The Conjuring 3 beats A Quiet Place 2 with a $10 million box office opening

The third Conjuring film, titled The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, has opened to a lavish commercial reception. According to a Forbes report, the Michael Chaves director collected 9.84 million on its first day (Friday) in the US, and expects an opening weekend of $24 to $26 million.

John Krasinski directed A Quiet Place Part II compared to grossing 6 million on Friday.

It is the eighth film in the Conjuring Universe. Like its predecessors, it claims to be based on a true story. But unlike the prequels, it’s actually inspired by a real-life murder case. Arne Cheyenne Johnson admitted to killing his landlord, but said in defense that he was possessed by the devil at the time.

The Conjuring 3 will be released in theaters worldwide (apart from markets like India where theaters are not open). It also premiered simultaneously on HBO Max in the US.

The Conjuring 3 has received positive reviews, but only just barely. It has a 60 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus reads: “The Devil Made Me Do It represents a comedown for the major Conjuring movies, though Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson keep audiences engaged.”

Previously, based on positive reviews, A Quiet Place Part II grossed $58.5 million over the extended four-day Memorial Day weekend. Krasinski returned to direct A Quiet Place Part II. Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe reprise their roles from the previous film. Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou also joined the franchise with this film.
