Even though its predecessor received mixed reviews, Paranormal Activity 3 still managed to come out on top this past weekend, bumping last week's robot-packed action film Real Steel down to the #2 spot.
The sequel prequel horror film took in $54 million for its first week, which established the new record for largest Fall opening (September and October). Real Steel came in second at $11.3 million while the Footloose remake raked in $10.8 million, down one spot from its debut. Summit's The Three Musketeers pulled in $8.8 in its first week as George Clooney's film The Ides of March rounded out the top five at $4.9 million.
