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.
That's just not true, there was some industry talk about it before the debut, but every report I saw projected $80+ million. The fact that Variety predicted $85-90 million and it made $84 million shows it was pretty close to being on track.
You cannot go against nature
Because when you do
Go against nature
It's part of nature too
