Insidious: Chapter 2 tops US box office

Scores second-highest September opening in history

James Wan has made a convincing show of his blockbuster credentials ahead of Fast & Furious 7, with his horror sequel Insidious: Chapter 2 going straight to the top of the US box office.

The film enjoyed a huge opening weekend of $41.1m in the US, the second biggest September opening of all time behind last year’s Hotel Transylvania.

Having cost just $5m to make, the sequel has already made back its budget eight times over, which will be music to the ears of FilmDistrict execs.

It also leaves the film needing just $13.3m to top the box office take of the original film, suggesting that a third installment is surely guaranteed to be on the horizon.

Insidious: Chapter 2 left its nearest competitor trailing in its wake, with Robert De Niro comedy The Family taking just $14.5m down in second place.
