The Conjuring 2 Scares Up $40.4 Million Debut

The Conjuring 2 easily led the way at the box office this weekend with $40.4 million... which is pretty much on par to the original's $41.9 million debut in 2013.  Worldwide, The Conjuring 2 has already made $90 million.

Now, for the elephant in the room...
The $160 million Universal video-game franchise tentpole, Warcraft, disappointed the US box office with a $24.4 million debut.  You may think this spells trouble for the fantasy video game epic... However, in China, it is setting some records... huge records... it has already made $156 million in five days. Making it the biggest opening for a non-Chinese title in China.  Worldwide, Warcraft has grossed $286.1 million.  One of those rare moments where a mostly US film (though, Legendary which is owned by Chinese business group Wanda, definitely helped open doors) makes more in China than in the states.

There was another movie to debut this weekend: Now You See Me 2.  It debuted to $23 million which is slightly under the original's $29.4 million.
