In a surprise to pretty much no one, a New Line Cinema horror movie performed well at the box office on Friday. The 1970s-set thriller The Curse of La Llorona—which is kinda-sorta-not-really a Conjuring-verse movie—pulled in $11.8 million on Friday at the box office and is heading for a weekend tally around $25 million. That’s above expectations for the pic, which has struggled critically and earned only a B- CinemaScore from audiences. No matter, the Conjuring-verse spinoff The Nun was a box office smash and that movie bombed with critics.
It’s a slow weekend overall as studios are wary of launching anything major a week before Disney drops Avengers: Endgame, which is sure to dominate the box office for weeks to come and will pretty much edge out everything next week. That said, Warner Bros.’s DC film Shazam! still performed well on Friday, grossing $6.2 million on its way to a global box office total above $300 million after three weeks in release.
