It may not have impressed many, and our David S. Smith thought it to be very poor indeed [I liked it a bit more than some, but still felt it was a disappointment]
in his review, but The Nun packed them in at the box office, so much so that it’s currently sitting at $330M worldwide. This means that the $22M budgeted movie is the highest grossing movie in the Conjuring Universe. Directed by Corin Hardy, it was made on a budget of only $22M, which means it’s a huge success in terms of bums on seats.
What with a third Conjuring and a third Annabelle film coming, plus The Crooked Man and The Nurse set to return too, this is one franchise that won’t die for some time yet….
