Paranormal Activity 4 Leads Spooky Weekend Box Office

Halloween's just ten days away, and theaters are chock full of scary stuff. At the top of this weekend's box office chart is Paranormal Activity 4, with $30 million — well below what Paranormal 2 and 3 earned — followed by Hotel Transylvania in fourth place ($13.2 million), Sinister in fifth ($8.9 million), and Tim Burton's Frankenweenie in ninth ($4.3 million). The weekend's other opener, the James Patterson-inspired Alex Cross, also underperformed (it brought in $8 million less than expected), despite the presence of Tyler Perry. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck's Oscar hopeful Argo looks to be holding up surprisingly well in the number two spot.
