Director M.Night Shyamalan’s thriller “Old” might be his best work in 20 years. The Universal Film stars Alex Wolff and Thomasin Mckenzie.
The movie approximately gained $6.8 million from 3,355 theatres this Friday and is expected to add about $9 million more. If this actually happens then the movie might take the no.1 spot on box office charts. If so, “Old” will mark Shyamalan’s 14th film to gross more than $15 million in its opening weekend, and the seventh film to debut in the top spot, as per Variety.
Variety also reported that the film’s predicted $15 million haul marks a slight downturn at the box office compared to other recent debuts — like “Black Widow” and “Space Jam: A New Legacy” — which brought in $80 million and $30 million in their opening weekends, respectively.
Another release “Snake Eyes, which is a “G.I. Joe” origin story starring Henry Golding. The movie reportedly brought in $5.47 million on Friday from 3,521 theatres. But both the movies “Old” and “Snake Eyes” numbers will most likely be enough to top both “Black Widow” and “Space Jam 2.”
“Black Widow” and “Space Jam 2.” are expected to come in at No. 3 and No. 4 on the box office charts. “Black Widow” is estimated to earn another $11 to $12 million, bringing roughly $155 million.
“Space Jam 2,” on the other hand — which topped last weekend’s box office charts — has dropped down to No. 4, seeing a significant decrease in ticket sales on Friday, when it brought in $2.97 million from 4,002 theatres.
