Did Star Trek Miss Women

Star Trek opening this past weekend to $75 Million.  Slightly less than expectation and $10 Million less than Wolverine with week before.  Some are scratching their heads behind the wondering what may have been the difference for the softer opening.  It is believed that Paramount may have missed the boat on Women.  Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) while clearly a guy film had a hunk in the lead that had a female following.  While Star Trek on the other hand had a crop of stars that were unknown and the ensemble was pushed more than the young Kirk (Chris Pine).  It is believed that ST will fare better over time given it's strong reviews and possible repeat business.
