Paranormal Activity 3 Breaks Box Office Records

You know Halloween is right around the corner when a horror movie dominates the box office, which is exactly what Paranormal Activity 3 did in its debut weekend. The scary flick took in an impressive $54 million, earning the record for highest Fall opening ever and best opening for a horror movie ever. Reel Steel was left in the dust, settling for a distant second with $11.3 million, while Footloose slipped to third with $10.9 million. Newcomer The Three Musketeers took fourth place with $8.8 million, and The Ides of March stayed in the top five by taking in $4.9 million.
