Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Conjuring” universe is back at the box office this weekend, opening against the comedy “Yesterday” from Universal Pictures. On paper, “Annabelle Comes Home” had an easy weekend, then Disney surprised fans with a re-release of “Avengers: Endgame,” and “Toy Story 4” had a massive follow-up week in theaters.
Disney’s “Toy Story 4” topped the charts for the second week in a row with a $58M weekend across 4,575 locations. The fourth installment now sits with a $236.9M domestic total. Josh Cooley directed “Toy Story 4,” which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, and Kristen Schaal.
“Annabelle Comes Home” took second-place overall on the domestic charts, bringing in $20M at 3,613 locations. Gary Dauberman directed “Annabelle Comes Home,” which stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Mckenna Grace.
The Annabelle installments consistently score the lowest openings within “The Conjuring” universe. “Annabelle” opened in 2014 with a $37M opening weekend, and “Annabelle: Creation” released in 2017 with a $35M debut. “The Nun” currently has the highest-grossing opening weekend within the franchise, opening with $53.8M in 2018. “Annabelle Comes Home” opened two-day earlier than “Yesterday,” giving the film a $31M opening week.
“Yesterday” landed in third-place on the box office charts, not too far behind Annabelle, with a $17M opening across 2,603 locations. Danny Boyle directed “Yesterday,” and the movie stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, and Sophia Di Martino.
Disney’s “Aladdin” dropped to fourth-place this week, grossing $9.3M while remaining in 3,235 locations. Now in its sixth week in theaters, the live-action remake has a $305.8M domestic total. Guy Ritchie directed “Aladdin,” and the live-action remake stars Will Smith, Naomi Scott, and Mena Massoud.
Universal Pictures’ “The Secret Life of Pets 2” remained on the top five, bringing in $7M at 3,349 locations. The film has a running four week total of $131M domestically. Chris Renaud and Jonathan del Val directed “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” which features the voice talents of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Tiffany Haddish, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, Ellie Kemper, Pete Holmes, and Nick Kroll.
The next few weeks won’t be any easier for “Annabelle Comes Home.” Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” opens nationwide on July 2nd, followed by A24’s horror-thriller “Midsommar” on July 3rd. The following week is the debut of the action-comedy “Stuber,” and the thriller “Crawl.” The big releases at the end of the month are Disney’s live-action “The Lion King” remake, followed by Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.
