Warner Bros. The Conjuring 3 pulled off an upset win at the box office this weekend with an estimated first place debut of $24 million. Heading into the weekend, The Conjuring 3 had been very much expected to open in a fairly close second place behind last weekend’s winner Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2, but eventually the two films ended up switching places this weekend.

This weekend the domestic box office took a major step on the road to recovery thanks to the one-two punch of Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part II and Disney’s Cruella. In what was easily the biggest overall weekend at the domestic box office since early March of 2020, Cruella and especially A Quiet Place Part 2 both exceeded their already relatively lofty expectations heading into the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Presently, on account of Spiral’s generally $4.6 million this weekend, which was adequate to hold the best position in North America, the arrangement just outperformed the $1 billion imprint in worldwide revenue. In any case, the greatest story of the weekend came from abroad, where Universal’s most recent Fast and the Furious entry, F9, rounded $162 million up its fuel-infused bow.
