Weekend Box Office: THE NUN II Takes $32M First Place Debut

The Nun II

Warner Bros. horror sequel opened with $32.6M in first place, though that’s -39% below 2018’s The Nun: $53.8M.

However, It’s above the openings for the last three films in the extended Conjuring / Annabelle / Nun cinematic universe:

  • +35% above 2021’s The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It – $24.1M
  • +60% above 2019’s Annabelle Comes Home: $20.2M
  • +23% above 2019’s The Curse of La Llorona: $26.3M

Overseas / global

The Nun II opened to $52.7M overseas and $85.3M globally, or 61% from overseas.

That global opening is -36% below The Nun, slightly better than its -39% domestic opening. The Nun opened with $79.3M overseas and $133.2M globally, or 59% from overseas.

The sequel’s top five overseas market totals are:

  1. Mexico: $8.9M
  2. Indonesia: $4.4M
  3. Brazil: $4.4M
  4. Italy: $3.3M
  5. Spain: $2.3M

The Equalizer 3

Last frame, Sony Pictures’ R-rated action sequel debuted in first place with $34.6M. That’s the #2 Labor Day weekend of all time, behind only 2021’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: $75.3M.

However, it opened -4% below 2018’s The Equalizer 2: $36.0M.

This weekend, it drops a steep -65% to $12.1M and second place.

That’s steeper than the sophomore drops for both the two prior installments:

  • 2014’s The Equalizer: -45%
  • 2018’s The Equalizer 2: -61%

Through 10 days, it’s earned $61.9M. That’s below both of its two predecessors, through the same point in release, despite opening above the original installment:

  • -3% below 2014’s The Equalizer: $64.2M
  • -3% below 2018’s The Equalizer 2: also $64.2M

Overseas / global

This weekend, Equalizer 3 fell -54% overseas, milder than its -65% domestic drop.

The third installment has now earned $45.8M overseas and $107.7M globally. The first two films earned $190M and $192M globally.

Top five markets to date are:

  1. U.K.: $5.9M 
  2. France: $4.4M 
  3. Germany: $4.2M 
  4. Australia: $4.0M 
  5. Spain: $3.2M

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3

Focus Features’ comedy sequel opens to $10.0M in third place.

That’s -44% below 2016’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2: $17.8M.

However, it’s +49% above May’s similar foreign-set comedy sequel Book Club: The Next Chapter – $6.6M.

2002’s original Greek installment had a slowly expanding release over the course months, rendering an opening weekend comparison inexact.

MBFGW3 attracted estimated audience demographics of 71% female, slightly lower than 76% for the second installment.

The third installment’s audience was also an estimated 55% white and 26% Hispanic. 

Jawan

In a surprise finish that many didn’t anticipate, Yash Raj Films’ Indian foreign-language action thriller Jawan opened with a $6.1M weekend in fourth place.

That’s -10% behind January’s Pathaan: $6.9M.

Along with its $1.3M Thursday debut, Jawan has earned $7.5M total.

Barbie

In its eighth frame, Warner Bros.’ comedy declines -42% to $5.9M and fifth place.

That’s one percentage point below its steepest weekend decline to date, -43%, and may prove to be the steepest upon release of Monday afternoon’s box office actuals.

All time, Barbie has now earned the:

  • #20 opening weekend: $162.0M
  • #7 sophomore weekend: $93.0M
  • #11 third weekend: $53.0M
  • #9 fourth weekend: $33.9M
  • #11 fifth weekend: $21.0M
  • #16 sixth weekend: $15.1M
  • #28 seventh weekend: $10.2M
  • #75 eighth weekend: $5.9M

With $620.4M total through 52 days, it now ranks as the #12 biggest movie of all time domestically, between 2012’s The Avengers with $623.3M and 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi with $620.1M.

Overseas / global

This weekend, Barbie declined -59% overseas in holdover markets, much steeper than its -42% domestic drop.

It’s now earned $782.2M overseas and $1.40B globally, or 55% from overseas.

Globally, that’s the #15 film of all time, ranking between 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.405B and April’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie with $1.36B.

Barbie’s top five overseas markets totals are:

  1. U.K.: $120.8M
  2. Germany: $56.5M
  3. Australia: $55.6M
  4. Mexico: $54.3M
  5. France: $47.6M

It’s also earned $35.1M in China.
