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

24 October 2018

Venom previously had that record, too, with 3.7 million people attending its opening day earlier this month.

Movie theater attendance was up overall the last few days, with this particular weekend (42nd of the year) posting record-breaking ticket sales of about 18.2 million, the highest on record (that is, since 1982).

October's box office receipts continue to impress as "Venom" and "A Star Is Born" deliver healthy numbers in their third outings.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Curtis shared one of her biggest regrets with the franchise had something to do with another milestone film in the series, Halloween: H20, or Halloween: 20 Years Later.

"It was the biggest opening for any movie with a woman over 55", she said.

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.

The coming-of-age drama grossed $249,500 during the weekend for a $62,375 per-screen average, with the studio planning to expand next weekend after the strong opening.
