'The Conjuring' scares up $41.5M to top box office

Posted:

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Moviegoers were ready for a fright this weekend, sending "The Conjuring" into first place at the box office.

According to studio estimates Sunday, the Warner Bros. haunted-house horror debuted with $41.5 million in domestic ticket sales, unseating the two-week champ, "Despicable Me 2." The Universal film dropped to second place with $25 million.

Fox's new animated offering, "Turbo," opened with $21.5 million, good for third place.

The Sony comedy "Grown Ups 2" held onto fourth place in its second week of release, earning $20 million.

Summit Entertainment's "Red 2," which stars Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren as retired CIA operatives, debuted in fifth place with $18.5 million.

The weekend's other new big release, the Jeff Bridges-Ryan Reynolds caper "R.I.P.D.," opened with a disappointing $12.76 million.
