I remember seeing the first one the day it came out and was completely blown away by the story, the special effects and was amazed that it wasn't a huge hit. It will be interesting to see the sequel. I was wondering if they'd get it made before Harrison Ford got too old to be in it then of course William Shatner proved no one is too old.
@Badger1225 I saw it the first weekend, myself. I remember one of the morning shows like Today or GMA showing a decent chunk of the end chase during an interview with Ford the week before it came out. One of the worst spoilers I've ever seen. Still, I agree that it was very odd that the movie wasn't a hit at the time.
