The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ Defeats ‘A Quiet Place 2’ at Weekend Box Office

In a surprise box office victory, “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” triumphed over “A Quiet Place Part II” in the U.S.

The latest entry in Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Conjuring” series scared up $24 million in ticket sales from 3,102 North American venues, exceeding initial projections and easily leading domestic charts. Its results are especially strong because the film is readily available on HBO Max at no extra cost to subscribers.

Heading into the weekend, box office prognosticators expected reigning champ “A Quiet Place Part II” to lead again. The horror sequel, directed by John Krasinski, debuted last weekend to a pandemic-record $48 million and took in an impressive $58 million in its first five days of release. Even with competition from a fellow terror-inducing movie, “A Quiet Place 2” still enjoyed a solid sophomore outing. The movie generated $19.5 million from 3,744 theaters, boosting its total U.S. haul to a roaring $88 million. Overseas, “A Quiet Place Part II” added another $19 million, bringing its global tally to $138 million.
