"Saw 3D" Slices and Dices Box-Office Competition, Debuts at No. 1 with $24.2 Million! 


The seventh installment of "Saw," billed as "Saw 3D," debuted at No. 1 with $24.2 million. Sure this one's still higher than last year's "Saw VI" but it still underperformed compared to earlier chapters in the "Saw" series (from 2 to 5) which all made $30 million each over opening weekend.

Is it time for a "Saw" reboot?

A much better scary film is "Paranormal Activity 2" which slipped to No. 2 this weekend with $16.5 million raising its total to $65.7 million (check out my interview with Katie Featherston for "Paranormal Activity 2" by clicking here).

Meanwhile, Summit's "Red" finished at No. 3 with $10.8 million. So far, the action comedy starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and Helen Mirren has raised $58.9 million.

Crossing the $100 million mark is the funny "Jackass 3D" which came in at No. 4 with $8.4 million. The 3D stunt comedy has raised its total to $101.6 million.
