In a tighter-than-expected race, The Nun II narrowly overshadowed the debut of A Haunting in Venice, $14.7 million to $14.5M, per Deadline. For Haunting, the opening is higher than the $12.9M earned by Death on the Nile in 2022 but considerably less than the $28.7M raked in by 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express. Nile grossed $137M worldwide, while Orient finished with $352M, respectively.
The Nun II has earned $56.5M domestically and $158.9M worldwide, following a typical 60% drop.
Elsewhere, Sony’s Dumb Money managed just $27K per theater and has earned $217K worldwide ahead of its September 29 wide release. While the Nicolas Cage action comedy accrued $745K from 1,175 theaters.
Next week sees the release of Expend4bles and It Lives Inside.
