It was a crowded field at the box office this weekend, with no fewer than four major new releases making their debut, but when all was said and done "The Conjuring" rode a wave of viral buzz to an easy win with an impressive $41.5 million according to Film.com.

That was more than enough to top disappointing premieres from "Turbo" ($21.5 million), "Red 2" ($18.5 million) and "R.I.P.D." ($12.8 million), each of which went in the tank. Overall, the box office was down a full 20% compared to last year.

For a full run down of this weekend's box office top ten, including figures for returning hits like "Despicable Me 2" and "Grown Ups 2," head to Film.com.
