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.
