‘The Invisible Man’ Holds Well for Second Place at Weekend Box Office

After weeks of “one and done” horror debuts this season, The Invisible Man actually continued its strong run at the box office, finishing in second place for the weekend with an estimated $15 million in ticket sales.

Leigh Whannell’s take on the Universal Monster classic dropped an expected 57% from last weekend’s totals, ending with a $52 million domestic sum so far.  The Invisible Man also played well throughout the week and overseas, where it has generated more than $45 million bringing its worldwide total close to the lofty $100 million mark (which it is all but guaranteed to shatter next weekend). The Invisible Man has performed strongly in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, regions synonymous with the classic Universal cannon.

With little competition on the horizon until A Quiet Place 2 on March 20, The Invisible Man will look to add to its totals, and it is already the clear cut horror box office champ of a lackluster crop of fright films.

Check back next week to see how The Invisible Man fares and how much the Universal/Blumhouse hit can add to its total.
