- Universal/Blumhouse Production’s “The Invisible Man” brought in an estimated $29 million to win the domestic box office this weekend.
- The movie is another overachiever for Blumhouse. The horror company only made it for $7 million.
- The project was originally supposed to be a Johnny Depp-starrer to fall under Universal’s Dark Universe franchise, a collection of titles that would have featured classic horror IP.
- But after the box office failure of Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” in 2017, the Depp project was scrapped (along with the Dark Universe).
