Elizabeth Moss’ The Invisible Man has amassed between $26-$27 million in its opening week—a film which only cost $7 million to produce.
The Invisible Man beat out Sonic the Hedgehog, which led box offices the past two weekends and it made around $15 million this weekend. Disney’s Call of the Wild finishes third this weekend making $13 million.
Universal-Blumhous’s The Invisible Man received a B+ Cinemascore from opening day patrons and a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film is a modern take on Universal’s 1933 Claude Rains film, which was based on the 1897 H.G Wells novel. Moss plays a woman who’s being haunted by her abusive and now invisible boyfriend (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). After the woman’s boyfriend passes away via suicide, no one believes Moss’ character that she’s being terrorized by him.
Also starring in the film are Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, and Harriet Dyer.
