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.

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.
