“The Conjuring 2” dominated the weekend box office with a whooping $40.4 collection and now its on the top.
The quality of this film helps it to dominate over other sequels that are released in this week. The film received a solid 73% “fresh” rating on critics aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and enjoyed an A- CinemaScore.
Jeff Goldstein, distribution executive vice president at Warner Bros said, “It starts with a really good movie.”
The New Line release nearly matched the first “Conjuring’s” $41.9 million debut, but its $40 million price tag is nearly double what the first film cost to make.
