The Evil Dead remake is the number one movie in America. The film, directed by Fede Alvarez and produced by the original Evil Dead trilogy's team - Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert - began early screenings at 10pm Thursday night.
On opening night, the film took in $11.9 million. It's cumulative weekend gross was $26 million, putting that at the top of the box office chart, beating Jurassic Park 3D which grossed an estimated $18.2 million.
Evil Dead's weekend performance beat out the original trilogy's cumulative gross at the box office (naturally).
