Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
I heard that World War Z had a production budget of 400 million dollars. Who the f**k sinks that kind of money into a movie like that in this day and age? That's ridiculousness.
That figure comes from a tabloid writer completely misreading the recent Vanity Fair
article on World War Z
. The article states that the budget went from $170 million to $200 million because of reshooting 40 minutes of the film. The tabloid writer idiotically read that as being $200 million for the reshoots in addition to the original $170 million and then rounded up to $400 million for a juicy headline.
