have to say the younger new generation could possibly truely love this movie and create a new generation of Treks. Now I grew up with star trek, old and new and star wars old, then the new... as a fan of old, my 7 year old nephew has seen the new star wars and is a fanatic now, wanting every Clone War toy, the movies, toys etc. I bought him the 2 foot falcon from the old movies and he's hooked... The point is I showed him the new Trek trailer and he's so excited to see it. This movie could usher in a new younger generation of kids to Star Trek and pull them to the old world of trek as well. Isn't that what Next Generation did for TOS for many kids as well? I see it having a huge future.

If it's extremely lucky, it might be able to get in the £150-200 million range at home, plus worldwide. I don't see it going higher than that, even with the mass appeal it needs to get.

I had to be generous and say "Maybe". But I'm not banking on it. I hope I'm wrong though, and it generates a TON of interest.

I give it a maybe. I have high hopes for this movie, but with the cancellation of Enterprise and the failure of Nemesis I'm skeptical about the future of Star Trek.

This is a tough poll question to answer, since there about three different movie audience demographics in the age 5-20 range.

I doubt TREK will appeal hugely to very young audiences, say under 9 or 10, and odds are you'd get more boys there. Since the film is reportedly aiming for a PG-13 rating, much of the content isn't geared toward such young kids either -- they'd have little idea this is part of a franchise, and would likely enjoy the spaceships best.

Pre-teens and young teens would get more into the action and sci-fi of the film, I'd guess. Older teens to 20s are likely part of one target demographic for the film, as they tend to have interest in franchises and related off-shoots.

Generally interest across the range would be high, but more marketing as May approaches will turn up the interest level beyond just the trailer now.
