Horror films just can’t seem to lose at the box office the past several years.
First place this weekend went to The Nun with the biggest opening of The Conjuring series yet with $53.5M. Globally it sits at $131M off of a $22M budget. Don’t be surprised if the next film in this series is announced soon.
Crazy Rich Asians came in second with $13.6M. Domestically it sits at $136.22M and globally is at $164.72M off of a $30M budget.
Third place went to Jennifer Garner’s revenge film Peppermint with $13.26M off of a $25M budget.
The Meg came in fourth with $6.03M for a new domestic total of $131.57M and global total of $491.97M off of a $130M budget. The most surprising thing is a sequel hasn’t already been announced.
Searching rounded out the top five with $4.51M and sits at $14.31M domestically.
This week’s releases include The Predator, White Boy Rick, and A Simple Favor.
