“Pearl Harbor”–triumph or disaster?

Top studio executives are predicting that Disney’s Pearl Harbor will earn more than $100 million in its opening over the Memorial Day weekend, shattering the record $90.2 million set in 1997 by The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the online media magazine Inside reported Thursday. According to the publication, their opinions are largely based on tracking studies provided internally to studios by National Research Group indicating that 75 percent of respondents are “definitely interested” in seeing the film.
