    While Nemesis was so bad that Maid in Manhattan beat it, I'm still convinced that The Two Towers played a role. It was such a huge juggernaut film released only 5 days after Nemesis. Naturally, Nemesis was over shadowed by it.

    Of course, if Nemesis wasn't a train wreck it probably would have at least beat Maid in Manhattan opening weekend. Even then, The Two Towers would have demolished Nemesis when it opened a mere 5 days later.

    Nemesis never had a chance, nobody came out to see if it was good nor not. There was no usual "Star Trek Opening Weekend" to show anyone cared enough to see it. Even Star Trek V had a solid opening weekend before people decided once was enough.

    Maid in Manhattan made more money because even fans were no longer interested.

    I wonder if the release of World War Z will push Trek out of many of the theatres this weekend?

    ^ Local AMC and Regal theaters have ID listed through this Sunday. Beyond that the upcoming schedules are incomplete.

    Don't forget about Monsters University also. Trek will be out of the theater by me Friday.

    World War Z is a Paramount film as well. I wouldn't think they'd want to compete against themselves.

    I think the decision also has to do with that my theater has 12 screens. A theater a half hour from me with more screens will still have Trek.

    In fairness to Nemesis, Maid in Manhattan opened in more theaters. Not sure why a romcom would be in more theaters than a sci-fi action film, but it was.

    Nemesis opened in more theaters than Insurrection, though, and opened $3.5 million lower, despite four years of inflation.

    That's true... IIRC, the 30 screen AMC in Easton (Columbus, OH) still was showing ST09 a month after it had left the other first run theaters (it was showing the "dollar" theaters at the time).

    STID is now out of most theatres here, in Australia. I might try and catch it a fifth time, if I can find somewhere that is still showing it.
