'Conjuring 2' scares up $40.4M, breaking sequel slump

The horror specialist, James Wan, who tasted success with films like Saw, Death Sentence, Insidious, The Conjuring and more, is back with Conjuring 2. His previous works in this genre speak volumes and he continues his great work in The Conjuring 2 as well. Nearly everything in the film is done precisely to up the scares and chills over the last film, without becoming a parody of the original 2013 release. "While there seems to have been a few in a row, we didn't think it was a pattern that was systemic". The movie has strengthen the "The Conjuring" franchise and we as well might see another movie soon.

The film earned a "B+" on CinemaScore and 46 percent of its audience was over 30. There's the suggestion, just as there was in the real-life case, that the seemingly possessed daughter (Madison Wolfe) could be making things up, but director James Wan, who helmed the original, doesn't do much with this idea. For those who didn't like the film he urged, "No worries, but please chill out".

My thoughts in all these movies is why doesn't this family just move? .

Next week sees the release of Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. The "Finding Nemo" sequel is expected to perhaps be Pixar's biggest opening ever.

"The Conjuring" can easily be called one of the best horror movies of all time. The movie is a treat for the horrors lovers and cannot be advised to a weak hearted.

Warcraft, directed by British music legend David Bowie's son Duncan Jones, debuted at an estimated US$24.4 million, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations. Where available, the latest worldwide numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.

Six years after the Amityville haunting on Rhode Island in 1971, the paranormal-tracking, husband-and-wife tandem of Ed (Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Farmiga) are whisked off to Enfield, England, for a three-day ghostbusting junket.

I didn't really understand the appeal of 2013's "The Conjuring". The MGM/New Line/Warner Bros. film, about a love born from tragedy, brought in an estimated $3 million on Friday, leading to a weekend projection of $9.3 million from its 2,762 domestic theaters.

Now You See Me 2 also underperformed slightly. It has grossed more than 61 million dollars in ticket sales after 10 days of exhibition. The phantom plague has become a buzzy term among studios executives after a spate of follow-ups and spin-offs, such as "Alice Through the Looking Glass" and "The Huntsman: Winter's War", landed with a thud.

"The Jungle Book", $2.7 million ($7.5 million international). The Conjuring 2 is good, don't get me wrong, but it looks even better by comparison.

"X-Men: Apocalypse", $25 million. He's a master of atmospherics, manipulating sight and sound to the point where you not only see, but feel what's unfolding on the screen.
