Sony is hoping horror fans turn out for The Possession of Hannah Grace next weekend, but that could be a tall order. The scare fest stars Shay Mitchell, Kirby Johnson, Stana Katic, Grey Damon, and Nick Thune. Diederik Van Rooijen directs.
The morgue set pic could be DOA with genre fans. The post Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally not a strong one for newcomers as audiences continue to feast on leftovers. Opening on around 1900 screens, this could struggle to even hit mid single digits. One comp that seems fair is Incarnate from two years ago, which opened the same weekend to $2.5 million.
I’ll say Grace manages to top that by a little bit and that should mean a debut outside the top five.
The Possession of Hannah Grace opening weekend prediction: $3.2 million
