Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
According to those who have explained box office to me, a 46% drop is actually a very good hold. A lot of "big" films drop by well over 50%.
And I'm not overly worried about the Smith and son movie...mainly due to the "and son" part of it. Every time I have seen this trailer in the theatre it elicited laughs/"that looks boring"/"I've seen this movie before"/and finally "ugh. His son. AGAIN? Ugh" responses.
