This October has been a great month for breaking records!
The newly released Halloween movie managed to bring in over $76 Million! Meaning that this sequel to the 1978 film managed to become the highest opening weekend slasher movie of all time, as well as October’s second highest grossing movie – just falling short of Venom, the first place film, by $4 Million.
However, Halloween isn’t the only successful film this weekend. A Star is Born, the Bradly Cooper directed film that came out 3 weekends ago, managed to overtake Venom for the first time since its release. It is very rare for a movie to stay in the 2nd place spot for 3 weeks in a row, while other movies fall below the 2n place marker. This can only be attributed to the very positive word of mouth surrounding the film, as well as repeat views by audience members.
Check how the other films faired in the top five below!
No 1. Halloween (2018) – $76,221,545 in its first weekend of release.
