Plus I look at STiD's #3 spot like this. It was only just barely #3. Hangover III did a mere 4 million more in business which in big movie release terms means that they were more or less tied.
Considering that STID opened at a huge number of IMAX locations and that it was in 3-D at a higher ticket price than the previous film + that Paramount make a big effort to promote and even release the film overseas first - coupled with the fact that they hired an international film star, Cumberbatch and it didn't, 'hit it out of the park,' with over $100 million opening weekend - I'd wager that the beancounters at Paramount are disappointed.

But, go right ahead an put the happy face on the numbers.

We shall see.

As an aside, I wonder if Paramount is worried about their next big release in June, World War Z, which they've also put a subsantial financial stake into?

I'm sure that Iron Man however has pleased everyone at Paramount this summer however.
You did this same shit with ST09.

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

Indeed we will, and Out Of My Vulcan Mind is nothing if not just as excited to see those numbers, I am sure.

In the meantime, what do we know about potential competition in Summer 2016? I think one thing that isn't on a lot of minds yet is that there may very well be not a Star Wars Episode but a Star Wars spinoff flick of some fashion at around the same time. Judgment on the Abrams-directed Episode VII will have something of an impact on how strongly that performs, but doubtless it will do well enough in general.

The film will almost certainly turn a healthy, but not spectacular, profit (probably coming in at around $430-450m), guaranteeing a third Bad Robot entry.

And, if the budget comes down to $150m or so, I am extremely confident a few judicious creative choices will result in no discernible drop in scope for the next one.

But, go right ahead and put a sad face on the numbers.

We shall see.

Episode VII is 2015, 2016 should be free of big screen Star Wars.
Disney will milk SW for all it's worth, but I highly doubt they'll have movie releases every year.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what they've stated they'll do!

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

So, I'm wondering: will May 2016 see the fight between Klingons and Yoda we've all been secretly waiting for?

What, just me?

Lets chat about it next Monday and we'll see where we're at.
I think it'll be at around $185 million domestic after its third weekend.

We might see The Amazing Spider-Man 3 kick off May 2016 and then the release of a Star Wars film later in the month.

Ah, yeah, that movie. I'm not very good at keeping track of all the superhero blockbusters, so I'm relying on everyone else for that! Yup, comes right down to it, I'm pretty much a spacer.

Neat. 45-48 was the range some claimed a tad too optimistic and others thought reasonable, right? Yay!

Naysayers and pessimists be damned, that's a really decent figure and an extremely strong "hold".

Damn, look at that shiny ten million from yesterday. That's a sixth of what Serenity made in its whole run. Lovin' it.
