Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Unlocks $2 Million on Thursday Night
Universal’s “Insidious: The Last Key” launched with a solid $2 million at 2,220 North American sites on Thursday night.

The fourth film in the “Insidious” franchise is expanding to 3,116 domestic locations on Friday, with tracking indicating a weekend opening in the $17 million to $20 million range. The strongest interest is coming from younger audiences — particularly women.

“Insidious: The Last Key” is pegged to finish third behind the fourth weekend of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and the third frame of Sony’s “Jumanji,” which will probably be battling for the top spot with around $25 million to $30 million each. “The Last Jedi” has hauled $544.6 million in North America in its first 20 days — becoming the sixth-largest all-time domestic grosser — while “Jumanji” has totaled $202.4 million in 13 days.

Fox’s third weekend of “The Greatest Showman” will likely come in fourth with around $11 million, followed by Universal’s third frame of “Pitch Perfect 3.” Additionally, STXfilms

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Won’t Be Able to Haunt ‘The Last Jedi,’ ‘Jumanji’

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Won’t Be Able to Haunt ‘The Last Jedi,’ ‘Jumanji’
The first weekend of 2018 will see one new wide release in North America with Universal’s “Insidious: The Last Key” challenging potent holdovers “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

The fourth film in the “Insidious” franchise is the studio’s latest collaboration with Blumhouse Productions, which delivered a trio of low-cost horror hits last year with “Split,” “Get Out,” and “Happy Death Day.” “Insidious: The Last Key” will launch on Friday at about 3,000 domestic locations with tracking indicating an opening in the $15 million to $18 million range, with younger audiences — particularly women — showing the strongest interest in the film.

That’s likely to place “The Last Key” in third behind the fourth weekend of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and the third weekend of Sony’s “Jumanji,” which will probably be battling for first with around $28 million to $30 million each. “The Last Jedi” has grossed $531.5 million domestically in its first 18 days

Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli on why he turned down the chance to helm The Conjuring

Director Oren Peli recently revealed that James Wan wasn’t the first choice to direct 2013’s The Conjuring. Talking on the Post Mortem podcast, the Paranormal Activity director revealed that he was offered to direct The Conjuring, and also explains why he decided to decline:

“I kind of wanted to just kind of cash out and be done [after Paranormal Activity]. I got sucked into [producing] the Paranormal Activity sequels, then I had lunch with Steven Spielberg and he said, ‘Let’s do a TV show together.’ And we did The River. I kind of kept having different opportunities to get me sucked back in. And then I thought, ‘Yeah, I could find something to direct.’ I got sent a lot of scripts.

The 20 Scariest Movie Scenes of the 21st Century
Horror movies are so much more than the sum of its parts, but no genre is more dependent on the power of discrete scenes, self-contained episodes to make you feel like you’re sweating through what’s happening on screen first-hand. It doesn’t matter if a horror movie is an atmospheric slow-burn, or if it’s a symphony of jump-scares that alternates between peaks of sustained tension and long valleys of eerie calm, all of the most terrifying films rely on a few unforgettable moments. Some of these instances are long setpieces, some are just perfectly executed jolts, but all of them are exquisitely traumatizing microcosms of the movies that contain them.
