Fox Searchlight’s horror movie “Ready or Not” scared up a $2 million opening day at 2,244 North American locations on Wednesday as the studio got a two-day jump on the weekend. Fox Searchlight will increase “Ready or Not” to about 2,840 screens on Friday.
Also opening is “Overcomer,” from the creators of “War Room” via Sony’s Affirm label. Alex Kendrick stars and directs from a script he co-wrote with sibling Stephen Kendrick about a high school coach whose faith is tested. The film is expected to make around $6 million during its opening frame.
