Pretty Scary

Insidious 2While I was off covering the TIFF awards brunch, James Wan’s Insidious Chapter 2 enjoyed a spectacular $41 million opening, despite the fact that no one much liking it. But of course box-office grosses are a metric of interest, not approval, and it seems that plenty of people were interested in seeing the latest horror movie from the guy who made The Conjuring.

(The first Insidious made $54 million in its entire domestic run, despite also not being terribly good. The sequel should top that by Wednesday. Let that sink in.)

Oh, also, Luc Besson’s The Family came in a distant second with $14.5 million, and Riddick dropped to third place with $7 million. I haven’t seen any of these movies. I should do something about that now that I have the time.
