Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
I don't understand why this movie had to have a $190 million budget. That meant that it basically had to make well over $300 million just to be a moderate success. The bloated budgets on these blockbusters now are ridiculous, it leaves no room for error. Had STID had a budget of $100 million it'd be doing well.
I'm not sure it would be the same movie at $100 million.
