‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Poised to Take No. 1 at Easter Weekend Box Office
With “Avengers: Endgame” coming out next week, Easter weekend at the box office has been notably slower than usual with an estimated 22% drop compared to last year’s holiday totals. But it is still looking like a successful weekend for Warner Bros. as it’s on track to take the top two spots on the charts with newcomer “The Curse of La Llorona” and the third weekend of “Shazam!”

La Llorona,” which was produced by New Line on a $9 million budget, earned $11.8 million from 3,372 screens on Friday and is expected to beat tracker expectations with a $26 million weekend opening. The low budget will make this a profitable film for Warner, though it will likely have a very frontloaded performance at the box office given the film’s tepid word of mouth and “Avengers” on the horizon. The film has a 34% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a B- from opening night audience polls on CinemaScore.
