The terrifying nun from the Nun 2 confirms its appeal to the American public and beats The Equalizer 3 at the US box office with a debut of 32.6 million.
Not even Denzel Washington can do anything against the power of the horror nuns. Debuting in American theaters, The Nun 2 splashes at the top of the US box office with a more than satisfactory gross of 32.6 million collected in 3,728 theaters and an average per theater of 8,744 dollars. Excellent result for the ninth chapter of the horror saga The Conjuring which however fails to repeat the exploits of the first The Nun, which had opened 53.8 million in 2018. Here is our review of The Nun 2.
