DARK SHADOWS debuts in second place with $28.8 million for its opening weekend

Johnny Depp plays a cursed vampire in his new film, and Dark Shadows met the public under a bit of a curse of its own . . . following in the wake of the uber-successful The Avengers, which took the box office crown in its second week of release. Dark Shadows took in $28.8 million domestically, on the low end of expectations but a respectable second place given the tough competition. As for international box office, the UK’s Screen Daily notes, “Warner Bros Pictures International reported that Dark Shadows opened day-and-date with North America, grossing $36.7m from 5,664 screens in 42 territories, approximately 93% of the launch of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory from the same markets at the same point in release. The ongoing collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp remains a fruitful one.” Worldwide box office gross for Dark Shadows in its opening weekend was $65.5 million.
