Well, I'm deaf though. So captions are an issue.

They DO have open-captioned and closed-captioned (rear-view)
captioned showings of movies around here though.
Have looked for Star Trek, haven't found a captioned showing yet.

Some theaters offer hearing enhancement devices.
I don' t know how well thay work.

@OmSigDAVID,
Deaf. Nothing to enhance. (Not hard-of-hearing. Can't hear 'tall.)

What was rong with Angels and Demons ?

Well, Brandon doesn't want me to talk about other movies on his Star Trek thread, but very quickly... it tried to jam too much information into 2 hours, a lot of running around looking anxious, but no drama, or gravitas or whatever you want to call it.

@panzade,
Looks like it's a return of the once-a-year "Star Trek" movie:

Domestic: $210,586,019 67.5%
+ Foreign: $101,350,393 32.5%
= Worldwide: $311,936,412

How much did they spend to make Star Trek?

@Lightwizard,
Projected with after the theatrical release in DVD sales and rentals, cable and satellite profits, it could easily tip over half-a-billion dollars.

That's a big gamble. This one paid off. They really need to get the production costs on films like this down (then maybe we would get more of them). I wonder what the bulk of the money goes into during production.

@rosborne979,
That's the average cost of a sci-fi film with top production values but I believe that includes the promotional marketing costs. Terminator Salvation's quoted budget of $200 M is apparently before marketing costs. You notice the TV ads for TS4 have now become non-existent? That means they don't want to pour any more money down the hole -- they need it for the foreign market and it's now going to become a cash flow drain.

Of course, the cost is dependent on the actors they hire, the CGI effects, the sets, and that's after they've paid the writer(s) and the director (who is often on a percentage rake-off status as I believe Christian Bale signed on for). I don't see them getting a film like Star Trek's production cost below that figure.

In 1972, or thereabouts, at the first "Star Trek" convention, Gene Roddenberry came with "The Cage" and a slightly longer version of this blooper reel. That was probably long, long before most people got to see it and we were thrilled.

Yes, I don't.
I don 't say wuz; I say was.
I don't apply a ch sound; conventional is fonetic.

Just in case there are some Star Trek fans who don't happen upon the video game discussions, Star Trek is coming out with an online video game similar in nature to World of Warcraft.

Some things that I always liked about the Star Trek fasers
r that thay don 't make much noise and the target just vanishes after u r finished with it.
It does not clutter up your floor.
I wish I had some of those.
