'Halloween' Makes a Killing in Debut Weekend at Box Office!

Halloween review – a slasher classic you just can't kill off

Biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Overseas, Halloween will collect an estimated $14.3 million this weekend.

If all those "seconds" aren't good enough for you, the new Halloween had the biggest opening for any "slasher" movie, according to figures from Forbes. Laurie runs out of bullets, forcing her and Michael to go at it armed with knives.

North American moviegoers really like to be scared, and Universal gleefully accommodated them this weekend as its new release Halloween registered an impressive $76.2 million (Sh7.7 billion) in ticket sales, industry tracker Exhibitor Relations reported Monday.

Jaime Lee Curtis, who returned to the iconic role of scream queen Laurie Strode after starring in the original 40 years ago (not counting the three other sequels she appeared in before), took to Twitter to celebrate and added the hashtag #WomenGetThingsDone. "Halloween" surpassed "Paranormal Activity 3" ($52.5 million) for the best debut to date for Blumhouse. Carpenter served as an executive producer and composed the score with his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies. And the direct sequel to the original's reviews happen to be the franchise's best since that first movie. A Star is Born continues to have awesome legs, jumping above Venom and staying in second place with only a 32.2% drop from last weekend.

Rounding out the top 5 are "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween" and "First Man", which earned $9.7 and $8.5 million, respectively. That brings the film's domestic total to $10.6 million. Damien Chazelle's space epic, which holds a $60 million price tag, dropped roughly 46 percent in its second frame.

It's hard to say it any other way: Michael Myers made a killing at the box office this weekend. A24's coming-of-age skateboarding drama expands nationwide next weekend.
