Paranormal Activity 2 Tops Box Office, Breaks Horror Film Record

Box Office: Paranormal Activity 2 Scares Off Jackass

Audiences are already getting in Halloween spirit! The spooky sequel Paranormal Activity 2 earned the top spot at the box office over the weekend with $41.5 million (perhaps that's not so surprising since the majority of you said you'd see it). It beat last weekend's champ Jackass 3D, which fell to the No. 2 slot with $21.6 million. What's even more impressive: Paranormal Activity 2 set a new record for the biggest three-day opening ever for a horror film.

Red fell one spot to take third place with $15 million, while Matt Damon's Hereafter received a boost as the film expanded into more theaters to earn $12 million for fourth place. Rounding out the top five was The Social Network, which took in $7.3 million.

i just love how my local newscasters won't say "jackass" when reporting the top movies...they keep saying, "johnny knoxville's latest"...
