I saw the new 11th “Star Trek” movie at an AMC theater yesterday. The fairly large screening room was practically full of people and there were few open seats. And this was a 10 AM showing on a Saturday. At the end of the movie, there were many people clapping. A couple of co-workers also enjoyed the movie.
Considering the packed screening room and the movie itself, it did not surprise me when I read on CNN’s web site that the movie earned an estimated $76.5 million for the four days between Thursday and today. And that this was the best opening weekend for a Star Trek movie ever.
I’m definitely getting the DVD. Meanwhile I have to wait two years for the next movie.
