It was an exciting race, but The incantation: the devil made me do it successfully removed A quiet place II for the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The latest installment in the long-running conjure franchise made $24 million, which was more than enough to take the number one spot. The horror film has received mixed reviews from critics, with many arguing that it lacks the power of previous entries. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga’s performances as Ed and Lorraine Warren, respectively, were praised.
Extinguishing with Paramount A quiet place II Last weekend, many were impressed that Warner Bros. maybe made a mistake when releasing The incantation: the devil made me do it so soon after. In general, studios like to spread out their horror movies for fear of wearing out the same audience. That said, the box office for 2021 is still in its infancy and audiences are proving that they are ready and willing to return to cinema regardless of genre, which has been proven over the past few weeks.
