'EVIL DEAD' Slays the U.S BoxOffice!


According to early, rough box-office estimates found at Deadline.com, Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead 2013 will likely overperform. Very early unofficial estimates had the horror remake grossing as much as $30m by Sunday evening, but by Friday night estimates had been downsized to (a still solid) $27m following an estimated gross of $11.5m at 3,025 locations on Friday, including $1.8m earned at late and midnight Thursday screenings according to official studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.
Unsurprisingly, Evil Dead‘s grosses from Thursday and midnight showings represent a sizable chunk of what Sam Raimi’s 1983 original (actually first screened in 1981) The Evil Dead earned during its entire run: $2.4m, or about $6m adjusted for inflation.
A TriStar (Sony Pictures) / FilmDistrict collaboration, Evil Dead features Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez2005 Berlin Film Festival Best Actor Lou Taylor Pucci (Thumbsucker), Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore. Sam Raimi, for his part, is back as one of the 2013 Evil Dead producers, and so are The Evil Deadproducer Robert G. Tapert and executive producer Bruce Campbell (now with a "producer" credit).
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Richard Attenborough, and Jeff Goldblum,Jurassic Park 3D is expected to take in $18m over the weekend, after pulling in an estimated $7m on Friday. Both Channing Tatum / Dwayne Johnson’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation and DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods, featuring the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, and Nicolas Cage, are expected to bring in $21-$22m by Sunday evening. Note: Official (studio) Friday estimates will be released Saturday morning; chances are there’ll be some adjusting to the early, rough estimates found in this piece. Weekend box-office actuals will be published on Monday.
