Latest Stephen King Movie ‘Firestarter’ Debuts to Just Under $6 Million in Theaters

The latest Stephen King adaptation, the Keith Thomas-directed Firestarter blazed into theaters over the weekend, simultaneously available for free to subscribers of Peacock.

Not surprisingly, the availability of the film on Peacock cut into the opening weekend box office numbers for Firestarter, with the film scaring up $3.8 million in domestic theaters.

Here in the United States, the film opened in 3,412 theaters. Worldwide, Firestarter pulled in $5.8 million over the weekend, with $2 million of that total made internationally.

Meagan wrote in her review for BD, “While The Vigil director Keith Thomas does get Firestarter off to an energetic and engaging start, this reimaging ultimately fails to ignite.”

In Firestarter, “A young girl develops pyrokinetic abilities and is abducted by a secret government agency that wants to harness her powerful gift as a weapon.”

Ryan Kiera Armstrong (IT Chapter Two, “American Horror Story”) is playing Charlie in the new Stephen King remake, and Sydney Lemmon will be playing Charlie’s mother.

Zac Efron (Extremely Wicked), Michael Greyeyes (Blood Quantum), and Gloria Reuben (Lincoln, “Mr. Robot”) also star in Firestarter. Efron is playing the father of Charlie.

The film also stars Kurtwood Smith (Amityville: The Awakening, Hitchcock) and John Beasley (The Purge: Anarchy, The Sum of All Fears).

Firestarter has been adapted by writer Scott Teems (Halloween Kills, Rectify). The new movie hails from Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions and Weed Road Productions.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
