‘Insidious: The Red Door’ Just Became the Highest Grossing Film in the ‘Insidious’ Franchise

In its fourth week of release in theaters, the Patrick Wilson-directed Insidious: The Red Door found itself in the #9 spot on the domestic box office charts this past weekend, officially crossing a major milestone for the franchise. The Red Door, primarily a sequel to the first two Insidious movies, is now the highest grossing film in the entire Insidious franchise.

The worldwide total for Insidious: The Red Door as of this writing is $174,381,584, passing Insidious: The Last Key‘s former franchise-best worldwide total of $167,885,588.

The Red Door has scared up $78 million of its franchise best total here in the United States, while a massive $96 million of the film’s total has been earned internationally.

Over the weekend, the film made another $3 million here in the United States.

The production budget for The Red Door was reportedly a mere $16 million, so the fifth franchise installment has proven to be incredibly profitable for Blumhouse and Sony Pictures.

The decision to pivot backwards and refocus on the Lambert family was a smart one, with audiences flocking to the theater to finally see a direct continuation of the first two Insidious movies. You can consider The Red Door a “legacy sequel” of sorts, and yes, we’re also feeling pretty old to realize that Insidious Nostalgia has already become a thing.

13 years since the franchise launched… where does the time go?! The more important question? What’s next for the Insidious franchise? A spinoff has already been announced. It’s titled Thread: An Insidious Tale, with Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani starring!

Deadline reports, “The story here is that of a husband and wife (Nanjiani and Moore) who enlist the help of a spell to travel back in time, such that they can prevent the death of their young daughter. The consequences, of course, prove to be severe.”

The franchise’s first spinoff film comes courtesy of Screen Gems, Blumhouse and James Wan’s Atomic Monster, and Jeremy Slater (“The Exorcist,” “Moon Knight”) is directing.

Slater also wrote the screenplay for Thread: An Insidious Tale.
