Box Office Breakdown: Paranormal Activity 4 Claims the Top Spot

Paranormal Activity 4

Horror films, to no one's suprise, continue to take in the most at the box office as we approach Halloween - the latest Paranormal Activity film is no exception.

Paranormal Activity 4 debuted at the top with a modest $30.2 million, which is still quite a profit for its $5 million budget, but nowhere near as impressive as its predecessors. Ben Affleck's sophomore film Argo held steady at number two this weekend with $16.6 million while Hotel Transylvania was bumped up a spot to number three with $13.5 million. Taken 2 took the biggest blow, dropping three spots to number four with $13.4 million. Alex Cross debuted at number five with $11.7 million.
