'HALLOWEEN' SPOOKS COMPETITION AS 'LONDON FIELDS' TANKS (10/29/2018)
Halloween maintained its top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row. Universal and Blumhouse’s Jamie Lee Curtis-starring slasher picked up $32 million this weekend, a drop of 58% since its debut.
The David Gordon-helmed Halloween crossed the all-important $100 million mark Friday. Worldwide, the film has nabbed $172 million.
The much-delayed star-studded (Amber Heard, Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Theo James, Cara Delevingne, with a cameo featuring Heard's ex Johnny Depp) London Fields opened to $160,000, the second-worst opening for a wide release, behind 2008’s Proud American. The adaptation of the Martin Amis novel of the same name was set to premiere in 2015, but was pulled over a legal dispute.
Meanwhile, A Star Is Born and Venom maintained their slots in the top five, with $14 million and $10.8 million respectively.
