‘Annabelle: Creation’ looks to scare up the top spot at the box office

As always around this time, I start referring to the dog days of summer at the box office, which is exactly what we’re going to start experiencing this weekend, with only one film expected to make an impact. Here’s our prediction:

Annabelle: Creation is the second in the spin-off series from The Conjuring. The previous instalment in the doll-centric film was released back in 2014, and ended its run with $84 million. Seeing as how the summer has been pretty much dry when it comes to horror films, it’s likely audiences will turn out for Annabelle: Creation (the positive reviews so far will certainly help as well). Look for a first place debut with $32 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Dunkirk will remain in second place with $13 million. The animated sequel The Nut Job 2, while the choice for families, has very little going for it in term of buzz, and will have to settle for a third place debut with $11 million. Girls Trip will be in fourth place with $9 million, while The Dark Tower will close things out in fifth place with $7 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Annabelle: Creation – $32 million
2) Dunkirk – $13 million
3) The Nut Job 2 – $11 million
4) Girls Trip – $9 million 
5) The Dark Tower – $7 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!
