New Line Cinema’s Annabelle: Creation has taken the ‘Conjuring’ universe past the $1 billion benchmark at the global box office, the studio announced on Friday.
Annabelle: Creation on its own has earned $110 million worldwide after it opened to a stellar $35 million earlier this month. In addition, the movie scored the highest industry opening weekend of all time for a horror film in numerous international markets.
The first ‘Conjuring’ film starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, grossed $318 million globally.
Next up in the series is the ‘Conjuring’ spin-off The Nun, which will be based on the character appearing in the second film. The Nun will be directed by Corin Hardy and will be released in theaters on July 13, 2018.
The studio is also in active development on The Conjuring 3 and The Crooked Man.
