While some still think the idea of remaking Evil Dead is sacrilege, US audiences have shown that they’re pretty happy about is, as the film has topped the box office with $26 million in its opening weekend. It’s a pretty good but not astounding start, although reports of a middling response from audiences may mean it’ll drop quickly down the charts.
The only other new entry was the re-release of Jurassic Park in 3D, which took $18 million in its first three days. That’s slightly behind The Phantom Menace but ahead of Titanic. With many being pretty impressed by the 3D conversion, it’s likely to do well over the coming days.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of April 5th-7th.
