‘The Nun’ Has Impressive Thursday Night Opening, Brings Home Franchise Best $5 Million

Published On September 7, 2018 » 488 Views» By Z-rowe »

Warner Bros. must be happy right now with the success of their latest installment in ‘The Conjuring‘ franchise. The fifth installment, The Nun, opened Thursday night and made a franchise-best $5.4 million.

According to the experts, it could have a $45 million opening weekend. If it can reach that number, it’ll be a record for the franchise. Currently, the first film in the franchise holds the record with a $41.8 million opening.

In total the films in the franchise have generated over $1.1 billion globally, which is absolutely insane because the movies work with low budgets. Every studio dreams of having a successful, low budget horror franchise and Warner Bros. has a golden one.

This huge Thursday night preview comes after the film was slammed by critics. It has just a 30% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but for some reason, horror movies can thrive even with poor reviews. It’s the one genre that doesn’t really need support from critics.

You can check out a trailer for the movie below…
