Paranormal Activity 2. Check out the chilling trailer here. And if you can't resist the spoiler, check out the plot here, you wimp!!

PARANORMAL Activity 2 came out on top at the box office this weekend, pulling in US$41.5 million (S$53.9 million) with its pre-Halloween horror story of ghosts caught on nanny cams.

The Paramount sequel was enough to scare off comedy stunt film Jackass 3D, which dropped to number two with US$21.6 million in ticket sales, according to weekend estimates by box office tracker Exhibitor Relations. Spy thriller Red with Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren took in US$15 million, moving down a notch in the weekend ratings to third place.

Hereafter, Clint Eastwood's dovetailing drama about three lives touched by death, opened in wide release, netting US$12 million, which put the movie starring Matt Damon in fourth place.

It overtook The Social Network, the story of the founding of Facebook, which came in fifth with US$7.3 million in box office receipts during its third weekend in theaters. Secretariat, the Disney movie about a racehorse that won the Triple Crown, was close behind in sixth place at US$6.9 million.

Life As We Know It, a romantic comedy about two singles thrust into the role of parents after their best friends die in a car crash, took in US$6.1 million for a seventh place finish. Legends of the Guardians, Warner Brothers' animated owl drama, dropped to eighth place with nearly US$3.2 million in ticket sales.

Ninth at US$2.7 million was The Town, Ben Affleck's fast-paced flick about a bank heist in Boston. Easy A, about a high school girl who lies about losing her virginity to improve her social standing, was number 10 with US$1.75 million.

From Straits Times, "Paranormal Activity 2 tops".
