More details on Oculus' opening and prospects...
- As reported in our box office report today, WWE Studios' Oculus performed adequately in its opening weekend, taking in $12 million. The film, which WWE partnered with Relativity and Blumhouse Productions to bring to theaters after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, has held solid reviews but had a disappointing C CinemaScore. That CinemaScore is right in line with the previous two horror films to open this year in Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Devil's Due. Those films opened at $18.3 million and $8.3 million respectively, and finished out at $32.4 million and $15.8 million.
Assuming that Oculus follows the same trend, it should finish with around $22 million domestically or so which will be a solid profit for a film budgeted at around $5 million.
