Blumhouse and director Sophia Takal’s Black Christmas remake hit theaters this weekend. And today we’re hearing via Deadline that the movie has super-bombed at the box-office with a terrible $4.4M opening weekend tally.
And of that wasn’t bad enough, the film has a CinemaScore rating of D+.
Rated PG-13 for violence, terror, thematic content involving sexual assault, language, sexual material, and drinking, the remake centers on
Hawthorne College which is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters–athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady)–prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one. As the body count rises, Riley and her squad start to question whether they can trust any man, including Marty’s beta-male boyfriend, Nate (Simon Mead), Riley’s new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt) or even esteemed classics instructor Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes). Whoever the killer is, he’s about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t about to be anybody’s victims.
Directed by Sophia Takal (New Year, New You) from a screenplay she co-wrote along with April Wolfe based on the original film by A. Roy Moore, this version of Black Christmas is produced by Jason Blum, Ben Cosgrove, and Adam Hendricks. It stars Imogen Poots, Lily Donoghue, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany, O’Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, and Cary Elwes.
