Abigail Makes $1 Million In Preview

Scary movies, this spring have included Immaculate by Sydney Sweeney, First Omen, the prequel to Omen, and the thriller Late Night With the Devil from Talk Show. With $1 million in preview sales so far, the vampire film Abigail, which was directed by the same people who brought us the last two Scream films, is now tearing up the box office.

Abigail is anticipated to gross between $12 million to $15 million in its opening weekend, edging out last week’s champion, A24’s Civil War. Given that Universal’s R-rated horror film only costs $28 million, if its opening weekend does better than anticipated, it should have little trouble turning a profit by the time its theater run ends.

Abigail centers on a teenage vampire ballerina who happens to be the daughter of Count Dracula. The story revolves around a group of robbers who abduct a child and then become extremely wealthy. When they discover they’re stuck with a bloodsucking, dancing monster, their $50 million heist goes south. Melissa Barrera, Dan Stevens, Will Catlett, Kathryn Newton, Kevin Durand, the late Angus Cloud, Giancarlo Esposito, Matthew Goode, and Alisha Weir as Abigail are among the cast members.

Abigail was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, collectively known as Radio Silence, who previously worked together to create the thriller smash Ready or Not and revive the Scream brand. The narrative for the film was written by Guy Busick and Stephen Shields, reimagining the 1936 horror film Dracula’s Daughter.

Abigail Expected To Be Bigger Than Civil War

It is predicted that Abigail would launch somewhat higher than Civil War, which is expected to gross between $10 and $12 million in its second weekend. The anime Spy x Family Code: White and Guy Ritchie’s The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare are this week’s other new movies that aim to make $5 million to $6 million in their first runs.
