Halloween Makes Franchise History

In three days of release, David Gordon Green’s Halloween has raked in $78 million, a record opening for a movie in the Halloween franchise. Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake nabbed $58 million in 2007, and Halloween: H20 snagged $55 million in 1998.

Worldwide, Halloween snagged about $92 million. It’s also the biggest opening for a slasher film adjusted for inflation. Scream 2’s $33 million opener in 1997 would be about $65 million today. Among R-rated horror films it lags only behind It, which managed $123 million.

Meanwhile, A Star Is Born held onto second place, and broke the $200 million mark worldwide. Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong biopic First Man landed in fifth place in its second weekend out, nabbing just $8.6 million.
