A Hamm-less ‘Star Trek’ explodes this Summer season!

11 05 2009

Well, here we are. The sci-fi tentpole “Star Trek” reboot from director J.J. Abrams has been in theaters for only a few days, and it is well on it’s way to obliterating the box office receipts of the previous ten Trek films. Critics adore it, fans approve of it, and audiences are flocking to it.

Poor “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” started strong last weekend, but had a steep dropoff of nearly 70% in the second weekend. While it is a decent popcorn actioner, the story lacks the heart, depth, and broad appeal that Star Trek apparently has, so look for the space exploration adventure to hold a bit steadier than “Wolverine” for its second week.

Not much Jon Hamm or “Captain America” news this last week, but I wonder if the critical smash “Star Trek” remake could have used a little more charm from somewhere….

Eh. Well, maybe.
