Reiterating final week’s field workplace report, Common Footage and Blumhouse’s low price range, fashionable tackle The Invisible Man (learn our overview) is a large hit, costing a reported $7M-$10M and now sitting at 98.3M globally.
The primary of the studio’s solo efforts, Leigh Whannell (Improve) wrote and directed the fashionable spin on the famed Common Monster during which Elisabeth Moss performs a girl haunted by her abusive ex-boyfriend.
The $98.3M already doubles final weekend’s debut because the movie appears to prime $200M in its lifetime.
As I defined final weekend, that is such an enormous deal as a result of, whereas The Mummy was arrange for failure, The Invisible Man was arrange for fulfillment. There isn’t a world during which Common didn’t simply throw the keys at Blumhouse and permit them to unlock any Common Monster they need. As an alternative of getting one huge film, it’s greater than probably we’ll be getting a number of smaller variations of basic characters from Wolfman to Dracula.
And with that, Leigh Whannell’s outdated counterpart, James Wan (Insidious, Noticed, Conjuring), is growing an (alleged) new tackle “Frankenstein” for Common, whereas Whannell has brazenly acknowledged his need to deal with Dracula’s lore.
What monsters do you need to see given a low price range, fashionable spin?
