According to The New York Post, Candyman opened with an impressive $22.3 million this past weekend.
Candyman is a sequel to the 1992 original horror, directed by Bernard Rose. The new film, co-written by the likes of DaCosta, Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfield, follows a Chicago graduate student, whose thesis project on urban legends unwittingly unleashes Candyman.
DaCosta’s new film has also had the second-highest grossing opening weekend for a film directed by a black woman. First place is claimed by Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, with third secured by Tina Gordon’s Little.
