‘Paranormal Activity’ Takes Possession Of The Box Office Again


Most of the activity at the box office this weekend was strictly of the paranormal variety. “Paranormal Activity 4,” the yearly, automatic profit-turner, won out the weekend, taking in $30.2 million in its big debut weekend.

While this was the lowest opening for a “Paranormal Activity” since the first micro-budget phenomenon, a budget of roughly $5 million makes “Paranormal 4″ an easy success story.

Ben Affleck’s “Argo” managed to perform well in week two, adding $16.6 million to its total, which sits currently at $43.2 million.

In less fortunate box office news, Tyler Perry didn’t quite make the jump to drama like he was hoping. “Alex Cross” came in at a disappointing fifth place, earning only $11 million.
