The Conjuring was made for approximately $20 million dollars and over-performed its estimates this weekend, according to Variety.
Coming in at number two was previous first-place title holder Despicable Me 2, which brought in an additional $25 million, bringing its total gross to over $276 million dollars. Wow!
Ryan Reynold‘s animated flick Turbo took the third spot with $21.5 million earned.
Rounding out the top five were sequels Grown Ups 2 and Red 2, which brought in $20 million and $18.5 million, respectively.
Disappointingly, Ryan‘s other movie that opened this weekend, R.I.P.D., opened to a dismal $12.7 million, after costing $130 million to make.
