The month September of 2018 is already in the second position for overall September grosses behind last year’s huge box office numbers. September is not a glorious month for box office and it was 2017 which saw the first huge blockbuster with the film IT emerging as the highest collected horror film ever and Warner Bros are happy with that, making the second chapter of IT.
The Conjuring franchise is a high flying horror series and their highly anticipated sequel The Nun got a huge opening but ended up getting average reviews. Despite reports, the movie got the franchise-best box office numbers in worldwide market but fall short of the first part in the domestic market. The Nun made $114 million at the US Box office making it as the second highest grossing movie ever of September.
Though Warner Bros are lacking a 23% decline currently from the last year’s performance, big names like Fantastic Beasts 2 and Aquaman are promising to make high numbers end of this year. The record set by IT is a huge task for any upcoming films to collect and the upcoming Chapter 2 of the film is set to release on the same month of September in 2019 which is expected to possibly break its own record.
