Weekend Estimates: The Conjuring is a smash, R.I.P.D. bombs big time

Horror film "The Conjuring" hit #1 this weekend, making an estimated $41.5 million, with animated flicks "Dispicable Me 2" ($25 million) and "Turbo" ($21.5 million) rounding out the top 3. "Grown Ups 2" continues to astound intelligent people by making tons of money -- it earned $20 million to land at #4. "Red 2" ($18.5 million) underperformed at #5 compared to the original 2010 "Red," which opened at #2 with a take of $21.7 million. But the big news was the staggering failure of "R.I.P.D.": the $130 million would-be blockbuster opened at #7, with a take of only $12.7 million. It's the fourth $100 million plus blockbuster in as many weekends to flop with audiences, following the failure of such high profile films as "White House Down," "The Lone Ranger" and "Pacific Rim" (which landed at #6 this weekend, with a take of $15.9 million).
