Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
Yeah most of these budgets are guesses anyway. It's a made up formula, using made up variables.
And not taking into account studios "paying themselves" for renting soundstages, tax breaks...
That and you cannot tell me marketing and distribution of a film equals the budget of a film. That's plain stupid math.
Now that I've seen it, and have also had time to mellow, to really think about it, I now find it absolutely, unbearably repulsive in every way except for some of the acting. - about The Wrath of Khan. Interstat, Issue 62: 1982
