When a movie doesn't debut at number 1, nowadays, it just will not hit number 1. Not true with Paranormal Activity which debuted at #3 at the box office, but is now #1, beating out saw VI.
The movie was made for 22,000 and bought for 300,000 and has now brought in 67 million since the movie opened 5 weeks ago. Paramount has spent about 10 million promoting the movie so they are getting a lot of money back in the red.
Someone posted on facebook after seeign the movie, they will never sleep the same way again. Hmm. Are you going to see Paranormal Activity? Have you seen it?-Dr.FB
