Giving new life to old monsters

‘The Invisible Man’ is screening at Liberty By Scope, Colombo City Center, Majestic Cinema – Colombo, Empire Cinema, PVR – Cinema, and Savoy - Colombo

As it turns out, old monsters can perform new tricks: After stumbling with “The Mummy” in 2017, Universal Pictures shifted strategies and succeeded over the weekend in rebooting “The Invisible Man,” which was No. 1 at theaters in the United States and Canada.

“The Invisible Man,” an H.G. Wells horror concept that first played on movie screens 87 years ago, sold an impressive $29 million in tickets, according to Comscore, which compiles box office data. The R-rated film, directed and written by Leigh Whannell (“Saw”), finds Elisabeth Moss contending with an abusive husband who terrorizes her after presumably faking his death. It cost $8 million to make.
