“Halloween” Won the Box Office!

The new “Halloween” sequel debuted BIG over the weekend, easily winning the box office with $77.5 million.  “A Star Is Born” was a distant second, making another $19.3 million in its third week.


With all the Marvel movies and blockbuster sequels, it’s easy to gloss over how significant $77.5 million is for “Halloween”.  Here’s some context:

1.  The new “Halloween” had the biggest opening IN HISTORY for a movie with a female lead over 55 years old.  JAMIE LEE CURTIS turns 60 next month.

2.  It was the second biggest opening in October ever, behind “Venom”, which opened with $80.2 million just a few weeks ago.

3.  It also marks second biggest debut for a horror movie behind last year’s “It” remake, which had a $123 million opening.

4.  It was the biggest opening weekend for a “Halloween” movie . . . and it wasn’t really close.  Rob Zombie’s “Halloween”made $30.6 million over the four-day Labor Day weekend in 2007.

Here’s this weekend’s Top 10 . . .
