The film has also opened at number 2 at the US box office, grossing approximately $23million over the weekend, and is the number 2 film at the global box office, with an estimated $40million gross.

Irish filmmaker Lee Cronin gained the second-highest position at the UK/Ireland box office last weekend with Evil Dead Rise grossing approximately €1.7m. 

Released in Ireland and the UK by Studiocanal, Evil Dead Rise is New Line Cinema and Renaissance Pictures’ latest installment in the iconic horror franchise.

Written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground), the film stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl, Barkskins), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist, Vikings), Morgan Davies (Strom Boy, The End), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence) and introducing Nell Fisher (Northspur).

Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, Evil Dead Rise tells the twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.

Evil Dead Rise is produced by Rob Tapert (Ash vs Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) and executive produced by series creator Sam Raimi and star of the original Evil Dead trilogy Bruce Campbell, along with John Keville, Macdara Kelleher, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Romel Adam and Victoria Palmieri.

Cronin is joined behind the camera by Director of Photography Dave Garbett (Z for Zachariah, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), Production Designer Nick Bassett (Guns Akimbo, Sweet Tooth), Editor Bryan Shaw (Ash vs Evil Dead, Spartacus) and Costume Designer Sarah Voon (Chasing Great, Inside), with a score by Stephen McKeon (The Hole in the Ground, Primeval).

Evil Dead Rise is currently screening in Irish cinemas.
