‘Truth Or Dare’ Crosses $90M Ww, Tops Blumhouse Cousins ‘Purge’ & ‘Sinisters’
As Universal/Blumhouse’s Truth Or Dare crosses $50M at the international box office, and $90M worldwide, producer Jason Blum says he looks forward to working with director Jeff Wadlow “forever.” This is the Kick-Ass 2 helmer’s highest-grossing film to date domestically ($40.7M), internationally ($50.1M) and globally ($90.8M).

Blum tells me, “Even though we have done it before, I can attest that getting a $5M movie to 90 million bucks worldwide is no easy feat. Truth Or Dare has surpassed the worldwide gross of the first installment of our Purge franchise and our first and second Sinister movies as well. And Jeff Wadlow deserves all the credit. I am looking forward to working with him forever.”

Truth Or Dare is an original micro-budgeted pic with a solid overseas base. Universal kicked off a staggered international release on the teen horror beginning April 12, and opened North America to $19M for the Friday the 13th weekend,
