Paranormal Activity 2 enjoyed the highest grossing weekend of all time for a supernatural horror movie, easily putting it at the top of the box office winners list, dropping Jackass 3D to a respectable (if you can ever refer to a movie like that as ‘respectable’) second place. Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter also expanded to a nationwide audience after a week in selected cities, scoring a quieter fourth-place finish, but it’s likely to stick around a bit longer.

1. Paranormal Activity 2 – $41.5m
2. Jackass 3D – $21.6m
3. Red – $15m
4. Hereafter – $12m
5. The Social Network – $7.3m
6. Secretariat – $6.9m
7. Life as We Know It – $6.1m
8. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole – $3.1m
9. The Town – $2.7m
