Paramount’s “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” materialized with a respectable $1.2 million in the U.S. in its first late night shows Thursday at about 1,600 locations.
Initial estimates range for the opening weekend range from $15 million to $20 million.
Paramount’s “The Devil Inside” grossed $2 million in its late night shows and went on to gross $38 million in the first weekend of 2012.
Cold weather in the East impacted many theaters, most notably in Boston and New York, according to Paramount.
The fifth edition of Paramount’s “Paranormal Activity” series will be competing against Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” which has won the past three weekends, and Disney’s sixth weekend of “Frozen.”
“Smaug” grossed $4.1 million on Thursday in the U.S. for a three-week total of $213.3 million. “Frozen” is nearing a $275 million domestic cume.
