[Spoilers for The Curse of La Llorona]
The 5 movies within the Conjuring Universe — The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, and The Nun — have made a mixed $1.5 billion on the field workplace on a collective $118.5 million finances. Both numbers will go up after this weekend, the finances by a bit of and the field workplace by loads. The Curse of La Llorona, which was made for under $15 million, is “currently forecasting a $17+ million debut,” based on Box Office Mojo, with hundreds of thousands extra to be made worldwide. The quantity can be even increased if Warner Bros. marketed the movie as a part of the identical cinematic universe as Ed and Lorraine Warren, however for no matter purpose, the Weeping Woman weeps alone.
The Curse of La Llorona in all probability may have used the enhance, too, contemplating the critiques. It’s truthfully not as unhealthy because the 37 % score on Rotten Tomatoes (the performances are excellent, particularly Linda Cardellini and Raymond “Tuco from Breaking Bad” Cruz), but it surely’s additionally overly reliant on low cost leap scares and silly characters doing silly issues. But for horror film completists, it’s price a watch, if solely to see the way it suits into Conjuringverse.
For everybody else, I’m going to elucidate it now.
Produced by James Wan (who directed The Conjuring and, in fact, Aquaman), the 1970s-set La Llorona facilities on Anna Garcia (Cardellini), a social employee whose kids are being terrorized by La Llorona, a real-life presence in Mexican folklore. To get the ghost away from her youngsters, she seeks the assistance of Father Perez (Tony Amendola), who tells Anna that he didn’t use to consider in supernatural forces… till, cue the flashback, he met Annabelle. (The timeline checks out: Annabelle takes place within the 1960s.) She even makes an look within the film, presumably as an f-u to the opposite evil doll film. I’d say extra about Father Perez’s cameo, however there’s not rather more to it: he’s there to hyperlink the movies, and to attach Anna to somebody who may also help her.
Annabelle has now appeared in each installment of the Conjuring Universe besides one (The Nun), making her a Nick Fury-like determine. By the time The Conjuring 3 comes out subsequent 12 months, she higher be sporting an eyepatch.
I’m scared already!
