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

I don't think anyone is really putting a happy face on the numbers so much as Paramount had unrealistic expectations for the films opening.

In all honesty I thought the film would do better than than '09; better than it currently is mind you, but it is doing better and MUCH better overseas.

I am kind of shocked Paramount was as over the moon as they were considering the long break in between films (4 years is too long IMO for a tent pole blockbuster) and sticking it next to Iron Man 3 AND Fast6 while still expecting it to earn 100 million opening was an overreach.
