Nightmare Scares Up Some Box Office

2 May

by: Captain Oblivious

A weak April finally got jumpstarted in it’s last week as the reboot of the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm St. took the top spot easily by bringing in a little over 32 million dollars. Exact numbers will be out on Tuesday but the number should hold close to the estimate.

While the take of NOES is a bit below the opening weekend of Friday the 13th over a year ago it still bodes well for a possible sequel down the road.

Summer should begin in full force next week with the release of Iron Man 2 which should cross 100 million dollars in it’s first three day frame.
