And if anyone wants to talk about flopping sequels... hello Hangover III. Sure it will more than make up it's budget and be a huge hit overseas, but compared to the numbers Hangover II brought in it's a massive underperformer.

Yeah, it should still do fine relative to its budget, but it'll have a massive drop-off from the second film. They've left a lot of money on the table by wasting the good will from the first film.

Wrong, massive is not remotely accurate. If $270 million is the adjusted number, STID might not hit that, but the predictions that estimated a $180-215 million take are way off. By monday the following week, it'll have another $20 million plus weekend, and it'll already be in the $190-200 million range.
We were talking about the Hangover movies there, not the Trek movies, i.e. the massive drop-off for The Hangover III from The Hangover II is because they've produced bad sequels and wasted the good will from the first Hangover.
