"Freaky" tops North American box office for second straight weekend


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions' comedy horror film "Freaky" topped the North American box office for a second straight weekend with 1.22 million U.S. dollars from 2,057 locations, according to studio figures collected by measurement firm Comscore.

The box office this weekend has been the lowest since North American theaters' reopening in summer amid the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no new wide release from major Hollywood studios as Jackie Chan's Chinese action adventure film "Vanguard" is the only new wide release.

"Freaky" has grossed 5.6 million dollars after ten days in North America.

Directed by Christopher Landon and starring Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton, the low-budget film with a reported 6-million-dollar cost tells the story of a 17-year-old girl who unintentionally switches bodies with a relentless serial killer and has to race against the clock to reverse the curse.

The R-rated film holds an approval rating of 84 percent based on 176 reviews to date on review-aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
