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

Expectations for Gastby rose in the few weeks prior to release. Before that it was thought most likely to be a problematic release.

The Forbes writer did a good job laying out the various scenarios of the domestic legs STiD could have. Reaching $250 million domestic would require a very atypical run for a sequel. I'd love to see it happen, but it's a long shot. $220-235 million domestic is probably the best case scenario, and $190-210 million is the range most box office analysts would bet on at this point. There's still a broad range possible for the worldwide gross, though, depending on how the foreign numbers continue to shape up and on the domestic legs.
