Star Trek didn't beat the opening weekend of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So far, that means I'm right. And Wolverine took a huge drop at the box office. That means I am right again ... so now we'll see if I am pure genius when Star Trek only takes a respectable ... let's say 50 to 55 percent drop at the box office next weekend. And by the end of the month Trekkers will be proud that their movie made more than the Wolverine.
Yes, I loved the film. Saw it twice just to make sure.
