Big summer tentpole movies are facing difficulties at the domestic box office, as a horror film managed to surpass the latest Indiana Jones installment. “Insidious: The Red Door” debuted with an estimated $32.7 million, claiming the top spot for the July 7-9 weekend.
In its second weekend, “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” fell to the second position, earning an estimated $26.5 million. Despite receiving mixed reviews, “The Red Door” performed better than expected, becoming the second-highest opening in the “Insidious” series, behind “Insidious: Chapter 2” from 2013. The film, directed by series star Patrick Wilson, features the original cast, including Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, and Andrew Astor. Screen Gems, Stage 6 Films, and Blumhouse collaborated on the horror movie.
