After gaining a $77.5 M on its debut, Universal and Blumhouse‘s Halloween earned the 2nd largest October opening weekend of all time, next to Sony‘s Venom.
The film, which stars Jamie Lee Curtis, only had a $10M budget and has now earned an estimated amount of $77,501,000.00 in US theaters. In terms of this movie genre, Halloween tops the October opening weekend chart followed by Paramount’s Paranormal Activity 3 at $53M in 2011.
The movie is expected to continually perform well in the box office these coming weeks, especially that Halloween is just around the corner.
The reboot takes place four decades after the infamous killing spree on that one fateful Halloween night in Haddonfield. Now, the masked killer, played by Nick Castle is on the loose and grown-up Laurie Strode, portrayed once again by Jamie Lee Curtis, is ready for their final encounter.
