WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Conjuring 2 tops the chart with 40.4MM, which means it should make a profit in theatres if it comes anywhere close to the original's global sales, despite doubling the original's budget to 40MM. Warcraft places with 24.4MM, which looks like a bomb against a 160MM budget... but it's taken in a massive 261.8MM in overseas markets already, so maybe not. Now You See Me 2 shows with 23MM against a reported 90MM budget, placing it in the ranks of so many underperforming sequels this year. You know, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which skidded 58 percent to take 14.8MM in the fouth slot. And X-Men: Apocalypse, which rounds out the Top Five with 10MM on a 56 percent drop; although I thought it was alright, it may end up the second-lowest grossing installment of the series (First Class, which is ironically one of the better installments).
