Paramount’s “A Quiet Place — Part II” has become the first post-pandemic film to hit $100 million at the domestic box office and is within striking distance of the No. 1 spot on the weekend charts as Warner Bros.’ “In The Heights” is falling below pre-release estimates.

The John Krasinski horror film hit the big milestone on its third Friday in theaters, grossing $3.7 million from 3,515 screens as industry estimates peg the film for a No. 2 finish this weekend with $11.4 million, which would give it a domestic total of $108 million.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It Ending Explained
This article contains The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It spoilers. Read our spoiler-free review here.

The sun is shining brightly as Arne Cheyenne Johnson (Ruairi O’Connor) stands up before the courtroom. On this bright, seemingly glorious day in God’s country, the young man who once sacrificed his own body to a demon in order to save a child is about to receive his verdict from the jury. And, even before the film’s ending crawl explains what that sentence will be, he appears aware enough to know he’s about to go to prison. Yet the musical score of The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It swells with optimistic acceptance, and the scene is is unmistakably upbeat. How can this be a happy ending?

Because what can be so bad on a day like this after the long night everyone just endured? Seriously, think about it:

‘Conjuring 3’ Tops ‘Quiet Place II’ at Box Office With $24 Million Opening
Warner Bros./New Line’s “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” is helping to bridge the post-covid box office between Memorial Day weekend and bigger releases in late June, opening this weekend to $24.2 million from 3,102 screens as it also debuts on HBO Max.

This total is slightly above the series-low opening for the eight-film “Conjuring” franchise, which was $20 million for the 2019 spinoff “Annabelle Comes Home.” Produced on a $39 million budget, the horror film is on its way to turning a solid profit for Warner Bros. Reception for the horror film has been fairly positive with a 61% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a B+ on CinemaScore, consistent with “Annabelle Comes Home.”

Prior to the weekend, “Conjuring 3” had been projected for a $16-20 million opening, though analysts who spoke to TheWrap said that an opening in the low $20 million range was possible if the stronger-than-expected turnout that appeared on

‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ Competes With ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ To Scare Audiences

‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ Competes With ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ To Scare Audiences
Memorial Day weekend gave us proof that audiences are ready to return to the cinemas, as long as there is strong enough content to draw them in. With an overall weekend haul of $80.6 million, over 85% of which came from A Quiet Place Part II and Cruella, the domestic box office saw its best weekend since March 2020. While a repeat of the holiday weekend’s numbers is unlikely, AQP2 will battle it out with this week’s major newcomer, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, to lead another weekend that shows the business continues on its road to recovery.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the third proper Conjuring film, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning as the demonologist couple, and it is the eighth film overall in the Conjuring universe. The series’ top opener was The Nun with $53.8 million, followed by the first two

‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Battles ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ at the Box Office
In a box office battle of the scares, “A Quiet Place Part II” is facing off against the latest “Conjuring” installment for big-screen dominance.

Heading into the weekend, Paramount’s sequel to “A Quiet Place” appears to have a slight edge over the competition and should remain victorious on U.S. charts. The film, directed by John Krasinski and starring Emily Blunt, debuted ahead of Memorial Day with $48 million, a pandemic-era record, and ended the extended holiday weekend with a robust $58 million. In its second outing, ticket sales for “A Quiet Place Part II” are expected to dip around 50% from the weekend prior for a three-day haul around $21 million to $24 million.

At this pace, “A Quiet Place 2” should have no problem crossing the $100 million mark in U.S. theaters. That wouldn’t be much of an accomplishment in pre-pandemic times, but there hasn’t been a single film to

The season four premiere of The Handmaid's Tale sees June and her fellow Martha network members seek refuge at a safe house run by Commander Keyes and his young wife Esther.

Timo Tjahjanto in Discussions to Direct Remake of Train To Busan for New Line
Back in 2018, it was revealed that James Wan (The Conjuring) is producing and Gary Dauberman (Annabelle Comes Home) is writing a remake of Yeon Sang-ho's Train to Busan, and while the news front has been relatively quiet for the project since then, that silence has been broken today, with Deadline reporting that Timo Tjahjanto is "in negotiations" to direct the reimagining of the beloved zombie movie for New Line.

Fear Of Rain Was ‘Eye-Opening’ Experience For Star Madison Iseman

Fear Of Rain Was ‘Eye-Opening’ Experience For Star Madison Iseman
In Fear of Rain, Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home) plays Rain Burroughs, a young woman attempting to lead a stable life while she struggles with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Despite her best efforts, and that of her loving parents (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick Jr.), Rain is often not sure what is real and what is a hallucination — including Caleb (Israel Broussard), a fellow at school who takes an interest in her even as she wonders whether he’s real.

But when Rain becomes convinced that the seemingly normal teacher living next door (Eugenie Bondurant) is hiding a terrible secret in her attic, Rain goes against her parents’ advice and decides to prove she’s right, enlisting Caleb to help her even if she’s not even sure she can trust her own senses.

How Fear of Rain Breaks New Ground For Thrillers

How Fear of Rain Breaks New Ground For Thrillers
With the new psychological thriller Fear of Rain, actor turned writer-director Castille Landon takes a sharp turn away from her two previous directorial efforts, the family films Apple of My Eye and Albion: The Enchanted Stallion. Her third movie focuses on Rain Burroughs (Madison Iseman of the last two Jumanji sequels and Annabelle Comes Home), a young girl diagnosed with schizophrenia who isn’t sure what’s real and what isn’t — including the boy at school (Israel Broussard) who takes an interest in her.

Despite the entreaties of her parents (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick Jr.) and the threat of being hospitalized, Rain does believe in the reality of one thing: that Dani (Eugenie Bondurant), the seemingly normal teacher who lives next door, is doing something awful in her attic.

Filmed before the pandemic gripped the world, Fear of Rain touches on issues of mental illness and attempts to
