Leatherface‘s return to the theater this weekend surpassed expectations by taking the number spot with a haul of $23 million. Which means, another sequel will soon be on the way.
The real story, however, is how well the film was attended by the ladies. The audience was 52 percent female and 64 percent under 25 year-of-age. Lionsgate is reporting that a third of those young girls stated that they were there to see singer Trey Songz try his hand at acting. Horror films are notoriously cheap to produce and when they hit with audiences, it leads to profits larger than anticipated. It only makes sense to revisit the franchise. There aren’t any plot details for the sequel yet but it will likely involve running and chainsaws and maybe Ne-Yo this time around. (Box Office Mojo)
