The Void Performs Strongly at the Box Office



This weekend, the indie sci-fi/horror film THE VOID (review) hit limited theaters, as well as VOD platforms and OnDemand. It turns out that word of mouth and hype for the film worked as it was a huge success at multiple venues across the United States.

According to an official press release, The Void, “…was the #1 grossing film at multiple locations including the Village East Theater in NY and at the Arena in LA. Also, the Nitehawk in Brooklyn, and the Music Box in Chicago sold out all of its midnight shows. Overall, there were sold out shows across the board in the following markets over the weekend: New York (Brooklyn, Yonkers), Chicago, Miami, Texas (El Paso, Lubbock, Dallas), Lancaster PA, Salem MA, Columbus, California (Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Diego).

Said Tom Yagielski, SVP Domestic Distribution at Screen Media, “Considering most of these engagements were limited to late and midnight showings we are thrilled audiences are responding so strongly to THE VOID. With sold out shows in over a dozen markets, and near full houses in many others, we are optimistic this weekend will launch THE VOID as a perennial midnight film on the indie circuit.

The Void was written and directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski and stars Aaron Poole, Ellen Wong, Kathleen Munroe, Stephanie Belding, and Kenneth Welsh.

In THE VOID, officer Daniel Carter (Poole) happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road while he’s in the middle of a routine patrol. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late.
