Most reasonable people probably were not expecting more than $240 million. $250 max if the reviews were great. The reviews were not great so it will fall more in the $210 or $220 range.
The foreign box office on the other hand is bigger than I expected. It will actually out gross MOS overseas so I guess that makes up for the lower domestic number.
