A healthy but underwhelming first weekend for “The Grudge” is the box office news open this New Year.
The younger audience that knows horror movies mean “date night” is reliably showing up for the reboot of this J-Horror inspired franchise.
Terrible movie, but hey. Something ro do, right? A $13 million opening is on the high end of projections.
“Star Wars: The Ride of Skywalker” is managing another $37 million or so.
But the still overperforming “Jumaji” is closing that gap — low $20s this weekend.
“Little Women” is adding $12M, with “Frozen 2” taking on $11, “Spies in Disguise” around $10 with “Knives Out,” “Bombshell” et al hanging around at a few million less.
