Dark Days for Dark Skies at the Box Office

Even with weak competition that saw the #1 film earn a meager $14 million, Dark Skies couldn't manage even a top-5 spot at the box office in its opening weekend, finishing in sixth place with an estimated $8.85 million. That's the smallest opening of producer Jason Blum's recent horror hits -- including Insidious, Sinister and the Paranormal Activity series -- since the original Paranormal Activity, which opened on just 12 screens in 2009. Still, with Blum's miraculous ability to squeeze high quality out of low budgets (reportedly only around $3.5 million for Dark Skies), his latest endeavor is already profitable and will only rake in more profits in the weeks to come.
