The Strangers: Prey At Night Coming to Blu-ray, DVD & Digital with Alternate Ending

The Strangers Prey At Night Arrives on Blu-Ray Combo Pack This June

  • Cinelinx
After a short stint in theaters, The Strangers: Prey At Night will find itself in your homes this May-June when the Digital and Blu-Ray Combo Pack release! More within...

On March 9, 2018, the sequel to 2008's cult classic horror film, The Strangers, released in theaters. After what will be a little over 2 months after its release, Universal Pictures will release The Strangers: Prey At Night on Digital in May and Blu-Ray Combo Pack in June. The film only grossed $24 million during its 32 days in theaters, with a heavy helping of that coming from Opening Weekend where it earned over $10 million. With Black Panther and A Wrinkle in Time pulling in most audiences, the film couldn't pull in as much as Universal was probably expecting. Either that or, as our review suggests, word of mouth got out about it being unable to live up to the first film.

Nevertheless, Universal is hoping

Box Office: ‘Black Panther’ Tops ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ in Disney-Dominant Weekend

Box Office: ‘Black Panther’ Tops ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ in Disney-Dominant Weekend
Black Panther” remained superheroic in its fourth weekend at the North American box office with $41.1 million at 3,942 locations, easily topping the opening weekend of fantasy-adventure “A Wrinkle in Time” with $33.5 million at 3,980 sites, estimates showed Sunday.

What had been pegged as a close contest among Disney titles for first place turned into a relatively easy victory for “Black Panther.” The Marvel title declined only 38% and generated the third-highest fourth weekend of all time, trailing only “Avatar” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

With $562 million in 24 days, “Black Panther” is now the seventh-highest domestic grosser of all time. It’s the first film since “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to lead the North American box office for four straight weekends and it’s grossed $1.08 billion worldwide, 21st highest of all time.

“A Wrinkle in Time” opened in line with Disney’s projections, which were slightly lower than the industry consensus. Critics

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Can’t Slow ‘Black Panther’ at Weekend Box Office

Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” is losing some of its magic at the U.S. box office.

Though Ava DuVernay’s fantasy adventure topped Friday’s box office, its fellow Disney title “Black Panther” looks to maintain its box office reign this weekend.

A Wrinkle in Time” opened on Friday with $10.2 million, including $1.3 million in Thursday night previews, which is just below earlier estimates of $13 million. With a mixed critical response, the $100 million-plus budgeted film is slated to take in around $33 million in its weekend debut, though that number could change depending on Saturday and Sunday matinee grosses.

Based on Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 classic fantasy novel, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The film, which received a B Cinemascore from audiences, follows a young girl (Reid), her step-brother (Deric McCabe), and a friend (Levi Miller

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Tops ‘Black Panther’ at Friday Box Office; Weekend Race Close

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Tops ‘Black Panther’ at Friday Box Office; Weekend Race Close
Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” looks to be dominating Marvel’s “Black Panther” at Friday’s box office, with “Wrinkle” at approximately $13 million and “Panther,” in its fourth weekend, heading for a Friday total upwards of $9 million.

That said, it’s anyone’s guess for the top spot at the weekend box office. As the two Disney titles face off against each other, Ava DuVernay’s “Wrinkle in Time” is projecting a $37 million opening for the three-day period, while Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” is estimating between $36 million-$39 million.

The latest tracking for “Wrinkle in Time” aligns more closely with initial numbers, which showed a range of $34 million to $37 million. Now, the fantasy adventure could land a weekend total up to $41 million.

With a varied critical response, “Wrinkle In Time” is struggling to attract the crowds necessary to make a profit on its budget exceeding $100 million. The film grossed $1.3 million during Thursday night previews,

Box Office: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Storms to $1.3 Million on Thursday Night
Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” grossed $1.3 million in Thursday previews.

The result is a mixed bag for the fantasy adventure, which is struggling to attract the kind of crowds it needs to make a profit on its sizable $100 million-plus budget. It is on pace to open to a dispiriting $35 million.

Its Thursday preview numbers are in line with those for “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” which started with $1.5 million en route to a $34 million bow, and “Wonder,” which kicked off to $740,000 before ending the weekend with $28 million. It’s hard to fully assess “A Wrinkle in Time’s” prospective box office results from late night previews, because it is a family film. Its target audience is more likely to turn up on Saturday and Sunday when school is out.

The Strangers: Prey At Night Director Explains Why He Didn’t Make It A Direct Sequel

In The Strangers: Prey at Night, director Johannes Roberts introduces us to a suburban family with two children and one problem.

Mother Cindy (Christina Hendricks) and father Mike (Martin Henderson) decide their troublemaker daughter – punk rebel Kinsey (Bailee Madison) – should be shipped to a boarding school some weekend’s travel away. With son Luke (Lewis Pullman) along for the ride, the clan makes a pit stop at Gatlin Lake mobile home for overnight rest and relaxation. It’s offseason, streets are prophetically empty – but, alas, three masked boogeymen lurk the grounds. “Pin-Up Girl,” “Dollface,” and “Man In The Mask” start hunting the family for sport because…frankly…it’s a night that ends in “y.”

As far as slashers, hunt-at-night thrillers and other stalker-slaughter flicks compare, Prey At Night is a familiar but well-made movie. Though one thing it’s certainly not is a direct sequel to what came before.

Review: The Strangers: Prey At Night is a Worthy and Wickedly Fun Sequel

If you would have told me back when the sequel was first announced that The Strangers: Prey at Night could potentially end up as one of my favorite films of 2018, I would have told you that you were completely off your rocker. And yet, here we are, with Johannes Roberts’ sequel defying all of my (admittedly low, but more on that later) expectations to deliver a more than worthy sequel to Bryan Bertino’s The Strangers that captures the unsettling nature of the original, and yet puts in some extra effort that makes Prey at Night still feel like it’s doing its own thing at the same time. As far as modern slashers go, Roberts has confidently crafted one wickedly fun thrill ride that reminds us that it is never wise to answer your door for unknown visitors, especially late at night.

The Strangers: Prey At Night Review

If there’s one thing Johannes Roberts’ pre-screening introduction confirmed before The Strangers: Prey At Night, it’s that he *obsessively* respects the profoundness of John Carpenter’s genre contributions – to the point where the pic is a stalkerish mixtape of all the filmmaker’s favorite bits.

Subtle hints Hammer-to-the-head homages evoke Halloween’s “The Shape,” roll with The Fog and grind Christine’s gears in an atmospherically overt love-letter to Carpenter that Roberts signs in blood. Dash in a bit of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre for flavor and you wonder what individuality this Strangers “offshoot” presents – until Roberts’ execution pushes such thoughts out of your mind. He may be riffing off recognizable horrors staples, but the director’s devotion to royalty is vicious and respectfully realized. Right down to a score you’d believe Carpenter recorded himself.

Film Review: ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’

Film Review: ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’
“Why are you doing this?” cries Kinsey (Bailee Madison), a teen-delinquent Wednesday Addams in an off-the-shoulder Ramones T-shirt, as she stares into the face of the killer she has just unmasked. The assailant, who appears to be not much older than Kinsey, looks right back at her and summons her best sickie-harpy grin as she says, “Why not?”

As motivations for homicidal maniacs go, this one carries a bit of Brando (“Whaddya got?”) spiced with a pinch of Manson. And the audience for “The Strangers: Prey at Night” may identify with the sentiment. Why go to a hideously obvious slasher movie, with no tricks up its sleeve beyond its use of songs like Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America,” and Air Supply’s “Making Love Out of Nothing at All” to accompany images of operatic slaughter?

Movie Review – The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018)

The Strangers: Prey at Night, 2018.

Directed by Johannes Roberts.

Starring Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, Martin Henderson, Lewis Pullman, Emma Bellomy, Damian Maffel, and Lea Enslin.

Synopsis:

A family staying in a secluded mobile home park for the night are visited by three masked psychopaths, to test their every limit.

Dollface, Pin-up Girl, and the man wearing a burlap sack for a mask (Sackman?) have returned (unnoticeably played by different actors this time around, changing nothing) for the sequel to Bryan Bertino’s 2008 horror success The Strangers (serving as only a writer this time as 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts takes over steering the ship) bringing to the silver screen another story based on true events (a term to be used loosely in this instance if there ever was one) of randomized senseless home invasion murdering that ditches realism for incredibly far-fetched nonsense increasingly growing more over-the-top every passing minute; by

‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ Review: A Lean, Mean Sort-Of Sequel That Was Worth the Wait

‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ Review: A Lean, Mean Sort-Of Sequel That Was Worth the Wait
There’s a scene in Bryan Bertino’s film “The Strangers” that handily encapsulates the film’s nervy brand of terror, one so good and simple that it served as the film’s poster image when the 2008 feature first hit theaters: it’s Liv Tyler, standing alone in her kitchen, looking out into what seems to be — what should be — an empty house. Behind her, a masked figure lurks, half-hidden in shadows and entirely unknown to Tyler’s character. When the scene unspools in the film, it’s a jolt of pure terror, with the masked man sliding into frame, then slowly moving out of it. Tyler’s Kristen McKay is none the wiser, and that the scene doesn’t lead to an instant slash of bloody violence is mostly incidental.

There will be violence later, plenty of it, but it’s the dread of it all, the senselessness of the criminals,

Box Office Preview: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Looks to Lure Kids as ‘Black Panther’ Stays Muscular

Box Office Preview: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Looks to Lure Kids as ‘Black Panther’ Stays Muscular
Disney will be facing off against itself at the North American box office this weekend as “A Wrinkle in Time” opens against the fourth weekend of Marvel’s “Black Panther.”

Black Panther” shows no signs of slowing down its box office reign, as estimates show Ryan Coogler’s tentpole has a good chance of coming out on top against Ava DuVernay’s time-travel fantasy, which is targeted to hard-to-track younger filmgoers.

The latest tracking for “Wrinkle” projects an opening weekend of $30 to $38 million at 3,980 North American locations. That’s slightly lower than initial estimates assessed, which showed a range between $34 to $37 million. “Black Panther” could bring $35 to $40 million in its fourth weekend.

Numerous schools start their spring vacations this week, giving PG-rated “A Wrinkle in Time” a few weeks to lure young audiences in the weeks leading up to Easter, which is on April 1 this year.

Interview: Director Johannes Roberts on The Strangers: Prey At Night and His Plans for 48 Meters Down

It’s been nearly 10 years since we were introduced to the maniacal masked killers in Bryan Bertino’s The Strangers, but they’re being resurrected on the big screen this weekend, with filmmaker Johannes Roberts (The Other Side of the Door, 47 Meters Down) at the helm. The sequel, Prey at Night, follows a family (headed up by Christina Hendricks and Martin Henderson) taking their troubled teenaged daughter (Bailee Madison) to military school, with their son, Luke (Lewis Pullman), in tow. As if tensions weren’t already running high between everyone, our favorite terrifying trio shows up to cause more murderous mayhem, forcing their clan to come together and fight back in an effort to survive the night.
