No one knew how big or how big this would be, but the Universal/Blumhouse feature takes on the beloved horror video game, Five nights at freddy’s‘s A looks forward $50 million+ Maybe start more. At this level, this is BO’s second-best opening this fall Taylor Swift: Tour for the Ages ($92.8 million).
Presales have grown to an insane amount since we last reported, some say exceeding $11 million, and some exhibitors are anticipating an $85 million tentpole-type opening, but what should stop here is the day and date of the entire theatrical show It’s All On peacock. Last year, many swore by a sum of more than $50 million The end of Halloween That ended up flopping to a $40 million opening, with the sequel ending up setting record-breaking weekend viewership on Peacock at one point.
While pre-sales are now higher than M3GAN to Freddy ($30.4 million), many took note of the fact that the image was uploaded in the foreground, backed by a very emotional under-25 demo. And look what happened with Taylor Swift: Tour for the Ages Recently, many exhibition and distribution sources swore to God that the film would open to $100M-$125M+ over the course of three days, only to see $92.8M. That’s the nature of millennial moviegoers when they schedule an event in conventions in advance, and by Saturday, it’s over. Universal has a theater count of 3,500 to 3,600 FreddyWith PLFs included. Previews begin at 2pm for the PG-13 genre title.
If the numbers are so high, why the hell did Universal choose to continue this day in and day out? My understanding is that it simply boils down to the film being originally packaged that way. Will money stay on the table because of the peacock? Perhaps, although it is argued that the reach of streamers is not as large as Disney+ or Netflix, in the end, FreddyIt is an OTT service driver. Black Widow With an $80.3 million opening, it was arguably the biggest box office opening for a day-and-date streaming title, despite the fact that it was offered to Disney+ subscribers for a $25 fee. Halloween kills On day and date on Peacock it debuted with $49.4 million.
Freddy‘s, Directed by Emma Tammy, it follows Mike (Josh Hutcherson; Ultraman, hunger Games Imtiaz, a troubled young man, takes care of his 10-year-old sister, Abby.Piper Rubio; Holly and Ivy, unstable), and has been haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his younger brother for more than a decade.
Recently fired and desperate for a job so he can retain custody of Abby, Mike agrees to take a position as a night security guard at an abandoned restaurant: Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. But Mike soon discovers that nothing about Freddy is as it seems. With the help of Vanessa, a local police officer (Elizabeth Lail; You, Mac and Rita), Mike’s Nights at Freddy’s will lead him to inexplicable encounters with supernatural forces and drag him into the black heart of an unspeakable nightmare.
The pic also stars Mary Stuart Masterson as Mike’s icy Aunt Jane. Cat Conner Sterling as Max, Abby’s babysitter; and Matthew Lillard as Steve Raglan, Mike’s arrogant career advisor.
