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

Something interesting about what happens if a film can reach a certain milestone like 200 or 300 million.

UPDATE! A smart person in distribution contacted me and explained exactly why $200 million is so important, and it's more than bragging rights. It's pay TV! If World War Z passes 200, Paramount gets to ask a lot more money for it from HBO or whoever! It's a huge difference, like tens of millions of dollars more. Basically if Paramount bought all the seats at every show of this double feature they'd still make a bunch of money on the TV deal. The more you know!
