‘The Invitation’ Hits #1 on the Box Office Charts with $7 Million Domestic Opening

Formerly titled The Bride, the Dracula-inspired horror movie The Invitation was released in theaters by Sony’s Screen Gems over the weekend, dropping fang into 3,114 theaters here in the United States. It was a relatively quiet weekend at the box office, but the good news for the horror genre here is that The Invitation became the #1 movie in the country this weekend.

The Invitation scared up $7 million domestically in its opening weekend, with the film’s current worldwide total now sitting at $8,600,000 (via Box Office Mojo). The film was able to pass Bullet Train, now in its fourth week of release, and it also passed fellow new release Three Thousand Years of Longing, with George Miller’s latest only making $2.9 million.

How much did The Invitation cost to make? The reported production budget is $10 million, so the film still has a ways to go in order to be profitable. Even still, a $7 million opening weekend with such a light marketing campaign is quite frankly more than we expected for this one, especially when coupled with reviews that mostly ranged from negative to middling.

Described as “a contemporary horror thriller,” The Invitation tells “the story of a young woman who is courted and swept off her feet, only to realize a gothic conspiracy is afoot.”

That “gothic conspiracy,” it turns out, involves blood-drinking, with Evie drawn into a world of vampires. This is very much a Dracula tale, only with a fresh new twist to it.

Here’s the full plot synopsis: “After the death of her mother and having no other known relatives, Evie (Nathalie Emmanuel) takes a DNA test…and discovers a long-lost cousin she never knew she had. Invited by her newfound family to a lavish wedding in the English countryside, she’s at first seduced by the sexy aristocrat host.

“But Evie is soon thrust into a nightmare of survival as she uncovers twisted secrets in her family’s history and the unsettling intentions behind their sinful generosity.”

Nathalie Emmanuel (“Game of Thrones”), Thomas Doherty (“Gossip Girl”), Hugh Skinner, Sean Pertwee, Courtney Taylor, Alana Boden, and Stephanie Corneliussen star.

Blair Butler wrote the original script, with revisions by Jessica M. Thompson.
