Well, did you like Wolverine? If so, I want to hear from you. I thought the fighting wasn't bad ... and the compliments end there. Jackman didn't even have the right swagger. X-Men: The Last Stand made $103 million opening weekend, and Iron Man made $99 million, so did X-Men Origins: Wolverine fail?
More importantly, I've seen Star Trek twice now, and like it. But I don't think it will make $87 million opening weekend. It will be less, but I think in the end it will be more successful than Wolverine, which should be done making money after its third week.
