The WWE Studios film “Oculus” opened at $12,005,402 for third place at the box office in its’ opening weekend, trailing only Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2.
The movie did 52-percent of its’ business in the under-25 age group. It received above-average reviews (71 percent positive) but average viewer responses (56 percent positive).
The feeling is the film needs to hold up well in its’ second week, as the following week another horror movie (The Quiet Ones) comes out and will likely hurt it. Regardless, the film is already likely profitable due to the fact that it was a low budget movie.
WWE Studios is planning on releasing eight-to-ten movies throughout the rest of the year.
