Weekend Box Office Forecast: A Haunting in Venice Won’t Scare Up the Box Office

Weekend Box Office Forecast: A Haunting in Venice Won't Scare Up the Box Office

In this weekend’s box-office forecast, we are going to take a look at how The Equalizer 3 will fare in its opening weekend. A Haunting in Venice enters the fray, pitting itself against the The Nun II sequel in its second weekend and the third installment of The Equalizer 3. Let’s delve into what A Haunting in Venice can accomplish in its opening weekend.

A Haunting in Venice: The Advantages

Encouraging Presale Trends

Presale trends are a promising indicator for A Haunting in Venice. Although not quite matching the fervor of Murder on the Orient Express, it outpaces “Death on the Nile” and the recent release of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3. These trends suggest strong initial interest to beat the latter movies mentioned.

Embracing Horror Elements

One notable advantage for A Haunting in Venice is its embrace of horror elements. This decision broadens its appeal beyond the usual crime thriller audience, potentially attracting horror and supernatural enthusiasts. The timing, as we approach the Halloween season, could further bolster its box office performance.

Kenneth Branagh’s Return

A Haunting in Venice marks the third installment in Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie adaptations, following the successful Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. Branagh’s return, both in front of and behind the camera as the iconic Hercule Poirot, is a magnetic draw for fans. His presence provides a reassuring assurance that the film will meet expectations.

A Haunting in Venice: The Disadvantages

Competition from The Nun 2

Releasing A Haunting in Venice in direct competition with The Nun 2, which opened last weekend with a strong $32.6 million debut, presents a significant risk. Horror movie enthusiasts may be drawn to the ongoing Conjuring franchise, potentially leaving A Haunting in Venice in the shadows. The horror genre isn’t known for longevity at the box office so it can be easy to oversaturate the box office with horror films.

Uncertain Fan Base

One glaring uncertainty is the strength of the audience’s investment in this franchise. While Murder on the Orient Express achieved considerable success, grossing over $350 million worldwide, Death on the Nile faced COVID-19-related challenges and a less enthusiastic response. The lack of a clear fan base makes predicting its performance a tricky endeavor.
