James Wan’s The Conjuring is the ninth highest grossing supernatural horror movie of all-time. The Warner Bros./New Line Cinema horror movie, from the mind behind Saw and Insidious, is going to surpass $100M at the domestic box office this weekend, with no signs of slowing down.
Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor, Warner Bros. took a chance releasing a horror film mid-summer when horror movies typically do not do well. The Conjuring is a summer horror movie release that is going into the record books. By the end of its miraculous run it could top $140M, which would put it ahead of Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, The Ring and The Grudge for the fourth highest grossing supernatural horror film of all-time. To put it in perspective, his Saw film took in $55M and Insidious made $54.
