Box Office: ‘Oculus’ Scares up $475,000 in Late-Night Shows

Relativity Media’s horror-thriller “Oculus” grossed an estimated $475,000 during its 10 p.m. Thursday and midnight Friday shows in the U.S.

The number was in line with recent horror films. “Oculus” is opening in 2,648 locations with projections in the $12 million-$15 million range for the weekend.

“Oculus” has a $5 million budget and is the first micro-budget horror film for Relativity, which paid $2.5 million for domestic distribution rights at the Toronto International Film Festival. Directed by Mike Flanagan, the film stars Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff.

Disney-Marvel’s second weekend of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and Fox-Blue Sky Studios’ “Rio 2” are contending for the top spot at the weekend box office with tracking for both titles ranging from high $30 millions to low $40 millions.
