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

I hate to interrupt, but STID has made more money to date than Trek '09 did, by about 55 million dollars. The foreign take is double what it was at this point in the first movie's run.
Star Trek had made $70 million foreign at this point in its release. STiD has made $102 million. Star Trek was playing in more markets at that point, though. STiD has made about $32 million more worldwide than Star Trek after the same number of days in release.

With the bigger budget, the bigger worldwide marketing push and the 3D release, Paramount would have hoped for over $500 million worldwide, with $450 million being decent, but not all they hoped for, and anything less being disappointing. The domestic legs and the foreign increases so far will hopefully put STiD over the $450 million worldwide mark by the end of its run. If it hits $500 million then they got the numbers they wanted, albeit with a slightly bumpier ride domestically than expected.
