The bottom line is that this film isn't performing as expected, which makes it unlikely that Paramount will even entertain investing $150 million into another Trek film, let alone $190 million.

With Abrams off doing Star Wars, the future of this franchise is murky at best.
I don't disagree with any of that. It makes me sad, of course, because I love what these guys are doing. But I agree.

Recently, I read that Into Darkness has been thrown around as an example of how the industry is going to become more reliant on international ticket sales and less influenced by the US market.

What are your thoughts on that?
