Doctor Sleep’ Eyes $25M-$30M Box Office Start, Will Turn Out Lights On ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

Last weekend didn’t start the fire at the November box office after Paramount/Skydance Media/Fox’s mechanical breakdown with Terminator: Dark Fate, which is set to lose $130 million off an estimated combined $325M production and global P&A cost and $29M stateside opening.

This weekend, Warner Bros in a rare move for its genre product opens Doctor Sleep, Mike Flanagan’s feature adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel and sequel to his 1977 tome The Shining, which is seeing a $25M-$30M start, enough to take the breath out of the James Cameron-produced Terminator sequel and take No. 1 for the frame. With Veterans Day falling on a Monday this year, the overall marketplace gets a bit of a boost.
