  • 'Halloween' Breaks Box Office Records With Massive October Opening

Even with a strong female lead, Blumhouse faced a backlash to comments of founder Jason Blum, who in an interview cited a lack of female directors to explain why none of his films were directed by women. According to reports, the latest installment of the franchise earned approximately $77.5 million in ticket sales at the domestic box office. Second biggest October movie opening ever. 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). It's the highest opening of her career, and that includes blockbusters like 1994's True Lies.

Jamie Lee Curtis is keen to get behind the camera for a horror movie after starring in the latest Halloween shocker.

Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Venom's deal with the devil has worked out for the comic book movie's worldwide box office, passing the $290.7 million mark this weekend, with a global total of $461.2 million - with China and Japan still set to let the devil into its markets. Between those three flicks, the Halloween costumes buy themselves.

20th Century Fox's adaptaion of the book The Hate U Give opened in wide release and took in $7.5 million across 2300 theaters (an expansion of two thousand new screens). The box office was looking sharp after going under the knife! He also insisted that this "Halloween" will be the final sequel. Damien Chazelle's space epic, which holds a $60 million price tag, dropped roughly 46 percent in its second frame.

The film is officially killing it at the box office, setting weekend records in America for the popular slasher genre of horror films. A24's coming-of-age skateboarding drama expands nationwide next weekend. The latter is super, incredibly exciting, but I have to suspect that there aren't very many of them: a report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film a year ago showed that women 50 and older comprised of 13% of movie roles, and sole female protagonists only appeared in 35% of studio features.
