THE CONJURING finally topples DESPICABLE ME 2
Warner Bros. new horror show, THE CONJURING, topped DESPICABLE ME 2 in its third weekend. Sony’s new animated movie TURBO placed third, followed by GROWN UPS 2 and RED 2. DESPICABLE ME 2 became the top animated movie of 2013 and appears headed for 2nd place in all movies.   Universal’s new R.I.P.D. appears headed for the rocks which have taken down several big budget major studio movies this Summer. TURBO could be an underperformer as well. This Summer shows again that audiences will swarm to what they like and let big-budget, heavily-marketed movies they don’t like die a horrible death.
