Battle at the Box Office 10/25

Paranormal Activity 2 followed on the heels of it’s surprise hit predecessor by having the highest ever opening for a supernatural horror movie.  With a budget of only $3 million, the movie opened with just over $40 million.  PA2 also must have stolen a lot of the Jackass audience, as it lost 57% from last week and dropped to second.  Red moved down one spot to third while fourth went to the wide release of Hereafter, although it was a fairly mediocre opening for a Clint Eastwood movie.  Everything else pretty much slid down to accommodate the new releases, with the exception of My Soul to Take, which fell off the top ten.  Paranormal Activity’s rival from last year, the venerable Saw franchise, is back this week with the supposed final chapter so we’ll have to see which horror franchise reigns supreme this Halloween.
