Despite subpar reviews, The Nun II–the sequel to the 2018 The Conjuring entry–enjoyed an impressive opening weekend at the domestic box office, according to a report on Deadline.
Topping the domestic charts in its debut weekend, The Nun II earned nearly $33 million from 3,700 theaters–in the face of a “rotten” 45 percent score from Rotten Tomatoes and a C+ CinemaScore.
The Nun II–directed by Michael Chavez from a screenplay by Akela Cooper–stars Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene and Bonnie Aarons (who will appear at Connecticut HorrorFest Sept. 23-24) as the demonic Valak.
Set in 1956 France–four years after the first film–the sequel finds Sister Irene once again coming face-to-face with Valak at a local boarding school.
