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

Variety Article:

Key thing for me is that it points out the A cinemascore. I will find out which movies have got that in the last few years in a bit but it could be critical to long term $$$

Igniting what should be a $100 million Stateside bow, Paramount’s “Star Trek Into Darkness” grossed $10.2 million on Thursday, for a domestic total so far of $13.5 million, including late-night and midnight showings.

Film Review: “Star Trek: Into Darkness”

Overseas, the sequel has reached $47 million with early bows in seven markets last weekend. The film expanded day-and-date to an additional 33 territories. Pic’s global tally is $60.5 million and counting.

Stateside prospects for the film look especially strong after Thursday; pic received a rare ‘A’ CinemaScore rating from early viewers, which is good since they tend to be most vocal driving word-of-mouth. “Into Darkness” could surpass predictions depending on how well it plays with families and non-fanboys.
