Movie Earnings and Boxoffice
The Invisible Man crossed $100 million at the worldwide box office in less than two weeks. The movie earned around $68.4 million in the United States and Canada, and $54.3 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $122.7 million on 15th March 2020, just within two weeks of its launch on 28th February 2020.
Thus, The Invisible Man is indeed a chilling horror-thriller movie with a tinge of sci-fi that tells the story of a woman who tries to escape her past, but it follows her all the time, no matter where she goes.
It tells the story of domestic violence by merging it with a horror-thriller genre of movies, in a way that no other film can explain.
This movie has some pretty good jump scares, excellent performances from all the actors, great direction, cinematography, story line.
And it completely justifies the story written by H.G. Wells in his book, also showcasing some scenes as a reference to the 1933 movie.
If you love the horror/thriller genre of movies, this should be on a “must-watch” list. I think it is an excellent remake of the 1933 film with the same title, which was also great in those times.
The Invisible Man will keep the viewers on their toes at every moment, all the time, that’s for sure!
