Patrick & Vera conjure up a big opening weekend

Don't be scared,Patrick.It's just money!

WhileThe Conjuring 2didn't quite equal its predecessor it came close which is saying a lot in this summer of underperforming sequels.It also helped that it's budget was only $40 million so it's already well on its way to profit.Contrast that to Warcraft's $160 million budget with a $24 million opening.Ouch.Still its foreign performance (nearing $300 million) should help it turn a profit.But one is reminded ofThe Golden Compass,another would be franchise that chose to end on a cliffhanger rather than telling a full story.Despite doing well overseas it never got a sequel.Maybe let your audience decide if they like your movie before ending with "to be continued..."?

None of the new limited releases did particularly well including our belovedThe Fitswhich earned $16K in just 4 theaters.EvenLove & Friendship&The Lobsterappear to have peaked last weekend but we'll see if they can hold screens or expand again next week.

Expect a ton of the current movies to lose all oxygen next weekend when probable behemothFinding Doryswims into town.
