This weekend sees three new wide release films to counter last week’s three wide release films that had varying degrees of success. Warcraft, The Conjuring 2, and Now You See Me 2 all look to duke it out for top five spots against the onslaught of Summer films that hang on from week to week.
I just got out of a nearly sold out screening of The Conjuring 2 on a Thursday in a huge theater. Based on that, and the lesser attended, smaller screen screening of Warcraft I saw earlier this week, I’m picking The Conjuring 2 for the number one spot. (Now You See Me 2, does anyone think this movie is going to succeed/be good? Didn’t think so.) This parenthetical addressed, NYSM2 may contend against Warcraft for number 2.

- The Conjuring 2 – $35 million
- Warcraft – $22 million
