'Halloween' scares up $77.5 million in ticket sales

22 Octobre, 2018, 05:26 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Internationally, Halloween brought in an estimated $14.3 million from 23 markets, with Mexico leading the way with a chart-topping $4.9 million opening followed by the U.K. & Ireland ($3.6m), Russian Federation ($1.79m) and Indonesia ($1.09m). Critics liked it a lot (80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and audiences dug it as well (the B+ Cinemascore is actually very high for a horror film). Greer's character also lives in Haddonfield, Illinois, an apparently easy drive from the psychiatric institute that houses Michael Myers, the maniac who nearly killed Laurie 40 years earlier on Halloween night - and who Laurie is certain will one day return to wreak homicidal havoc once again.

In the new horror sequel Halloween, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis' troubled, PTSD-suffering heroine Laurie Strode. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer. It picked up a solid $7.5 million, taking its total earnings to $10.5 million.

"The Hate U Give", about a wrongful shooting by a police officer, was the only other new movie in wide release, expanding to more than 2,300 theaters. The two hits, along with the strong showing of "A Star Is Born", have contributed to an unusually healthy month for exhibitors and studios.

A Star Is Born only dropped 32.3% from last weekend, bringing its domestic total to $126.3 million and $201 million worldwide, from a $36 million budget.

At the time, Trump drew boos when he said of Clinton, 'Here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics'. Kennedy have spoken at the dinner in years past, which traditionally resembles more of a stand-up routine.

Rounding out the top five is Universal's "First Man", which notched $8.5 million this weekend for a total of $30 million. In North America, the animated family film has amassed $66 million.

"Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween" also cashed in on the spooky spirit, picking up $9.7 million to land in fourth place.

"You take the nostalgia for 'Halloween, ' especially with the return of Jamie Lee Curtis, and you combine that with the Blumhouse brand and its contemporary currency in the genre and it just made for a ridiculously potent combination at the box office this weekend", said Jim Orr, Universal's president of domestic distribution. A24's coming-of-age skateboarding drama expands nationwide next weekend. The 2018 box office remains up 10.6 percent compared to the previous year.
