‘The Invisible Man’ continues reign over eerily quiet box office

Mar 10,2020
“The Invisible Man” topped the box office weekend for the second week in a row, and the box office rankings remained largely the same due to a lack of new films and people in theaters.

The film gathered 85,000 people to 702 screens. Although the film earned positive reviews from critics, receiving 91 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, the thriller has only sold a total of 315,000 tickets domestically over the last two weeks.

“1917” and “Beasts Clawing at Straws” held on to second and third place. The former attracted 61,000 people to 599 screenings and “Beasts” sold 30,000 tickets to 491 screenings.

“Little Women” climbed up a rank from last weekend to fourth place after selling 19,000 tickets for 401 screenings.

“Honest Candidate” finished in fifth, selling 18,000 tickets for 417 screenings.

Total weekend admissions sales fell even lower than it has been for the past few weeks. Only a total of 230,000 people visited theaters nationwide over the weekend, a drop from last weekend’s 286,000 and 505,000 from the weekend before.
