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

The below expected results do certainly match up with my experience of seeing the film. Barely anyone in the theatre, no sell outs on Friday as of 6pm. The audience I saw the movie with was dead. No claps, no cheers, no gasps. Certainly no word of mouth was leaving our theatre. Indeed, the procession of people leaving our theatre from the previous screening was something akin to the Batan Death March. People looked disappointed, bored. When someone waiting in the lobby asked them "How was Trek?" One guy just shrugged and said "Don't get your hopes up."
