This much anticipated Conjuring spin-off- is hitting the theaters this year, and this latest installment seems to be following in its financially successful predecessors.
According to a latest report from Variety, early tracking of the movie is suggesting that ‘The Nun’ will be on the pace to warn more than $32 million in it’s next month debut, while estimates from some other sources suggest that the number can go as high as $37 million.
An opening this huge would definitely keep The Nun on par with all the other movies in the conjuring franchise, all of which big were money makers for Warner Brothers.
Though these numbers are nowhere close to the blockbusters like Avengers Infinity War, the return on investment on movies like The Nun is crazy! Annabelle had a budget of just $6.5 million and went on to make a whopping $257 million world wide. The most expensive movie in the conjuring franchise was the Conjuring 2, which had a modest budget of $40 million.
Warner Brothers proved the success in the Horror movie genre with IT remake, with earning $123 in it’s domestic opening and a mind boggling %700 million world wide.
