'Freaky' Leads at the U.S. Movie Theaters - See the Box Office Numbers

Freaky is on top of the box office.

The Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton film stayed on top of the sleepy U.S. box office with $1.2 million over the weekend, Variety reported Sunday (November 22).

Freaky led in the previous week as well, taking in an overall $5.6 million in its first 10 days.

“With the continuing surge of the virus this fall, another round of lockdowns and curfews are impacting theaters on a regional basis. Business is down sharply from last weekend as a result of temporary closures, even for films that had proven to hold quite well over the past few months. While the encouraging news of vaccines on the horizon remains a light at the end of the tunnel for the industry, this weekend’s dip at the box office is an expected reminder of the endurance that will be required to push through a very challenging holiday and winter season,” said Box Office Pro’s Shawn Robbins.

Here’s a plot summary: Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But when she becomes the newest target of The Butcher (Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries. When The Butcher’s mystical ancient dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie learns that she has just 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she’s trapped in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever. The only problem is she now looks like a towering psychopath who’s the target of a city-wide manhunt while The Butcher looks like her and has brought his appetite for carnage to Homecoming. With some help from her friends—ultra-woke Nyla (Celeste O’Connor), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich) and her crush Booker (Uriah Shelton)—Millie races against the clock to reverse the curse while The Butcher discovers that having a female teen body is the perfect cover for a little Homecoming killing spree.

Here’s a plot summary: “Let Him Go stars Kevin Costner as a retired sheriff and Diane Lane as his wife. The couple leave their Montana ranch to rescue their young grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family living in the Dakotas — a confrontation that ends in violence.”

“At this point, exhibitors will take what they can get in terms of ticket sales, but with box office grosses like these, it’s going to be a long, potentially deadly winter for theaters,” Variety said of the box office results amid the coronavirus health crisis.

Liam Neeson's 'Honest Thief' Stays at No. 1 at Box Office Amid Pandemic

The film saw a 44% decrease from its opening weekend box office, and has brought in a total of $7.5 million in its first 10 days in North America so far. More screens were added to the box office amid the decision to give movie theaters outside of New York City permission to reopen at reduced capacity starting on October 23.

“Our belief was that releasing a crowd-pleaser of a film, like Honest Thief, at this point in time, would generate the positive word-of-mouth necessary to successfully propel the film for many weeks. Back to back weeks at number 1, confirms that belief,” said Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road.

The box office number also reflects one of the lowest-winning weekend totals in theaters during the past two months. Comscore reports that only 49% of movie theater locations are open, with U.S. theaters operating with reduced hours and at reduced capacity with social distancing restrictions.

The numbers arrive at the same time as Seattle theaters were allowed to open, while New York announced that cinemas outside of New York City could open by following certain criteria for safety.

The movie’s brought in $4.2 million when including Canadian box office grosses.

“Moviegoers, particularly couples, came back to theatres to enjoy Honest Thief in a theatrical environment and were rewarded with a movie rated 88 percent on the audience score from Rotten Tomatoes,” said Tom Ortenberg of Open Road Films.

THR notes that the movie played “particularly well” in Miami, Chicago, San Diego and Atlanta.

AMC just announced something surprising amid the pandemic.

'After We Collided' - Box Office Numbers Revealed!

After We Collided is continuing to do well!

The second movie in the After series added $4.2 million to its overall box office run this weekend, bringing its running tally to $21 million, Deadline reported Sunday (September 13).

The film will continue to be released in different markets through September, and will be domestically released on October 23.

“Overseas, the UK is particularly notable. After bowing last weekend on just 59 screens via Shear Entertainment, theaters rallied to up the count to 380. The current weekend, which had good weather working against it, jumped 18% for a cume there of $947K cume to date. The first film was not released theatrically in the market, selling instead to Netflix, but an online push asked fans to let exhibition know how much they wanted to see the movie in a cinema,” the outlet also reported.

Josephine Langford, Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Dylan Sprouse all star in the film, which is directed by Roger Kumble.

“Our success in the UK is a testament to the power of a strategic grassroots social campaign that spoke directly to our film’s target audience in the forum they prefer. Traditional release marketing will always have its place, but as far as Afternators are concerned, they live and breathe social,” Voltage President and COO Jonathan Deckter said.

'Tenet' Struggles to Reach $30 Million at U.S. Box Office, But Does Big Numbers Internationally

The numbers are still coming in for Tenet.

The Christopher Nolan film brought in $6.7 million domestically over the weekend for a total of $29.5 million thus far in its U.S. run, THR reported Sunday (September 13).

The small box office success is largely due to movie theaters remaining closed in major markets like Los Angeles and New York City.

However, it is doing well internationally, with an estimated global gross of $207 million overall.

“In an unprecedented move, Warner Bros. has been shielding domestic grosses from public view by blocking anyone from seeing Tenet numbers on Comscore, a receptacle for real-time grosses provided by cinemas. Sources say the studio wants to control the narrative, versus having rival studios weigh in. The only number previously given out by Warners was the $20.2 million earned by Tenet through Sept. 7 after opening Sept. 3 where it could in the U.S. and the weekend before in Canada,” THR also reported.

More than 25% of the entire box office marketplace remains closed, but theaters in New Jersey and Orange County began to reopen, which proved to be a “major boost.”

Here’s why the movie would have never been released to PVOD.
