Sorry, Tyler Perry! Paranormal Activity 4 Takes Box Office Throne From Alex Cross!

But to be fair, the folks behind Alex Cross should have known better!

Despite the fact that Tyler Perry - who for the first time is headlining the flick without any other involvement - is known to pull in big bucks at the box office, even HE could not challenge the money-making Paranormal Activity franchise's fourth installment!

The found-footage horror flick came in number one in its debut weekend, making $30.2 million alone, while Argo shot up to two with $16.6 million, Hotel Transylvania with $13.5 million, and Taken 2 down with $13.4 million!

This, of course, left Alex Cross with - to be fair - a decent $11.8 million, but proved that beyond Perry's core audience, no one was too innerested!

And why would they be?!

It's Halloween season, after all!

And between Paranormal Activity and Sinister for adults, and Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania for the kiddies, there just doesn't seem to be too much room for anything else!

Better luck next time, boy!

    The money dues of "Paranormal Activity 4" in the international movie distribution exceeded "Paranormal Activity 3" charges for 11 percent.
    For some days of hire the film repeatedly paid back costs not production and advertizing. Budget of its only 5 million dollars.
    The movie "Paranormal Activity 5" will be issued in October, 2013.

    Perez and Barbara, your box office analysis makes you sound ignorant, childish and completely unaware of the business side of Hollywood; not to mention the difference between good movies and bad movies. Probably better for you to stick to your day job (i.e. rehashing other sites gutter slop with your own personal out-of-touch commentary and tons of typos / grammatical errors)

    While the Paranormal Activity films such more than my assclown, Tyler Perry is equally shitty. Even with this not being one of his own, dreadful pieces of cinema turd, its refreshing to see something he's done not on top. I wish people would open their eyes and realize what a talentless hack Perry is, if only he would use his power to make real films then mindless pieces of shit created to suck money out of morons.
