In the first year since 2004 to not have a Saw entry, Paranormal Activity 3 (reviews) opened at a staggering $54 million – around $10 million more than pre-weekend projections and a little more than speculated after Friday’s massive haul – which makes Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman’s threequel the biggest horror and Fall (September and October) opener of all time. It beat out Paranormal Activity 2 for the former, and Jackass 3D for the latter.
According to Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore, there’s no Paranormal Activity 4 currently in development, but “people certainly continue to be very interested in the franchise.” With a box office take like that, expect to see the saga of Katie and Kristi continue next Halloween.
If you caught it this weekend, don’t forget to tell the rest of Bloody Disgusting what YOU thought of the film.
