They didn’t all die.
The Lionsgate horror-comedy The Blackening debuted on the big screen this weekend, and quickly earned more than it cost to make.
The film–directed by Tim Story (Barbershop) from a screenplay by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip) and Dewayne Perkins (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)–pulled down $7 million from 1,800 theaters over the weekend on a budget of just $5 million, according to a report on Deadline. The movie came in sixth at the domestic box office for the period.
The feature follows a group of Black friends as they reunite during a weekend getaway “only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer.” It doesn’t take long for them to realize “this isn’t a game.”
The cast includes Antoinette Robertson, Singua Walls, Grace Byers, Melvin Gregg, Jermaine Fowler, Yvonne Orji and Jay Pharaoh.
