Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Box Office Mojo just posted its 12-day estimate for STID and for comparison, the 12-day total for ST09 (only domestic):

ST09 = $155,536,131

STID = $155,827,000.

I am in a non-Trek family, but my 10 year-old said she'd actually see it with me, again. As we were going to the theater, my 13 year-old kept grumbling about how she was being dragged, and she wanted to see "Gatsby", instead. She walked out a little down on the movie (even though she seemed to be enjoying it), and to my astonishment, my wife, who only liked TVH and otherwise wants nothing at all to do with Trek, said to her, "Hon, I don't know what you mean, that was actually a very good movie." I couldn't believe my ears.
