The premiere of Mystery in Venice was useless. The box office continues to be dominated by the horror of The Nun 2 with solid data.
“The Nun 2” has once again conquered the box office. In a tight race at the North American box office, the second part of the horror saga maintained its first place in its second weekend. With a budget of $38 million, the film has officially broken even and is facing a huge profit margin and the possible announcement of a third film.
With an estimated gross of $14.73 million, “The Nun 2” easily surpassed “Mystery in Venice.” A horror and mystery film that grossed a respectable $14.5 million in its opening weekend. Keep in mind that the final numbers for the weekend in the United States will be announced on Monday morning. And they tend to vary slightly. You need to be careful when checking the box office as the numbers can change a lot from one day to the next.
“Mystery in Venice” had no chance
The Warren File spin-off is registered a drop of just 55% over the weekend, which is a remarkably good showing for a horror film that grossed a total of $56 million. This result for The Nun 2 beats the typical industry trend of horror films posting second weekend drops of 60% or more. Additionally, despite its star-studded cast including Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot, Michelle Yeoh, Kelly Reilly and Tina Fey, the Agatha Christie crime thriller faced stiff competition from New Line Cinema’s horror sequel. In fact, he finally lost the lead he had gained on Friday.
