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

I am drawn to the 190-210m range when I think about it. Next weekend could well be the biggest weekend in box office history and Trek is right in the middle of it. Strange move by Paramount.
If Fast 6 is huge enough, that could mean there are tons of sellouts and people decide to go see STID instead. Being second choice would be a good thing. Those people that see STID be considered "spillover" from people who couldn't get into Fast 6.

This happened with "Twilight: New Moon and "The Blind Side", and both movies ended up doing good.
Generally most "tentpole" movies do well over Memorial Day weekend. There's plenty of room for Trek to make $40+ over the four day weekend. This could be a crazy weekend with 5 movies making over $20 million.
