CBS Films and Lionsgate’s hotly-anticipated Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (review) adaptation was projected to overperform in the $17M range this weekend but managed an astounding $20.8M estimated domestic opening! This is quite the start for the stealth horror anthology that’s reported budget is allegedly around $28M. If this is the actual budget, it’ll be a lot harder to hit the black and set the stage for a sequel. The $20M opening all but guarantees a $50M domestic run, but it will need some help internationally if it’s going to be profitable. We’ll keep our eyes on the numbers and update you accordingly.

In Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, “It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying tome.”
