‘Halloween’ Scares Up Strong Opening Numbers

22 Octobre, 2018, 02:40 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

In fact, until this weekend, Jamie Lee Curtis' biggest opening weekend was $29 million for Beverly Hills Chihuahua. That is huge, and easily the biggest opening weekend for any of the principals associated with this film (David Gordon Green, Danny McBride and Jamie Lee Curtis). 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.

Overseas, the film kicked things off with $14.3 million across 23 markets, leading in Mexico with $4.9 million and following behing in the United Kingdom with $3.6 million, bringing its global pull to $91.80 million. Halloween cost just $US10 million, before marketing costs, marking another win for Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions, who co-financed the film with Miramax. "'Halloween' brings the franchise back to life in a fresh, relevant and fun way that is winning over fans and critics alike".

Universal's "Halloween" is the 11th installment in the series, five of which have starred Jamie Lee Curtis as iconic avenging babysitter Laurie Strode, who is now a grandmother in the newest take.

That being said, the $77.5 million gross also gives Halloween the second biggest opening ever for a horror movie, falling only behind It. It's also the biggest launch ever with a female lead over 55 years old. Plus, the critics have liked it, the film now at 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It picked up a solid $7.5 million, taking its total earnings to $10.5 million. The two hits, along with the strong showing of "A Star Is Born", have contributed to an unusually healthy month for exhibitors and studios.

The top 5 is rounded out by the family-friendly spooky sequel Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween in fourth place with $9.7 million and First Man in fifth with $8.5 million. Star came in second place this weekend with $18.9 million. Damien Chazelle's space epic, which holds a $60-million price tag, dropped roughly 46 percent in its second frame.

Halloween debuted in 3,928 theaters this weekend, pulling in an impressive per-screen average of $19,730. A24's coming-of-age skateboarding drama expands nationwide next weekend.
