Universal and Blumhouse's Halloween, the 11th entry in the log running horror series, took the box office by storm. According to reports, the latest installment of the franchise earned approximately $77.5 million in ticket sales at the domestic box office. It also marked the second-best showing of all time for the month of October, trailing slightly behind the record of $80 million, set by Venom earlier in the month.
It also marks second biggest debut for a horror film behind last year's "It", which had a $123 million opening.
David Gordon Green directed "Halloween", which brings back Curtis as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as Michael Myers and essentially ignores the events of the other sequels and spinoffs aside from John Carpenter's original. "Halloween" cost just $10 million, marking another win for Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions, who co-financed the film with Miramax.
Next weekend, Halloween will try to defend its box office title by going up against Lionsgate's submarine action-thriller Hunter Killer, starring Gerard Butler, and PureFlix's faith-based drama Indivisible. Recognized in 2003 by Women In Film for the trail she blazed for female producers in all genres, Hill said, "I hope some day there won't be a need for Women in Film-that it will be People in Film". It's also the biggest launch ever with a female lead over 55 years old.
