While it wasn't a record-setting opening by any means, at least Lionsgate can say Paranormal Activity 2 didn't destroy Saw 3D the way Paranormal Activity did to Saw VI a year prior. The seventh Saw garnered $24.2 million over the weekend to land at #1.
Paranormal Activity 2 dropped off 59% to land at #2 with $16.5 million, while Red stayed third with $10.8 million, earning it $59 million after three weeks. In fourth place, Jackass 3D brought in an additional $8.4 million, pushing it across the $100 million mark.
And in fifth this week, Clint Eastwood's Hereafter snatched $6.3 million to end up with a two-week total of $22.2 million. Take a closer look at the top five below:
- Saw 3D - $24,200,000
- Paranormal Activity 2 - $16,500,000
- Red - $10,800,000
- Jackass 3D - $8,425,000
- Hereafter - $6,320,000
