fans tend to congregate on here.

The haters are probably a minority, and they still paid their money to go to the cinema, and see the film. But boy, are they loud.
Don't go to IMDB for movie discussion

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

"Cumberbatch is Khan" has been the greatest non-secret secret on the Internet since casting first began last year. People who knew the truth kept shouting it (by which I don't mean posters on this board, but various journalists and others in Hollywood) and fans kept bending themselves out of shape to find some way to "prove" that it wasn't so.

I always assume the "I'm better at everything" line is something an arrogant baddie would say anyway. As for the 72 torpedoes, no, I haven't seen "Space Seed" in a long time, and didn't connect it with the number of augments on the Botany Bay. Even then, I still had a strong suspicion it would be Khan, but wanted to find out by seeing movie, not by someone who couldn't hold their tongue.

In the internet age, it's damned near impossible not to learn about half of a movie before it's out. I was lucky this time.

Amen! And while we're at it, I avoid the AICN talkbacks too... It's soooo negative...

I don't think I've gone on a board for a movie and its not full of hate and trolls. TDK and Avengers boards were friggin blood baths.

Fast 6 is going to be huge this weekend as expected if you look at all the sellouts. Hopefully STID will be able to benefit from the increased activity this weekend at the movie theaters.

About as lame as John Harrison.. (okay Gary is a lamer name but..). Imagine if they had retconned Gary Mitchell into working for Section 31.

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

Rth just updated for Thursdays numbers. Looks like Hangover 3 is doing very badly!

Rth, on 24 May 2013 - 12:14 AM, said:
been away, I was going with THO3 in 10-11m range, Stid 5m, IM3/TGG 2.2
Hangover 3 is going to be making only HALF the amount of the second movie at this rate.

STID barely dropped form yesterday, which is good news!

If HO3 tanks then it just shows how crowded May is. TA gave a much bigger boost to IM3 than most people thought too.

Though it's possible Trek could beat it still I guess, though you always need to count the budget in these things. Saying that, somehow Hangover 3 has a budget of 100m...

Nah, HO3 is tanking because of how bad the second Hangover movie was. Most people HATED it. Doesn't help that HO3 is getting even worst reviews.

To compare the movies on their first days:

Hangover 2 made 31.6 Million
Hangover 3 made 11 Million

Awful!
