Told You! "The Conjuring" Scares Competition, "R.I.P.D." D.O.A.

Posted on at


Other new releases did not fare well either.  "Turbo" could be the first animated flop of the summer with $21.5 million at the box-office.  The R-rated "The Conjuring" beat the DreamWorks Animation movie.  Heck even the 3-week old "Despicable Me 2" managed to sell more tickets with $25 million total.  

Even a sequel like "Red 2" starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich underperformed at No. 5 with $18.5 million.  

"The Conjuring" was my pick of the week, and I'm glad moviegoers agreed!  It's a fantastic film!  Here's my review again, and the Top 10 Box-Office list is below.  

1. "The Conjuring," $41.5 million.

2. "Despicable Me 2," $25 million ($35.4 million international).

3. "Turbo," $21.5 million ($22.6 million international).

4. "Grown Ups 2," $20 million.

5. "Red 2," $18.5 million ($7.6 million international).

6. "Pacific Rim," $15.95 million ($34.8 million international).

7. "R.I.P.D.," $12.76 million ($6.8 million).

8. "The Heat," $9.3 million.

9. "World War Z," $5.2 million ($12 million international).

10. "Monsters University," $5 million ($20.7 million international).
