  • New 'Halloween' Has A Record Breaking Opening Weekend

With 10 days to go until the holiday, including another weekend, the studio expects "Halloween" to enjoy a much longer life than typical horror films that usually drop off significantly after the first weekend. Adjusted for inflation, Halloween's $77.5 million debut weekend beats out the previous slasher movie record holder, Scream 2, whose $33 million launch in 1997 would be $65 million today, according to Forbes. Halloween smashed the franchise's previous record holder, Rob Zombie's 2007 remake of the '78 original, which took in $26 million Dollars.

I've sort of been making fun of the fact that we're to forget all other Halloween sequels that have been made since 1978, but considering the fact that I haven't liked ANY of those other sequels and I'm impressed with this one, I guess I need to shut up.

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

The new Halloween (2018) seems to bring 40-year showdown between unstoppable killer Michael Myers and Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) to a close for good.

Two of the most exciting milestones include biggest horror movie opening with a female lead and biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55.

The Lakers-Rockets clash culminated in a brawl
The extraordinary scenes overshadowed LeBron James's home debut with the Lakers, which ended in a 124-115 Rockets victory. Ingram and Rondo will start their suspensions on Monday night when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs .

The newly released Halloweenmovie has enjoyed a record-breaking opening weekend. It's the second highest horror opening of all time, behind last year's "It". That's the second-best October opening of all time, behind only Venom, which opened earlier this month to the tune of $80 million.

Meanwhile, Curtis has also opened up about what made her agree to reprise Strode after the disastrous Halloween H2O in 1998, telling the outlet Gordon Green's planned opening scene was delightful. 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).

"I am enormously proud of this film,"says Jason Blum".

"This is the 11th Halloween movie and it's bigger than any of the other Halloween movies".

Rounding out the top 5 are "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween" and "First Man", which earned $9.7 and $8.5 million, respectively.
