Posted by at 12:37 am on September 23, 2013

Insidious-Chapter-2-PhotosPrisoners had no problem taking the top spot on its opening weekend with $21.4 million. Hugh Jackman is at the point in his career where his movie draw a crowd on his name alone, but this R-rated thriller has also been getting some decent buzz, which helped. The movie had an estimated production budget of $46 million, so Warner Bros. should be happy with the results and the movie should continue to perform well over the next few weeks.

Insidious Chapter 2 has now earned a total of $60.8 million since opening and took second place this weekend. It cost $5 million to produce, so any money it makes is pure profit at this point. For those who missed the news earlier this week, a third movie is already in the early stages of development. All of the other movies on the top ten earned under $10 million, with The Family being the closest at $7 million in third place.

Next week sees the release of Don Jon, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Baggage Claim. Here are the top ten results for this weekend:

1. Prisoners – $21,430,000
