August 11 Weekend Forecast: 'Annabelle: Creation', 'The Nut Job 2'
The latest entry in The Conjuring series, Annabelle: Creation looks to benefit from its widest number of theaters for the franchise yet. Our models predict the film to perform slightly beneath the other entries in the horror series at $34.4M.
The Nut Job 2 appears to struggle with poor critical reception and the lack of impact of the first film.
Forecasts for this weekend are below. All dollar amounts are rounded to the nearest thousand, and only represent domestic opening. A larger confidence interval may represent greater variance. Confidence intervals may not be normally distributed.
|Title||Lower Bound||Mean||Upper Bound|
|The Nut Job 2||$8,523,000||$8,877,000||$9,032,000|
Annabelle: Creation marks the fourth entry in one of the most popular horror franchises today. Stronger reviews and lack of successful competitors will bolster the series’ continued success.
The Nut Job 2
Despite opening over 4,000 theaters, lack of enthusiasm for the film suggests failure to replicate the numbers from the first film.
