As expected, "Paranormal Activity 4" dominated the box office this weekend, pulling in a somewhat soft $30.2 million according to Film.com to win the top spot. That's significantly less than "Paranormal Activity 3" ($52.6 million) and "Paranormal Activity 2" ($40.7 million) made in their theatrical debuts.

"Argo," meanwhile, rode stellar word of mouth to a second straight second place finish with $16.6 million, dropping only 15% from last week for one of the best holds in Hollywood history. Alas, the news wasn't so good for Tyler Perry's "Alex Cross," which opened in fifth place with a disappointing $11.8 million.

For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Hotel Transylvania" and "Taken 2," head to Film.com.
