As expected, Paranormal Activity 4 (review) came in at number one at the box office, proving that the franchise still has legs. It did, however, open much lower than its predecessors, grossing an estimated $30.2 million over three days. Its predecessor, Paranormal Activity 3, took in $52.5 million during its opening and, before that, Paranormal Activity 2 grossed $40.6 million. Perhaps the even numbered entries are cursed? (Update: Let’s hope so, because Paramount have already announced that Paranormal Activity 5 will be out in October 2013.)
Meanwhile, the other Blumhouse Production, Sinister, collected an additional $9 million bringing that film’s total to $31.9 million.
