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

Iron Man 3 has already made a billion dollars worldwide (with a budget of only 200 million). It's opening weekend was 174 million. Paramount has to be disappointed with Star Trek in comparison.

ST has never had the appeal of the 'big superhero movies'... There have been much bigger hits than ST, but also many, many films with a similar (or even bigger) budget that have done far worse... In the end, STID will be a hit, but a modest one, rather than a monster hit like IM3. And I'm okay with that, because I think STID is an incredible film, so much more better than IM3.... I'd rather have a decent hit that I truly love, than a monster hit that I really can't connect to...
