Who cares which film does better?

ST will do well enough to have a sequel - period.

Apples, oranges - and with Terminator: Salvation... grapes.

At least be honest about it and don't dispense it under the guise of you knowing there's more to the story or that Nimoy isn't as noble as someone like Robert Redford.

What the hell did Leonard Nimoy do to you, anyway?
Your assumptions about me are disingenuous and intellectually dishonest. I'm am NOT a Nimoy-hater and you betray your own dishonesty in this discussion by even attempting to paint such an ugly label on me. Shame on you for lying with a re-frame like that.

I've only met Nimoy once, and while he seemed like a very compassionate man, he steered the room's conversation away from Star Trek. That's fine. That's why, for examnple, Robin Williams wouldn't do Mork. You don't want to be typecast by your earlier work - unless you've got no where else to go.

My attitude is that, if an actor is contractually obligated to promote a film, it's wrong and naiive of you to take those public promotions and assign any other meaning to them. Hollywood is a jungle, and a studio contract can take a good man and make him say or do things he may not want to do. So, the recommendation of a film by an actor associated with a film really is pretty weak.
