Horror at the Box Office is Back!
Ok, so its been awhile since I did the weekly horror at the box office. But, I got this shiny new laptop and some speedy net service... So I'm back bitches. Woo Hoo! Just in time. Horror at the box office was rocking strong over the weekend with the release of Resident Evil Afterlife. This time in huh... 3D? Ugh. Ok. Anyway, people turned out. It scored a sick $27.7 million dollars at the box office. Nice. That puts it on target for something like a $60 million dollar score domestically over time. Maybe alittle more or less. Not to mention whatever it scores foreign. Next is the Robert Rodriguez flick Machete. A B-Movie featuring Danny Trejo and the return of Steven Seagal (thank you god) to the big screen. This movie has scored a total of $20.8 million during its two week run landing another $4.2 million. Not great but, good considering its now officially $800,000 in to the profit on a $20 million dollar budget. Next comes the The Last Exorcism which is quietly a hit. The movie cost all of $1.8 million to make but, has brought in a cool $38 million dollars overall. Eli Roth must be loving that considering he produced this bad boy. Piranha 3D took in another $750,000 bringing its total to $24.3 million. Which puts it in to the profit of about $300,000.
