franchise incantation and the horror genre still have good days ahead of them. After the great success of The hand, Insidious 4 or Scream VI, the nun 2 achieves the feat, (nearly) as well as the first opus to win the trifle Worldwide sales of $365 million for only 22 million budget.
The second work began with Worldwide sales of $85.3 millionof which 32.6 million only for UNITED STATES. It’s not as good as the US opening of the first film (53.8 million), but it remains a good result for a horror film that only cost around twenty million dollars. In comparison, talk to me (The hand) experienced a small opening of 10 million while Scream 6 receive 44 million in three days. An overall score slightly lower 100 million seems plausible for The nun 2 with a total score between 180 and 260 million worldwide. This would still make it a very big success for a horror genre – probably encouraging Warner Bros. Discovery to continue his expanded universe incantation.
The film received better reviews than its predecessor 46% positive reviews on review aggregator Rotten tomatoes – even if the critics network is experiencing great turbulence because it is accused of biased opinions on films. At Critical sensethe film registers a very low value 4.2/10 while IMDB attributes to him 6.1/10 – a pretty good review. “The Nun 2” will be in theaters on September 13, 2023.
