The final weekend figures are out, and The Nun just opened with $53.8 million over its debut weekend. This massive win, which also includes $77m in overseas grosses, follows on the heels of The Meg (which will cross $500m this week) and Crazy Rich Asians (which is taking a shot at the $175m+ domestic milestone and possible Oscar nominations). Unless Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born doesn’t ride its wave of Oscar buzz to become a babysitter-worthy hit next month, the WB express should keep on chugging until Christmas. With numbers like these, it hardly matters if Aquaman “saves” the DC Films franchise.
