The film has emerged as the biggest opener of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe and is showing no signs of slowing down.
The film traces the origin of Valak, the demonic presence that haunted the Hodgson family in The Conjuring 2. Directed by Corin Hardy, the film takes us back to 1952 when a young nun seemingly committed suicide by hanging herself in the Abbey of St Carta in Romania, Father Anthony Burke (Demian Bichir), and a young novitiate Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) are sent by the Vatican to investigate.

Epic World Premiere of #TheNun at The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last night. I recall reading that a young Ray Harryhausen first watched King Kong (1933) play at this legendary cinema, so to have a film of my own premiere here is a real dream. Here’s a few black carpet snaps.
According to reports, 'The Nun' is also reigning at the US box office and has earned $53.5 million in its opening weekend. With this, the film has already become a hit having recovered its budget of $22 million. The film is surely on a winning streak in the overseas market and has turned out to be the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film in as many as 19 countries.
