Annabelle: Creation Pulls In $4M On Thursday Night
Horror movies are good for business in 2017. Just the other day we wrote about the fact that horror movies in 2016 grossed over $1 billion. Well, this weekend’s new offering Annabelle: Creation has grossed $4m in Thursday night previews which is a record for the Annabelle franchise and looks to take the #1 spot for the weekend if it keeps this pace up. Having only cast $15M to make it is safe to say Annabelle: Creation will easily cross into the profit margin this weekend. The more horror movies make at the theaters the more horror we will see in them. Check out the trailer below and see if it’s a movie you should be checking out this weekend.
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
David F. Sandberg (“Lights Out”) directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote “Annabelle.” Produced by Peter Safran and James Wan, the film stars Stephanie Sigman (“Spectre”), Talitha Bateman (“The 5th Wave”), Lulu Wilson (upcoming “Ouija 2,” “Deliver Us from Evil”), Philippa Anne Coulthard (“After the Dark”), Grace Fulton (“Badland”), Lou Lou Safran (“The Choice”), Samara Lee (“Foxcatcher,” “The Last Witch Hunter”), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s “Without a Trace”) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s “Homeland,” “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy).
