Opening this weekend, and expected to take the top spot at the box office, is Time Warner's (TWX) Warner Bros. horror sequel "Annabelle: Creation," which is expected to open domestically in the $30M-$35M range. "Annabelle: Creation" already brought in $4M from Thursday night previews. Expected to finish in second place for the second week in a row is Warner Bros.

Also opening this weekend is Open Road's animated "The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature," which is expected to open in the $9M-$12M range. Open Road is a joint venture between AMC (AMC) and Regal Entertainment (RGC). Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) subsidiary Universal's female-led comedy "Girls Trip," starring Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah, is expected to earn an additional $7M-$8M in its fourth weekend at theaters. Sony's (SNE) fantasy epic "The Dark Tower," based on the Stephen King novels and starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, is expected to earn $7M-$8M in its second weekend at theaters, after winning the box office last weekend.
