KRAMPUS | 12.4.15 | Universal | final domestic gross: $42,725,475

130 posts in this topic

I'm super glad the trailers are just teasing the design of the Krampus rather than outright showing it. 

 

The director's twitter does tease a bit more of its design though

This movie will either break out huge or be a massive flop. No in between.

Although it wouldn't make sense for this to be PG13 as the highest grossing horror movies are usually rated R.

A pretty kickass trailer, though I wouldn't be surprised if it flopped.

Decent trailer, rare for a horror film.

Eh? Horror films usually have the best trailers.

This has the worst release date of the year, first weekend in December.

Playing for Keeps, Armored, Brothers, Pyramid, Everybody's Fine, Punisher War Zone, Aeon Flux, Nativity Story, Turistas, Killing Them Softly, Homefront.

Literally can't find a hit that opened the weekend after Thanksgiving and I looked back to 2006.

It's been 10 years since a film that opened on that weekend grosses more than $10m. And it was Aeon Flux.

That's because whatever has been released in the post-Thanksgiving slot hasn't been very appealing.

If Universal and Legendary can make this look worth seeing, then it could do sizable numbers.

Personally, I'm predicting a $16 million OW/$49 million DOM.

Eh, Pyramid was barely released in theaters at all, somewhere in the 600+ screens

Looks like Dougherty nails the holiday spirit again.

Got the trailer at The Visit. Hopefully it’s around the same quality as The Visit, it looks like it could be fun.

The trailer seemed off to me. I think the trailer wanted to show off the horror aspect of the film but I think the actual film will have more comedy than horror.

I read an interview with a cast member and he called it a family film, that pretty much killed my interest.

It could be a 'family film' in the same way that the original Poltergeist was -- a family being terrorized in their own home by demonic beings. That's fun, if it's scary enough.

Yeah but Poltergeist came out at a time when you could get away with shit in PG13 rated movies ( and that one was PG). Now you can't get away with shit.

I'm pretty sure M. Night described The Visit as a family film at one point, and that's the second best horror this year sooo

Trick 'R Treat is such a good movie. Perfect for Halloween.

The Visit is pretty bad, also I wouldn't really call it a horror movie.

I dunno. Seeing that much of ol' Nana is the biggest scare at the movies I've had in ages.  ;)

Jurassic World is a PG-13 movie, as bloody and gory as it is. The ratings board has its quirks but filmmakers can get by with a lot, so long as it involves extreme violence and not sex.
