‘Spiral: Saw’ has made good the forecasts and has managed to lead the box office in the United States during the weekend of its premiere with an estimated income of $ 8.7 million. A slightly disappointing figure, as it was expected to be between $ 10 and $ 15 million, but enough to become the sixth film in the franchise to reach the top of the box office in this country.
The other film that aroused special interest about its operation at the box office was ‘Army of the Dead’, since the film of Zack snyder It premiered in a record number of rooms for a Netflix production, although it seems that finally they were less than initially announced. Unfortunately, this wild zombie show has not lived up to expectations either, as it was believed that it was going to amass between $ 1.5 million and $ 2 million and has had to settle for just $ 780,000 according to Deadline.
In fact, the latest from Snyder has not even managed to sneak into the three highest-grossing titles of the weekend, as the second position has been in the hands of ‘Wake up the fury’, the new collaboration between Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham. Its 3.7 million dollars represent a decrease of 55% compared to the previous week.
The third position has been for ‘Those who wish my death’, the remarkable thriller of Taylor sheridan made by Angelina Jolie. This time it seems likely that the simultaneous release on HBO Max has played against him, since it was not a movie with an event band and he had to settle for $ 2.8 million.
And in Spain?
There is still no collection data in Spain during this weekend, but ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’ was number 1 both on Saturday and Sunday, demonstrating once that in our country more attention should begin to be paid to reruns.
