Barbarian is looking to scare up some business at the box office this weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter reports the horror film took in $850k from Thursday previews. It is currently on track to take the top spot at the box office with $5 million to $6 million this weekend. The 20th Century Studios and New Regency flick, which is rated R, currently has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 71 reviews.
While $5 million isn’t a notable return in box instances, September tends to be a quiet box office month. Outside of Top Gun: Maverick, which continues to exceed expectations, Barbarian has little competition. The only other big release this weekend is Bollywood pic Bramastra Part 1: Shiva, which took in $700k from Thursday previews. Estimates have that film on track for a $4 million weekend as it expands into 810 North American theaters. The film is set to have the biggest ever IMAX release for a Bollywood film.
The only other large release for September will be Don’t Worry Darling, set to open later this month. The Warner Bros. Discovery flick, however, has been at the center of controversy as of late, and that could end up hurting its box office performance.
