Paranormal Activity 3 Sets Records
The seminal horror franchise returns for its third part and manages to destroy three records in the process.
First up, the movie has claimed the record of highest opening by a horror film by bringing in $54 million dollars in the United States alone (grand total of $80 million if you count international too). Keep in mind that this movie only cost about $5 million to make, meaning that everyone involved is laughing all the way to the bank.
Second, it has destroyed its previous film record of $40 million raked in at the box office.
Finally, it has set the record for best opening in October, surpassing the previous record of $50 million set by Jackass 3D last year. That’s just amazing. I can’t hate the movie for doing well and I’ll for sure rent it because I enjoyed the other two, but to be frank, I think Dr. Farnsworth says it best.
