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

If it is 100 freaking million over the last movie's gross... how can "disappointment" even be uttered?
It's a solid success, but it's not going to make $100 million more than the last one, more like $75 million more by the end of its run. That's decent and certainly enough for another sequel to be made, but not quite the box office jump the studio would have wanted given the budget increase, a much bigger international push, and the 3D release. The international release was a success, posting a substantial gain over the last film, while the domestic gross was fine, but the drop there meant that the worldwide gross isn't quite as triumphant as it might have been.
