Box Office: ‘Unfriended’ Opens with $656,000 at Latenights, ‘Paul Blart 2’ at $450,000

Universal’s horror thriller “Unfriended” has scared up $656,000 in 2,019 theaters in the U.S. in Thursday night shows while Sony’s comedy “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” has launched with $450,000 at 2,619 locations.

Unfriended,” which expands to 2,739 North American theaters Friday, has been tracking to finish the frame at about $12 million — or 40% of the $30 million that U’s Furious 7″ will take in during its third weekend out of the gates.

The digital-age chiller was produced for just $1 million by Blumhouse Productions — marking another profitable collaboration between Universal and the horror label following “The Purge” series and “Ouija.”

Box office forecasts have pegged “Blart 2” on track to debut to $16 million to $17 million this weekend when it opens at 3,629 theaters — far less than the $31.8 million that the original in the Blart saga opened with in 2009.

Furious 7” topped $262 million domestically on Wednesday — its 13th day in U.S. release.
