Sept.’s prologue leading up along Fall’s response towards those heavyweight blockbusters of summer’s time recent past holds at a Post-Labor Day lowering. In the box office’s top listings, ticket sales show a commercially lower aggregate than those on the tail end of summer, which had only a few salient revitalizers, including the comics adaptation "2 Guns".
But Box Office Mojo reports amidst Sept. 13 to 15 horror drama “Insidious Chapter 2” emerges with a frightful distance at the leader ranking on the boards above all ensuing top flick contenders.
Take second place “The Family” starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeifer. The mob-driven comedy-drama had on its debut weekend a low end $14. million.
A rank below “The Family” slots the film with its second weekend out in theater, the titular trilogy maker for the science fiction franchise of “Riddick”. With a stronger debut a week ago, $6.8 million spots the present box weight the third film could heft.
“Insidious Chapter 2” just did not outdistance the current movies in commercial queue. At a sweet second, it outperformed every Sept. highest gross in domestic theaters for milestone histories.
“Rush Hour” ($33. mil) and “The Lion King” ($30.1) fall closely below the haunting shocker starring Rose Byrne (from "X-Men: First Class") and Patrick Wilson. The Reese Witherspoon and – rom-com still holds a heartfelt third place at $35.6 after being unseated by the horror-drama with $40.2, which comes just below the theatrical curiosity that drove movie-goers towards 2012’s “Hotel Transylvania” at $42.5 million.
In horror genre companionship, “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” is a top ten Sept. highlight marking in $30. mil back in 2005.
