Recommended Posts

In Russia, the horror flick opened to $1.7M on 1,744 screens and beat out all comps to come in actually higher than the first Conjuring and 96% above Conjuring 2. And in Australia, the fright-fest debuted with $1.1M on 170 screens. While the studio did not give comps on Conjuring 2 when it opened Down Under in mid-June, we looked them up — Conjuring 2 opened to $3M on 205 screens — a 68% difference. The studio, however, stated that was ahead of most comps there including Poltergeist($756K), The Devil Inside ($738K), Carrie ($662K) and Insidious ($365K).
