Vince Vaughn horror movie wins weekend box office


Body swap takes the top!

Another bleak pandemic weekend for North American theaters had the new horror movie FREAKY easily slashing into first place with an estimated opening of $3.7 million.

Directed by Christopher Landon (HAPPY DEATH DAY), the R-rated thriller finds a high-school girl (Kathryn Newton) switching bodies with Vince Vaughn’s serial killer known as the Blissfield Butcher.

As usual for the company, the Blumhouse production was made on a modest budget, with a cost of $6 million. Universal released the dark comedy (on FREAKY Friday the 13th) onto 2470 screens.

Critics seemed to think the movie was a bloody good time, with an average of 85% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 66 on Metacritic. Take a stab at the JoBlo review HERE.

Moving to second place was the Kevin Costner/Diane Lane thriller LET HIM GO with $1.8 million. The R-rated drama dropped by 55% from its opening last weekend for a ten-day domestic total of $6.9 million.

The tenacious Robert De Niro prank comedy THE WAR WITH GRANDPA was again in third place with $1.3 million on its sixth weekend on screens, bringing the PG-rated release to a domestic total of $15.2 million.

In fourth place was the supernatural horror movie COME PLAY with $1.1 million over its third weekend. The PG-13 thriller has a domestic total of $7.3 million.

The crime drama HONEST THIEF was in fifth place with $800,000, giving the PG-13 Liam Neeson thriller a domestic total of $12.4 million and a worldwide total of $20 million worldwide after six weeks.

Christopher Nolan’s PG-13 sci-fi thriller TENET was in sixth place with $735,000,  now up to a domestic total of $56.3 million and over $350 million worldwide.

Disney keeps digging through their extensive catalog for random re-releases, this time thrusting the PG-13 space adventure GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY back onto 1560 screens to add an extra $406,000 to its total.

Originally opening to unexpected success in 2014, writer-director James Gunn’s oddball Marvel comic adaptation now has a domestic total of $333.5 million and $770.7 millon worldwide.

Following TRUE TO THE GAME 2 in eighth place with $288,000 on its second weekend, another Disney repeat was in ninth as the G-rated Pixar comedy TOY STORY collected $222,000 for a running domestic total of $192.5 million (unadjusted for inflation).

Closing out the Top 10 was another reissue, delivering an early dose of Christmas cheer with the Will Ferrell comedy ELF in 288 theaters for $170,000. The Jon Favreau-directed holiday favorite has a $174.8 million domestic total from its 2003 release.

The future theatrical release schedule continues to remain in a state of flux, with recent rumors of the planned wide Christmas Day release for WONDER WOMAN 1984 reportedly instead shrinking to a limited release before a January launch on Warner Bros.’ streaming service HBO MAX.
