There was good news and bad news for The Last Exorcism Part II at this weekend’s box office. The bad news is that it bombed. The good news is that it was such a cheap movie to make, it won’t be nearly the money loser Jack the Giant Slayer is poised to be.

Either “Eli Roth Presents…” doesn’t mean nearly as much to the general public as “Guillermo Del Toro Presents…” or audiences didn’t consider The Last Exorcism a move that needed to be franchised because the non-found footage follow-up to the 2010 found footage hit floundered in fourth place with $8 million, so reports Box Office Mojo. Compare that to the original’s $20 million opening, and it's apparent The Last Exorcism Part II will be lucky if it even grosses half of what its progenitor produced. The “C-” Cinemascore it received certainly does not bode well, though »
