Universal's reboot of the venerable horror franchise is on track to sell an estimated $77.5 million in tickets at 3,928 theaters in the USA and Canada from Friday through Sunday, winning the weekend and scoring the second-highest October opening ever, behind Venom's $80.3 million earlier this month.
The film is also the second biggest October opener, narrowly pipped by Venom which grossed $80.2m (£61.3m) earlier this month and the second largest R-rated horror ever, beaten only by It, which took in an eye-watering $123.4m (£94.4m) past year.
The movie sees Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode and picks up 40 years after the original. The new Halloween will also mark the series' best debut (blowing past the Rob Zombie remake's $26.4 million) and the second-highest opening for an R-rated horror movie, behind last year's It ($123.4 million).
Director David Gordon Green'sHalloween is now playing in theaters and we've created this spot for you to tell us and your fellow moviegoers what you thought about the highly-anticipated followup to John Carpenter's original. It fell just short of Tom Hardy's superhero film Venom, which had a $80.2 million opening a few weeks ago. Until this weekend, Curtis' biggest opening was for Beverly Hills Chihuahua at $29 million. The strategy to open it at the Toronto Film Festival and premiere it in America during Fantastic Fest probably helped, too, but make no mistake: Jamie Lee Curtis was a huge selling point, right along with the October release date. Critics' reviews have been largely positive, and audiences gave it a B-plus CinemaScore, which is solid for the horror genre. The film should continue to perform well this weekend ahead of Halloween, as well.
So, if you're just itching to unravel all the different moving parts left in the wake of Michael's latest rampage, here are the many elements of Halloween's ending and aftermath explained. What did you think?
