The First Omen Seeks To Bring The Horror Faithful To The Box Office

“The First Omen” centers on a young American woman who is sent to Rome to begin a life serving the church. Once there, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her faith and uncovers a conspiracy that seeks to bring about the birth of evil incarnate. The cast includes Nell Tiger Free (“Servant”), Sonia Braga (“Shotgun Wedding”), Ralph Ineson (“The Northman”), and Bill Nighy (“Living”).

While reviews haven’t dropped as of this writing, social media buzz from advance screenings has been very positive. /Film’s own BJ Colangelo said that it is “loaded with some scorching imagery that has been haunting me since I left the theater” on Twitter. /Film’s Bill Bria, also taking to Twitter, said the film “captures a beautifully disturbing ’70s horror vibe without ever feeling slavishly devoted to nostalgia or even its own franchise.”

Speaking of this franchise, it has been lucrative over the years. Donner’s original made more than $60 million in its day, a huge sum for the time, leading to a pair of successful sequels. 2006’s “Omen” remake also did very well, pulling in $120 million worldwide against a $25 million budget. So history is on this movie’s side. One of the only things working against it, perhaps, is the recent release of NEON’s “Immaculate.” Sydney Sweeney’s hit horror film deals with similar subject matter and will have been out for several weeks by the time “The First Omen” arrives.

Horror has been arguably the most important genre of the pandemic era when it comes to getting the box office back on track. Yes, Hollywood was always going to get back to releasing crowd-pleasing blockbusters with regularity, but movies like “M3GAN,” “The Black Phone,” and Parker Finn’s breakout hit “Smile” (among many others) have brought out audiences en masse to help fill in the gaps. As such, Disney is wise to continue to invest in theatrical horror. It’s certainly more beneficial than sending movies such as this directly to streaming.

“The First Omen” hits theaters on April 5, 2024.
