Horror has reclaimed it's place at the top of the box office in a huge way! Insidious Chapter 2 opened with a insane massive $43 million dollars including a big time $20.5 million on Friday.
That's about double what insiders expected. And it makes it the highest horror debut of the year. The Conjuring (everybody's horror darling) and The Purge did $41.5 and $34 million in they're debuts.
Riddick pulled another $7.3 million which was good for number 3 (unless something crazy happens). Riddick has added $7.8 million in overseas money. So it's grossed now about $41 million. Besting it's $35 million budget. Something to remember is Vin Diesel pulls massive overseas totals. When this thing expands it's going to do massive business. Chronicles of Riddick did 50% of it's business overseas.
Elysium continues to do strong business. It grabbed another $2.2 million after several weeks. It's made $88 million USA dollars. Course, throw in the $115 million it's made overseas and it's done a healthy $215 million. Besting it's budget by around $100 million.
