Because there aren't any realisticly useful numbers, nor any way to
properly measure them.
Yes, you may be able to get Box Office numbers for the movies that show
more people going to Abrams' movie than a previous one, but that's simply
because there are more people than there used to be, more cinemas, etc.
Even if you converted that to a percentage of the population, it's still
not an accurate number because some poeple go multiple times.
