“The Invisible Man” is expected to earn north of $20 million this weekend when it opens in 3,610 theaters across North America. Independent box office tracking services estimate ticket sales could wind up closer to $30 million since word of mouth has been strong. “The Invisible Man,” produced by Blumhouse, is already heading toward profitability, given its modest $7 million budget.
The movie could also pick up steam at the international box office, where it’s debuting in 39 overseas markets, including Mexico and the United Kingdom.
Leigh Whannell, the co-creator of the “Saw” franchise, wrote and directed “The Invisible Man.” It’s a modern-day take on the 1933 Claude Rains film, based on H. G. Wells’ novel. Moss stars as a woman who’s convinced that she’s being hunted by her violent ex-husband, played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Everyone around
