Paranormal Activity 2 scares competition to top U.S. box office

The thrilling sequel debuted at number one, stealing the title from Friday the 13th, which earned $40.6 million (£27 million) when it opened last year (09).

The success of the documentary-style Paranormal Activity 2 bumps outrageous stunt movie Jackass 3D into second place with $21.6 million (£14.4 million). Its 10-day total now stands at $87.1 million (£58 million).

Bruce Willis’ action release RED is at three ($15 million/£10 million), while Matt Damon’s supernatural film Hereafter, directed by Clint Eastwood, enters the countdown at four with $12 million (£8 million).
