Insidious Chapter 2 claimed first place again on Wednesday with $1.24 million, representing a sharp 34 percent drop from Tuesday. The supernatural horror sequel has bagged an impressive $45.155 million in its first six days, pacing 4 percent behind 2010's Paranormal Activity 2. Due mostly to the super inflation of its opening day gross last Friday, look for a drop likely north of 65 percent this weekend.
Robert de Niro-starrer The Family posted $1.028 million yesterday to grab the runner-up spot. Declining 30 percent from Tuesday's take, the mob flick has now grossed $17.69 million since opening last weekend. BoxOffice anticipates a second weekend over $7 million.
Riddick slid 54 percent from Wednesday of last week to $0.55 million yesterday. Vin Diesel's sci-fi sequel has raked in $32.98 million in 13 days, putting it 28 percent behind the pace of 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick. The sequel is on track for a third weekend around $3 million.
Meanwhile, summer's last two big holdovers continue to hold well. Lee Daniels' The Butler was off 34 percent Wednesday-to-Wednesday with $0.501 million, pushing its domestic cume to $101.64 million. Warner Bros.' We're the Millers snagged $0.45 million yesterday, down 29 percent from the same day last week, to boost its tally up to $133.05 million. Those two films are expected to battle for a close race to fifth place this coming weekend.
