Box Office: Audiences Heed "The Omen" In Record Numbers

by | June 7, 2006 | Comments

It appears the mark of the beast marks the spot, at least as far as "The Omen" is concerned. The movie’s stunt release date of 06-06-06 made for a devil of a box office return — at $12.6 million, "The Omen" raked in the biggest Tuesday returns in history, beating out "Meet the Fockers" by $4,000, according to Box Office Mojo.

The film, starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles, tells the story of a diplomat and his wife who are bringing up a child sired by the Prince of Darkness himself. "The Omen" currently stands at 31 percent on the Tomatometer, with critics saying it adheres a little too closely to the 1976 original (at 84 percent).

As Robert Johnson might say, "The (release) day keeps on remindin’ me/ There’s a hellhound on my trail."
