The Nun II: Defying Critics with its Mesmerizing Storyline

Despite receiving negative reviews, The Nun II didn’t fail to attract moviegoers. The highly anticipated sequel, distributed by Warner Bros., dominated the North American box office in its opening weekend, generating an estimated $32.6 million in ticket sales. According to a review by Mark Kennedy from the Associated Press, the movie was criticized and predicted to be detrimental to the franchise’s reputation. However, horror films are known to surpass critical opinions, especially during their initial release.

Directed by Michael Graves and starring Taissa Farmiga and Storm Reid, the sequel experienced a lower debut compared to its predecessor ($53.8 million). Nevertheless, it achieved a decent opening. The The Nun movies are part of the Conjuring universe, a series that has accumulated nine films and a staggering $2.1 billion in box office revenue. The sequel also performed well internationally, grossing $52.7 million across 69 markets. Notably, it achieved the highest earnings in Mexico with $8.9 million, resulting in a global debut of $85.3 million. As fall approaches, there are several more horror movies scheduled for release, including A Death in Venice next week, Saw X on September 29, and The Exorcist: Believer on October 6.
