“The Invisible Man” Set To Knock “Sonic” Out Of First Place At Box Office
The horror film genre gets a much-needed win.
After several hard failures for the horror film genre at the box office (for example, Dr. Sleep, The Grudge, The Turning, Black Christmas), the frightening films are back on top. Deadline estimates Elizabeth Moss ‘ The Invisible Man raked at 3,610 North American sites in a healthy $26 million on its opening weekend.
Get Out, the latest Halloween, The Detox, Sinister, Paranormal Activity and many more are the responsibility of the production company. The Invisible Man is a remake of the same-named 1933 film. The budget for the film was just $7 million, meaning the studio is already swimming in income. The remake follows on from Moss, who is plagued by an ex-boyfriend who is considered dead by everyone.
Sonic the Hedgehog, which has been in the top position for the past two weeks, will finish second to The Invisible Man with roughly $15 million this weekend. Call of the Wild, starring Harrison Ford, looks to lock down third place with $13 million. Sony’s Bad Boys For Life, which debuted last month, is set to hit the $400 million mark this weekend. A fourth film is currently in the works. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence delivered the best film in the franchise and look rejuvenated for a round four.
