What’s next for Trek
Star Trek seems to being doing well with these popularity contest style Awards, so hopefully it prevails again at the People’s Choice Awards. As we get closer to the end of the year, it will be interesting to see how many critic top 10 lists Star Trek appears. The film did well with the critics in May, but will it still be memorable in November and December?
