Indians love horror genre and numerous horror films have been hits especially in south cinema. Hollywood films like ‘The Conjuring’ also have a big audience down south and now the fourth film in this series titled ‘Annabelle: Creation’ is set to hit theatres on August 18.
‘The Conjuring 2’ did really well at the box office in Chennai making nearly Rs 3 crores in just two weeks.
The movie made nearly Rs 14 crores from Kerala and Tamil Nadu across all its versions. In Andhra Pradesh and Nizam area, it collected around Rs 5.5 crores totally. In fact, the movie was the second highest grosser amongst Hollywood films in 2016 in India.
Given that the previous three parts were super hits, the fourth part ‘Annabelle: Creation’ is also likely to strike gold at the box office in south India.
Director David Sandberg said, “The best part of being in a theatre with an audience watching the film is the series of three emotions they express: anticipation, when they’re whispering, “Is this thing coming?” or “No, don’t go in that room!”; when they get scared and jump and scream; and, finally, when they laugh with relief at each other for jumping and screaming. Then that’s what I’m hoping for.”
