Welcome to our weekly box office reportwhat we do a little differently. Instead of focusing on money, FSR Senior Editor Christopher Campbell more interested in the estimated attendance or the number of tickets sold. Because the value of money changes over the years, but the value for real moviegoers remains the same. This week we are looking at the first box office numbers for the new releases The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and Unwavering Spirit.
If you want to watch any of the eight parts of The Conjuring Universe, you can do so right now on HBO Max. Yes, even the last entry, Conjuring: The devil made me do it… Second Witchcraft continuation right here, along with two others Witchcraft movies, three Annabelle films and Nun… No additional “premium access”. Okay, The devil made me do it not available to subscribers of the new cheaper HBO Max tier with ad support (but why would you pay for this version at all?). Anyway, I mention this because despite the easy access to Conjuring 3 At home, the film still grossed $ 24 million. first weekend in cinemas…
It would have been a decent catch for a sequel horror game in the old days. In fact, the reported gross amount is approximately 2.6 million tickets sold on Michael Chavez– the return of the cinematic incarnation of real-life paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). This is more than the previous issue of The Conjuring Universe. Annabelle Returns Home, which debuted on the big screen in June 2019, amassing around 2.2 million visitors on its first weekend. Until then, a loosely connected installment plan The curse of La Llorona, also directed by Chavez, attracted about 2.9 million people in the first few days.
Of course, the franchise is still far from its peak in 2018. Nun – and a little more than half of the original Witchcraft made eight years ago. Here’s a chronological look at The Conjuring Universe’s opening weekend ticket sale:
one. The spell (2013) – 5.1 million
2. Annabelle (2014) – 4.5 million
3. Conjuring 2 (2016) – 4.7 million
four. Annabelle: Creation (2017) – 3.9 million
five. Nun (2018) – 5.9 million
6. The curse of La Llorona (2019) – 2.9 million
7. Annabelle Returns Home (2019) – 2.2 million
eight. Conjuring: The devil made me do it (2021) – 2.6 million
Surprisingly, Nun it had the best debut and second best overall gross for the franchise, but has the worst reviews, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Conjuring: The devil made me do it Ranked fifth in reviews universe of the Conjuration, the lowest of these, to still have a positive result. And his audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes is currently tied as best in the franchise to the original. Witchcraft… For those who prefer Metacritic, The devil made me do it ranks fifth in the franchise ranking, which corresponds to Annabelle Returns Home… In addition, it only ranks third among weekend moviegoers surveyed Cinemascore, with grade B +, immediately after the other two Witchcraft movie.
Conjuring: The devil made me do it exceeded expectations according to forecast from Box Office Pro, which implies a gross equivalent of 2.1 million tickets. That would be a low deductible. Back to Box Office Pro long-term summer box office forecast for the last month, the film received a range of 1.6 to 2.7 million. So, he was near the highest point of potential. Experts really saw new Witchcraft The sequel, which opens in second place at the box office, is inferior to the second weekend of another horror sequel: Quiet place, part 2… But after this movie success last weekend, it fell fifty-nine percent and sold just 2.1 million tickets in the past few days, up from the projected 2.4 million.
Another franchise entry is also disappointing compared to his forecast: Unbridled spirit… DreamWorks Animation is the first theatrical Spirit efforts starting with the traditional 2002 animated film Spirit: Cimarron’s stallion… Box Office Pro expected the new film to reach a modest audience of around 790,000, but the actual audience size was closer to 680,000. But this does not go beyond the full range allowed by the site, which is expected to be somewhere between 550,000 and 980,000. Recently, however, something happened and Box Office Pro increased its performance for Unbridled spirit as their long-term projection range was low, around 220,000. Still, Stallion of Cimarron opened about 3.1 million tickets sold. And no other DreamWorks Animation release had such poor results on its first weekend.
Personally, I would not predict anything at all for Unbridled spirit considering this is yet another theatrical animation in the media franchise with a big presence on the small screen. DreamWorks’ Riding Spirit Free for eight seasons on Netflix starting in 2017, then a spin-off was released titled Ghost Riding: Pony Tales released two seasons in 2019 and another ongoing spin-off. Riding Spirit Free: Riding Academy dropped two seasons last year. This means that children can watch seventy-eight episodes at any time at home. Plus a 2019 Christmas special and an interactive special that was the last one Spirit thing to be dropped last December. Moreover, Unbridled spirit is essentially a retelling of the plot of the first Riding for free row.
This may be why reviews of the new feature were more inclined towards the negative side compared to the relatively positive reaction to the Oscar-nominated original. However, Rotten Tomatoes has an exceptionally high audience rating, and its Cinemascore, A, rating is the same as Spirit: Cimarron’s stallion almost twenty years ago. You can bet that if DreamWorks and Universal had just posted a new feature on Netflix, it would have been hugely popular. But families don’t often spend a lot of money to go and see something on the big screen that kids like to see at home in a different way. It doesn’t seem like many horror fans would prefer Witchcraft movie in theater than HBO Max.
Rounding out the new releases of this past weekend, Theo Anthony’s documentary All the light, everywhere (which is currently one of my favorite movies of the year) had one of the best screen averages ($ 2606) when played in just two locations. Christian Petzold’s last fantastic drama Undine, in its limited edition, on average ($ 491), did not perform well despite excellent reviews. Its initial volume is close to Petzold’s two previous films, but both were shown on only two screens. Very close to the top 10 of the weekend, despite being on less than a hundred screens, the action movie Mormon Witnesses sold about 17,000 tickets – more if I assume prices in his seats were below the national average.
Here are the top ten films this week by estimated ticket sales. [with totals in brackets]:
one. Conjuring: The devil made me do it: 2.6 million [2.6 million]
