Don’t Breathe becomes a potential contender to become a high grossing movie in the ending summer weekends.
It’s nearly the end of summers and after a long and disappointing box office era with fewer hits than flops, Hollywood is trying to get the simmer worth of money with some last releases of the summer.
The box office has been ruled by DC Universe villain-oriented movie Suicide Squad primarily because no other movie has been able to perform well enough to surpass Suicide Squad’s constantly declining earnings.
Among the new released movies, Fede Alvarez mesmerizing home-invasion thriller Don’t Breathe has certainly taken the lead from Suicide Squad. The newest presentation from writer-director Fede Alvarez and co-writer Rodo Sayagues comes the tale of three young robbers stuck in a blind veteran’s house where they must survive through his maze of a house to come out alive.
The horror genre has performed particularly well among the superhero sequels and high budgeted action movie. The Conjuring 2, The Purge: Election Year and most recently Lights Out have not only performed well at the box office but also received critical acclaim.
Don’t Breathe is no exception. It currently stands at 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes as it hits approximately 2,900 screens, making it one of the best-reviewed wide releases in quite some time.
Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto, Jane Levy and Stephen Lang steer the story into a claustrophobic, edge of the seat thriller which keeps the fans anticipating the worst. The movie keeps finding clever new ways to complicate what initially seems like a limited setting with limited story options.
Like its name, it influences those classic reactions from the audience watching the movie is a theatre. The film is reviewed as a genuine scare which does not actually just lead with subtlety but also with anticipation in the characters and the audience.
