Annabelle Comes Home Box Office Day 1: It has hit the screens and as every horror film, this has found its target audience on day 1. It is clashing with Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 and that won’t be an issue because of the genre differentiation.
Previous instalment Annabelle: Creation bagged 44.50 crores during its lifetime at the box office, and it stands at 23rd rank as far as the Highest Hollywood Grossers are concerned. Creation received a mixed response at the box office, and even the current franchise hasn’t opened to all-positive word-of-mouth.
Annabelle Comes Home has collected 3 crores* on its day 1. The amount is good realizing it released a day before and amidst the onslaught of Kabir Singh. It will be interesting to see whether or not it will cross the 30 crore mark to enter our list of Highest Hollywood Grossers.
Dauberman, the screenwriter of the Annabelle films, IT, upcoming IT Chapter Two and The Nun, is making his directorial debut Annabelle Comes Home, which is produced by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films in the Conjuring franchise along with Conjuring universe creator James Wan, who has produced the last five films under his Atomic Monster banner.
“Having the opportunity to direct Patrick and Vera as Ed and Lorraine Warren was really a dream come true,” Dauberman said in a statement. “They know these characters so well and have such great ideas about how to work through a scene. It felt like getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari; they work so smoothly and know just what to do, on some things you just take your hands off the wheel and know you’re in great shape,” he added.
Annabelle Comes Home released in India on June 27th. This is the third instalment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful “Annabelle” films. It is released pan India by Warner Bros Pictures in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
