Paranormal Activity 4 Scares Up the Box Office


The fourth installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend with $30.2 million. However, the franchise is showing some signs of fatigue as Paranormal Activity 2 and 3 debuted to the tune of $40.7 million and $52.6 million respectively.  Despite this fact, the filmmakers are laughing all the way to the bank as this 4th installment only cost $5 million to make, and is still doing well overseas. In fact, Paranormal Activity 4's weekend gross is more than twice as much the budget of all the Paranormal Activity's added together. So it should be no surprise as Paranormal Activity 5 has just been greenlit.
