Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
This movie will be a decent hit, but it was silly for Paramount or anyone else to think it would some blockbuster, monster summer movie.
I don't think it was a silly expectation. STiD
will likely end up at about $230-240 million domestic, probably making it one of the top five or six films of the summer in the domestic market. Better marketing hooks could boost Trek beyond that into the high 200s or low 300s.
