Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

STiD has a shot at $300 million domestic, but bear in mind how difficult it is to achieve that level. Over the last five years only two or three summer movies per year have made over $300 million domestic (three in 2008, two in 2009, three in 2010, two in 2011 and two in 2012).
Even though this is true, I think Paramount likely has unrealistic expectations for this film.
