The horror movie “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” topped the movie box office rankings in America, as cinemas began reopening their doors, after they were badly affected by the health crisis.
The new “Warner Brothers” movie, the third in the “The Conjuring” series, managed to overthrow another horror movie that was at the top of the “Box Office”, “A Quiet Place-2”, which saw a huge turnout last week.
In its first week, “The Conjuring” earned $24 million, a result that Warner considered positive, especially since the film is already available to subscribers of the HBO Max video-on-demand platform at no additional cost.
The story revolves around the struggle of two supernatural detectives, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, with diabolical machinations.
John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place-2” with his co-starring wife Emily Blunt grossed $19.5 million from Friday to Sunday, down from its first week’s $48 million revenue last week. But it’s nonetheless a strong spin on this Paramount film about a family living in an apocalyptic setting, where monsters reign.
It is expected that “A Quiet Place-2” will soon become the first movie to exceed the $100 million mark since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, which constituted a major blow to the seventh art, at a time when 75% of cinemas reopened their doors.
The third place went to “Cruella”, as the movie “Disney”, based on the story of the famous animated movie “101 Dalmations”, filmed with realistic vivid scenes starring Emma Stone, earned $ 11.2 million.
The animated movie “Spirit Untimed”, produced by “Universal”, came in fourth place ($6.2 million). Isabella Merced, voiced by a young girl related to a hippopotamus named Spirit, also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Julianne Moore.
