"Insidious: Chapter 2" may not have seemed like a particularly necessary sequel, but it justified its own existence this weekend by racking up an amazing $41.1 million according to Film.com.

Considering the horror flick was made for a paltry $5 million, it's safe to call "Insidious: Chapter 2" a runaway hit. Not so for Robert De Niro's latest paycheck film, "The Family," which managed only a so-so $14.5 million in its first weekend despite the presence of high profile co-stars Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Pfieffer. Maybe next time Bob should try playing a mobster living in a haunted house instead. Just to mix things up.

For a full run down of the weekend's box office top ten, including numbers for returning hits "Riddick," "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and "We're the Millers," head to Film.com.
