Coming in just behind last year’s breakout film It, the latest Halloween (2018) film starring Jamie Lee Curtis has the highest opening weekend for a horror movie ever. The 40-years-later sequel has raked in an estimated $77.5 million in the U.S. over its opening weekend, falling second behind the Stephen King adaptation’s $123.4 million USD.
Only a month prior did the number two spot belong to this year’s The Nun, almost a year exactly from the premiere of It. Halloween almost broke top box office for October of all time, but thanks to Venom‘s $80.3 million USD opening weekend, the film falls in the number two spot once again.
