EVIL DEAD REBOOT SPOOKS U.S. BOX OFFICE

Sunday, April 07, 2013 - The remake of horror classic Evil Dead has scared up a storm to debut atop the U.S. box office.

The modern take on Sam Raimi's cult 1981 film, directed by Fede Alvarez, opened with a gross of $26 million (=C2£16.25 million), enough to leave animated caveman adventure The Croods and G.i. J oe: Retaliation trailing behind.

Early estimates suggest the two films both boast weekend takings of $21.1

million (=C2£13.19 million) to tie in second, although exact figures and

placings will not be determined until Monday morning (08Mar13).

Meanwhile, the 3D release of dinosaur action adventure Jurassic Park also

fared well, drawing $18.2 million (=C2£11.38 million) to land at number four, followed by Olympus Has Fallen at five with $10 million (=C2£6.25 million).
