Weekend box office for July 19 - 21; Conjuring scares away Turbo, Red and R.I.P.D.

The Conjuring was the week's unexpected critical and commercial leader among major releases, taking the weekend's top spot with $41.5 million and stopping Despicable Me 2 from being #1 for the third time. The other new releases--Turbo, Red 2, and R.I.P.D.--fared less well, taking the third, fifth and seventh spots. Turbo premiered on Wednesday and took in $31 million over its first five days, but that's still a low debut for a Dreamworks picture. Puss in Boots opened with $34 million, but it also dropped only 3% in its second weekend, a feat I doubt Turbo will match. Red 2's $18.5 million was less than the original's $21.7 million opening, likely due to so much competition. Its cast may help it sustain attention similarly to Now You See Me, possibly bring it to a mediocre but not disastrous total. R.I.P.D.'s $12.7 million makes it the biggest summer flop so far, beaten by Pacific Rim which is struggling to reach $100 million. See how other movies performed here.
