Paranormal Activity 3 had the biggest debut for a horror movie and the biggest October opening ever.
The movie lured moviegoers with a record-setting $52.6 million opening.
Monday’s final figure was slightly lower than the $54 million Sunday estimate from Paramount Pictures, but it’s still the biggest debut for a horror movie and the biggest October opening ever. The third film in the low-budget fright franchise is a prequel featuring found home-movie footage from 1988.
Real Steel and Footloose from Disney and Paramount, respectively, occupied the second and third places at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release.
