‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Tops Slow Weekend

The Curse Of La Llorona

In another win for the horror genre, The Curse of La Llorona opened ahead of expectations at the domestic box office, scaring up $26.5 million to easily win the weekend. The movie couldn’t rescue the domestic box office from the worst Easter in 14 years as Hollywood studios held back releasing their bigger event pics because of Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, which is set to hit theaters Friday.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, April 21, are as follows:
