Here’s Where The Original Michael Myers Actor Appears In The New Halloween

Hero Complex Halloween 40 Art Show

Universal's reboot of the venerable horror franchise is on track to sell an estimated $77.5 million in tickets at 3,928 theaters in the USA and Canada from Friday through Sunday, winning the weekend and scoring the second-highest October opening ever, behind Venom's $80.3 million earlier this month.

Heading into the weekend, Halloween had been projected to earn $70 million or more - a strong start for a film that cost about $10 million to make.

Director David Gordon Green's sequel, which picks up four decades after Carpenter's original film (and disregards the installments in between), sends Myers on another murder spree through suburbia, though former baby sitter Laurie Strode (Curtis) has been preparing for his return. "'Halloween' brings the franchise back to life in a fresh, relevant and fun way that is winning over fans and critics alike".

Blast from the past: Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, who debuted in the 1978 original horror classic Halloween. That said, Halloween did deliver the largest October opening day of all-time, topping Venom's $32.5 million. It's also the biggest launch ever with a female lead over 55 years old. Carpenter served as an executive producer and composed the score with his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies. "A Star Is Born" pocketed another $19.3 million, while "Venom" follows close behind with $18.1 million for solid domestic totals of $126 million and $171 million, respectively.

Fox's The Hate U Give expanded nationwide this weekend after two weeks in limited release, rising to sixth place this weekend for $7.5 million.

"Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween" also cashed in on the spooky spirit, picking up $9.7 million to land in fourth place. In North America, the animated family film has amassed $66 million.

Halloween debuted in 3,928 theaters this weekend, pulling in an impressive per-screen average of $19,730.

Overall box office is up 10.6 percent year-to-date, according to ComScore.
