The Boy Next Door is the #1 new release at the box office this week! It came in at #2, behind American Sniper, with $15 million (nearly four times its $4 million budget). This is Jennifer’s highest live-action opening since Monster-In-Law debuted in 2005! The success is extra-sweet, because Jennifer also produced the film. Congratulations, Jennifer!!!
During media rounds, Jennifer expressed how liberating it was to make a movie this way, so hopefully we’ll see her on the big screen again sooner, rather than later. Next up, she has Lila & Eve premiering at the Sundance Film Festival next week. You can buy tickets here.
