"Annabelle: Creation" scored the highest industry opening weekend of all time for a horror film in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Sweden, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovakia, and Hungary.
According to Box Office India, the horror movie has already earned Rs. 14 crore nett plus, including paid previews. It is a sequel to 2014's Annabelle and the fourth installment of The Conjuring series. And it is heading to garner more in this weekend. The flick has been released on 11th August in the United States but in India, the flick hit the theaters on 18th August.More news: Rick Astley joins Foo Fighters onstage to rickroll an entire festival audience
The story is well worn, the script is quite clunky, the characters make frustratingly unrealistic decisions, the acting is uneven at best (though the kids play a blinder), BUT for my money, the film has some effective jumps. While that's damn impressive in and of itself, what's even more incredible is that The Conjuring franchise (comprised of only four films at the moment), now sits at a global haul of $1 billion. It is the third prequel to The Conjuring Universe created by David Sandberg.
The film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Evil), Philippa Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (The Last Witch Hunter), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV's Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime's Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy). Going by the current trend with weekend shows picking up the total opening weekend collections of Annabelle: Creationare expected to hit double digits easily. Twelve years later, in 1995, the Mullins open their home to furnished protection for sister Charlotte and six girls left homeless by the closing of their orphanage. And soon they became the target of doll maker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
