‘Halloween’ grabs one of the biggest horror openings ever

That means Halloween was pretty heavily frontloaded, but also Universal could be playing it cool with its estimate and lowballing the weekend total. Of course, last week Box Office Pro and others overshot the expectation with the call that Halloween would gross $80 million, basically tying with Venom's attendance record of 9.1 million people. Halloween's opening is now the #2 highest opening in October, behind Venom by just a few million dollars, and did set the record for the best opening of Blumhouse Productions by besting Paranormal Activity 3's $52.5 million from 2011.

Weekend estimates for Halloween indicate a total of $80.5 million gross from Thursday to Saturday, making it the second-highest domestic horror opening of all-time and the biggest October horror opening ever. He also insisted that this "Halloween" will be the final sequel.

A Star Is Born kept strong this weekend and took the number two spot at the box office with $19.3 million. It's also the biggest launch ever with a female lead over 55 years old. The strategy to open it at the Toronto Film Festival and premiere it in America during Fantastic Fest probably helped, too, but make no mistake: Jamie Lee Curtis was a huge selling point, right along with the October release date.
