The Dark Tower isn't doing so hot, though

Despite being summer, it seems that a lot of people were in the mood for a grown-up horror film.

Box Office Mojo reports that Annabelle: Creation, the fourth film in The Conjuring series, has debuted atop the US Box Office this weekend.

The film grossed $35,040,000, which might be the lowest opening weekend the series has had so far, but is still more than double its $15 million budget (before you factor in marketing costs, of course).

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk holds steady in second place with a $11,405,000 weekend gross, while The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature fails to open to double figures with $8.9 million.

Last week's number one movie, the critically disappointing The Dark Tower, fell from the top to fourth place in its second week, grossing $7,875,000. The Stephen King adaptation has so far grossed just over $34 million in the US, well below its $60 million pre-marketing budget.

Rounding out the top five is The Emoji Movie, which made $6,580,000 in its third week.

The rest of the top ten consists of Girls Trip, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Kidnap, new entry The Glass Castle and Atomic Blonde in that order.

Check out the Aug. 11-13 figures below:

1. Annabelle: Creation — $35 million
2. Dunkirk — $11.4 million
3. The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature — $8.9 million
4. The Dark Tower — $7.9 million
5. The Emoji Movie — $6.6 million
6. Girls Trip — $6.5 million
7. Spider-Man: Homecoming — $6.1 million
8. Kidnap — $ 5.2 million
9. The Glass Castle — $4.9 million
10. Atomic Blonde — $4.6 million
