Paramount’s Paranormal Activity 2 opened to $40.678M from 3,216 theaters ($12,649/theater avg.) for a supernatural horror movie record. The first Paranormal Activity had a staggered roll-out, but its biggest weekend was only a little more than half that of ‘PA2′ (Week 5: $21.104M / 1,945 theaters).
After opening in limited release last weekend, Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter expanded to 2,181 theaters and grossed a not so impressive 4th place $12.018 million ($12.333M cume). Rounding out the top five were Jackass 3D in 2nd place with $21.314M ($86.861M cume), Red in 3rd place with $15.035M ($43.518M cume) and The Social Network in 5th place with $7.277M ($72.908M cume).
