Default Transformers II beats Trek XI's opening day's numbers

J.J. Abrams' Star Trek opened on May 8 2009 at $30,893,975.
Paramount has released opening day numbers for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with the movie racking up an incredible $60,628,141, including midnight screenings in the early hours of the day. That's the second-best day in movie history, behind The Dark Knight's $67.2 million last year.

Since both Transformers and Star Trek are Paramount, this is all good news for Star Trek fans.

It's also good news for Orci and Kurtzman who wrote the scripts to both films.

Yeah...but it's getting stinky reviews. I doubt it will have the staying power of Trek. (though, with all the explosions and Megan Fox...I suspect a number of young men will be seeing it several times )

I really don't care about movie reviews. I just watched the new Transformers movie and I thought it was great. It was what I wanted and expected. It was full of action, some comedy, explosions, and cool robots. The reviews I have read all complain about a poor story, blah, blah... The same applies to the new Star Trek. The only reason it got so many good reviews is because the rest of the world was like "finally, a Star Trek that isn't brainy or boring". Trek's story sucked. The plot sucked. The action was cool and the effects great. I think the Transformers movie was actually better because the story could be followed and didn't have the big glaring holes Star Trek had. I went into Transformers expecting action and mindless fun. That's what I got with Star Trek as well, that is why I was disappointed.

Like all the hot guys in Trek aren't making the teenage girls and woman everywhere drool!! It's the "Titanic" effect. Story can suck, but handsome heart-throbs will pack 'em in the theater!

The true winners are Paramount, Robert Orci, and Alex Kurtzman.

Boring or nto boring is subjective, but I'd really love it if someone could point out one Star Trek movie made so far that has been "brainy".
