Now in its third week of release, Ti West‘s slasher X is still hanging in there on the box office charts, shedding theaters this past weekend but nevertheless hitting a nice little milestone.
Starring Mia Goth, X has now passed $10 million at the domestic box office, hitting $10,999,907 as of this morning. That’s the worldwide total, almost all of it made domestically.
X is currently playing in 1,799 theaters across the country, originally opening in 2,865 theaters back on March 18. Even losing over 1,000 theaters, it added over $1 million to its total over the weekend. You can’t ask for much more from an outside-the-box slasher that was always going to struggle with mass appeal, and the film’s low budget certainly doesn’t hurt.
The good news here is that a prequel to X has been ordered and in fact it’s already been filmed, with a follow-up titled Pearl teased after the end credits of X in theaters. Rather than a post-credits scene we were treated to an entire teaser trailer, with the upcoming Pearl centered on the movie’s villain. Mia Goth will reprise the role of Pearl, the film set decades prior to X.
Ti West and A24’s X is next headed to Blu-ray and DVD on May 24, 2022.
“A group of actors set out to make an adult film in rural Texas under the noses of their reclusive hosts — an elderly couple with a farm and boarding house for rent. But when the couple catches their young guests in the act, the cast finds themselves in a desperate fight for their lives in this tantalizing slasher from writer-director Ti West.”
