LOS ANGELES - "Star Trek: Into Darkness" has warped its way to a $70.6 million domestic launch from Friday to Sunday, though it's not setting any light-speed records with a debut that's lower than the studio's expectations.

Hollywood needs to understand that if we expect a movie to be a HUGE draw, many of us wait until the second or third weekend to see it, so that we get great seats! This is especially important for movies like Star Trek that have tons of spectacular special effects that we want to see from a good angle. By the way, I did manage to see a matinee showing of this new Star Trek movie, and it is FABULOUS!

Since I have yet to see a 3D movie where the 3D enhanced the experience, I saw Star Trek in Regular D and can report it is very entertaining. A little too much CGI, flash and explosions, but enough of a very entertaining story in between, fine acting all around, and a great villain by Benedict Cumberbatch. Gatsby, on the other hand, which I also saw in Regular D, and for which I had great hopes (the novel is one of my favorites), is a lost cause. Amateur acting by all but one of the principals, and the first half story gets lost in the glitz while the second half story is so slow and sticky that you doze off. Read the book.

"yvesbabette- Read the book." Or just watch the original cast in the episode "Space Seed" (1967), and the 1982 film "The Wrath of Khan." The story was told better the first time.
