Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
The studio projected $80-100 million, so that's what they got. No real surprises.
The studio forecast was $100 million for the 4-day weekend. As the article points out, studios usually lowball their forecast so that the ultimate opening gross looks even better in comparison.
