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

That's hardly a fair comparison though. Indiana Jones, The Matrix and Star Wars are JUGGERNAUTS of the box office. Of course Star Trek isn't going to pull in those kinds of numbers, especially when it was a last-minute change.
The last-minute change is a fair enough factor to mention, but Indy 4 did $317 million domestic and The Matrix Reloaded did $281 million domestic. They're much bigger juggernauts worldwide than Trek, but their domestic numbers are in the range that STiD is aiming for.
