Halloween Weekend was a slow weekend at the box office this year.  Whether it be people going out for parties in costume or watching the World Series, they definitely did not make it to the movie theatre.

The final Saw movie which is Saw 3D (Part 7) was the number #1 spot holder this weekend at the box office.  It brought in about $24 million dollars.  That is good for the Saw franchise in which it is one of the biggest openings for the SAW films ever.  But compared to last Paranormal Activity 2 receipts last week or the Jackass 3D receipts the week before that, SAW did not do well.  Opening week, Jackass 3D made over $50 million dollars.  That is more than double of what  SAW did this week.  Maybe it is because JACKASS had flying dildos.

Paranormal Activity came in 2nd this week from being the #1 spot last week bringing in a little over $16 million dollars bringing it’s two week total to $65.5 million dollars.

Red came in at #3 again this week bringing in $10.7 million dollars for a combined 3 week total of $58.8 million dollars which surpassed its budget.  Barely.

Jackass 3D came in at #4 this week crossing the $100 million dollar mark bringing  in $8.5 million dollars for a combined 3 week total of $101.6 million dollars.

Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter” came in at #5.

The Social Network came in at #7.

The Town came in at #9 this week being on the top 10 largest grossing weekly list for 7 weeks now.

That’s it for this week.  Stay tuned for next.
