The Invisible Man revamp has spooked its way to the top of the North American box office.

The critically-acclaimed thriller, starring The Handmaid’s Tale actress Elisabeth Moss, won its opening weekend (February 28, March 1, 2020)with a healthy $29 million debut, from a budget of less than $10 million.

The latest adaptation of the classic H.G. Wells novel, written and directed by Leigh Whanell, also haunted global audiences, picking up another $20.2 million outside of the North American market.

It replaces Sonic the Hedgehog at number one, falling to two with a $16 million take in its third weekend on release, while Harrison Ford’s The Call of the Wild is at three with $13.2 million.
