Weinstein stir crazy at New York hospital days after sex crimes conviction, spokesman says

Box Office: 'Invisible Man' Emerges With $29 Million Opening Weekend
Universal and Blumhouse's "The Invisible Man" materialized at the top of box office charts after debuting to $29 million in North America over the weekend. "The Invisible Man" is Universal's latest attempt to remake its classic monster properties, an effort that flailed spectacularly with 2017's "The Mummy" starring Tom Cruise. After that movie was commercially panned and became a box-office bust, the studio scrapped its plans to create an interconnected "Dark Universe." Instead, Universal took the concept in a different direction and focused on creating standalone stories unique to each otherworldly creature. That approach seems to have paid off since "The Invisible Man" has been praised by critics and audiences. The Elisabeth Moss-led thriller cost $7 million to make, not including marketing fees, meaning it's already a financial hit for the studio.
