It's an enormous hit...
The Conjuring has passed a box office milestone. Warner Bros. has announced that the film passed the $200 million mark at the box office, sitting at $220.5 million currently. That breaks down to $132.1 million dometically and $88.4 million overseas. The film is one of the highest-grossing supernatural horror films of all-time.
Warner Bros. Pictures President of International Distribution Veronika Kwan Vandenberg said in the announcement, "We're thrilled with the incredibly strong numbers we're seeing across the map, which is an outstanding feat for a film of this genre, especially one that is not a sequel or based on another property. Huge kudos to James Wan and his cast and crew for creating a fantastic film that has cast an electrifying spell in theaters around the globe."
The film had a budget of just $20 million. A sequel is currently in development.
