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

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.
Don't shoot the messenger even the NY Times agrees with my assessment:

That total was on the low end of expectations; box office analysts had predicted $80 million to $100 million for the movie’s opening stretch. But “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which cost Paramount and Skydance about $190 million to make, is on track to double the overseas total of “Star Trek,” the film’s 2009 franchise predecessor, which was a bit of an international dud. Audiences in North America gave the well-reviewed “Star Trek Into Darkness” an A score in exit polls, boding well for word of mouth — although the multiplex competition ahead is steep.
