'Halloween' Slices Up a Monster $77.5 Million Opening

Halloween

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

In this exclusive video, the cast and crew of Halloween 2018 reminisce about their first times seeing the original film when they were all just kids, and the impact it made on all of their lives, not to mention the impact it had on the entire horror genre itself.

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. The horror film headlined a massive weekend overall weekend, that saw the top twelve combine for over $160 million, making this the second largest October weekend ever.

David Gordon Green directed "Halloween", which brings back Curtis as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as Michael Myers and essentially ignores the events of the other sequels and spinoffs aside from John Carpenter's original. Plus, the critics have liked it, the film now at 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Halloween" was enough to bump the comic-book film "Venom" out of the No. 1 spot and into third place.
