Saw 3D debuted as the weekend's No. 1 movie, but it still couldn't top sequel standards for the franchise. Although it generated $24.2 million - that's $10 million more than last year's Saw VI - the second, third, fourth, and fifth films in the series all topped $30 million over their opening weekends.
