James Wan's newest horror film has set a September box office record. Insidious: Chapter 2 has set an opening weekend record dominating the weekend with a $41 million debut. It still is behind Hotel Transylvania which currently holds the biggest September opening at $42 million, but Insidious now holds the title of the biggest single-day horror opening for a live action film.
Insidious: Chapter 2 beat out Luc Besson's The Family which opened at $14 million.
Starting to see exciting box office numbers for horror this year and they have each belonged to James Wan. Well played, sir.
