Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
Members of boxoffice.com are guessing that Star Trek will follow 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' for the rest of its run.
If that happens, Star Trek Into Darkness will finish with $190m
That's a bit of a leap. If the Moday number is accurate that would extrapolate to Trek hauling in some $27 million between Mon-Thurs giving it a total of $110 going into the four day weekend. Add another $40+ million for the four day Memorial Day weekend and Trek is at $150 minimum. The following week quite a number of schools are out so weekday numbers will probably run slightly higher. This is looking more like $225 minimum, probably just a little more. Then add international numbers and you're probably looking at a worldwide gross in the neighborhood of $450-470 million.
