Nia DaCosta’s ‘Candyman’ Approaches $70 Million in Theaters and Tops Streaming Charts

Nia DaCosta‘s Candyman, a sequel to the original classic that was directed by Bernard Rose, is now playing both in theaters and at home, available as a $19.99 Premium VOD offering as of this past Friday. In its fourth week of theatrical release, Candyman is currently sitting in the #4 spot on the domestic box office charts, continuing to add money to its total.

As of this writing, DaCosta’s Candyman has now scared up $53,192,695 at the domestic box office, with the film’s worldwide total to date adding up to $67,999,695.

How well is the film performing on streaming services? Well, those numbers are always a whole lot harder to determine than the box office numbers, as streaming services generally don’t provide us with adequate answers to those questions. But we do know that Candyman is currently #1 on Vudu’s streaming charts, a good sign for its VOD performance elsewhere.

A Vudu press release informs us, “The Jordan Peele-produced horror-thriller Candyman, which debuted Friday on Vudu, has already topped all streaming movies on Fandango’s on-demand entertainment service for the week of September 13 through September 19.”

Vudu’s top ten titles for the past week, in terms of revenue, are as follows:

  1. Candyman
  2. F9: The Fast Saga
  3. The Suicide Squad
  4. Black Widow
  5. The Forever Purge
  6. Jungle Cruise
  7. Don’t Breathe 2
  8. The Boss Baby: Family Business
  9. Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins
  10. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

DaCosta’s Candyman has a reported production budget of $25 million, so the film will no doubt end up being profitable for Universal once box office and VOD totals are combined.

Meagan Navarro raves in her review of Candyman for Bloody Disgusting, “Candyman impresses in how well it pays tribute to the original and its legacy while forging a very present, grounded path forward, organically expanding the mythology.”

In Candyman, co-written by Jordan Peele, “For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.”

“With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.”
