Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
According to Box Office Mojo, the production budget for ST:ID was $190 million. Double that to $380 million. The film has made $285 million to date. By that simple standard, the film has not proven successful. (http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=startrek12.htm
Most of those links are accounting BS, and means little. But as far as your statement is concerned, the movie has been out 11 DAYS
in the US, and slightly longer worldwide, and you are accusing it of being a failure when it'll be playing till September?? Utter nonsense.
