Invisible Man sees its way to top of US box office

  • Published at 12:09 pm March 3rd, 2020

Slipping from the top spot in its third week out was Paramount's adventure comedy Sonic the Hedgehog, at $16.3 million

Enough viewers saw The Invisible Man this weekend to propel it to the top of the North American box office, with $28.2 million in ticket sales, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations reported Monday.

That result for the Friday-to-Sunday period more than justified Universal's bet on a remake of the famous H.G. Wells story, the movie's $7 million production budget has already been dwarfed by its $20 overseas box office and it has drawn strong reviews. 

The thriller stars the visibly talented Elisabeth Moss as the ex-girlfriend of a man (British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen) who seems to return to haunt her after supposedly committing suicide. 

Slipping from the top spot in its third week out was Paramount's adventure comedy Sonic the Hedgehog, at $16.3 million. Jim Carrey stars as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in the video-game-based film. 

In third place was 20th Century's The Call of the Wild, starring Harrison Ford, at $13.4 million. The story is loosely based on the Jack London classic, set in the wilds of Alaska and Canada's Klondike region.

Fourth spot went to a new Japanese manga film, My Hero Academia, from Funimation, at $5.8 million. It tells the story of a young boy, often bullied, who finds his way into a prestigious high school for superheroes-in-training.

And in fifth, still strong in its seventh week out, was Sony's Bad Boys for Life, at $4.4 million. The action comedy, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, has passed the $400 million mark worldwide.

Rounding out the top 10 were:

Birds of Prey ($4.1 million)

Impractical Jokers: The Movie ($3.5 million)

1917 ($2.7 million)

Brahms: The Boy II ($2.6 million)

Fantasy Island ($2.3 million)
