Hollywood horror film Annabelle Creation has done very good business on its day 1 as the film has grossed 4.50 crores. It has topped the box office beating holdover release Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Annabelle Creation has done well in metros and in South India. This may come as a surprise for some but the trade was expecting it as well-made horror films will always have a market in India. The last film in the Conjuring franchise grossed 65 crores in its lifetime run and was a super hit.
In North America, Annabelle Creation was released last week. It has grossed $48.5 million in the first week against a budget of $15 million. The worldwide gross of the film is $102 million which has made it one of the most profitable films of the year.
