BOX OFFICE FORECAST
Written by KingCnote on August 26, 2021
This weekend, Candyman is the only new movie. Revenue for this R-rated slasher film written by Jordan Peele is expected to exceed $15 million.
Universal has high expectations for Candyman. Horror films attract a younger crowd, which is less deterred by COVID. Also, the studio chose to release Candyman only in theaters. This summer, movies that arrived simultaneously on streaming services underperformed at the box office. (Variety)
Preview screenings of Candyman start tonight. If you dare.
