It’s another slow week in theaters, but that should change with the addition of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark next week. This week, though, was lead by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While it’s not a horror movie by any means, it does contain a spin on the Charles Manson Murders and tragic actress Sharon Tate. Quentin Tarantino’s new flick came in at #3 with almost $30,000,000 in ticket sales. It was produced on a budget of $120,000,000 and I don’t think it’ll have a problem crossing that mark in the next few weeks considering it’s already at $88,000,000.
Elsewhere on the chart, Crawl stays in the top ten for another week, coming in at #9 with $3,000,000 in ticket sales. It’s officially made back all its money (production + promotion) and anything else grossed after this point is going straight to the bank. Midsommar continues to under-perform, but it did cross the $25,000,000 mark. Finally, Killer Unicorn is back on the chart thanks to an extra screening, which bumped its total up to $34,000. For a limited release, that’s not too bad!
Also, I received first week Blu-ray/DVD sales for the Pet Sematary remake, which came in with $2,691,000.
