BOX OFFICE: A Big Thursday pushes “Invisible Man” toward $30 million+ opening

man2“The Invisible Man” seems destined to break the horror losing streak that 2020 began with. Universal’s Leigh Whannell vehicle for Elisabeth Moss did $1.65 million Thursday night, per

That suggests a boffo Friday and Sat and that early projections of a $20 million opening were lowballing it. As Deadline points out, “Get Out” and “Split” went from Thursday night’s in that range to $33-40 million+ openings.

And reviews will certainly give this one a boost. Moss is perfectly castand could be Big Box Office after this, upping her quote at least within the genre.

“Sonic the Hedgehog” is headed towards $17 million. It’s well over $100 million now, just padding its “best performing video game adaptation ever” resume.

“The Call of the Wild” will tally another $13-14, to go with the $32 million mark which it passed this week. $45 by all in by midnight Sunday?

The anime continuation “My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising” opened Wed. and looks as if it’s headed towards  healthy opening weekend plus 2 — $2.5 or so Wed., steep fall Thursday, big weekend ahead. Maybe $18 million since Wed. by midnight Sunday?

Hard to tell if it’ll hit “Dragonball Z” territory.
