Director William Brent Bell’s The Boy sequel aka Brahms: The Boy II hit theaters this past weekend. And today we learned via Box-Office Mojo that the horror sequel opened in fourth place at the box-office, scoring a weekend tally of just $5.9M.
That said, Brahms: The Boy 2 only cost a reported $10 million to produce (and added $2.2M from international audiences for an $8.1M worldwide total) so it will no doubt make a handsome profit all said and done. Which I guess means we’ll be seeing The Boy 3 one of these days…
For the record, the original flick with Lauren Cohan scored a $10.7M opening back in 2016.
Rated PG-13 for “violence, terror, brief strong language and thematic elements,” it centers on a young family who moves into the infamous Heelshire Mansion, unaware of its terrifying history. Once there, their son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.
It stars Katie Holmes as Liza, Ralph Ineson as Joseph, Anjali Jay as Dr. Lawrence, Owain Yeoman as Sean, Christopher Convery as Jude, Natalie Moon as Pamela, and Fabio William as Brahms.
William Brent Bell directs from a script by Stacey Menear, who wrote the original. Matt Berenson, Gary Lucchesi, Tom Rosenberg, Jim Wedaa, Eric Reid, Roy Lee, and Richard S. Wright produce.
