Universal Pictures on Sunday estimated that the film from writer-director Leigh Whannell earned $29 million from North American theaters. Internationally, it picked up an additional $20.2 million. The Invisible Man carried a relatively modest budget, costing under $10 million to produce.
Sonic the Hedgehog slid to second place in its third weekend in theaters with $16 million. The Call of the Wild, with Harrison Ford, placed third in its second weekend with $13.2 million. And in limited release, Benh Zeitlin’s re-imagining of the Peter Pan myth, Wendy, got off to a bumpy start with just $30,000 from four theaters.
