Friday Box Office: #1 ‘Evil Dead’ Really Strong
By NIKKI FINKE
"Sony’s Tristar/FilmDistrict/Ghost House’s Evil Dead took in $1.8M ”making it among the best late show openings of the year,” execs are gushing. “A great start for the film.” The film is playing on 3,025 screens this weekend and is looking like “a really really good” $11M to $15M today according to rival studios. That means initial low-ball expectations for a $20M-$22M opening weekend are rising quickly to $30M if it keeps on pace. Which it should. That’s amazing for a modest $17M production budget."
