Cool "Halloween" Makes #1 for 2nd Weekend

Halloween Slices Up a Monster $77.5 Million Opening
by Brad Brevet
October 21, 2018



With a staggering, $77.5 million debut, Universal and Blumhouse's Halloween topped the weekend with the second largest October opening weekend of all-time.

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.







Halloween's $77.5 million three-day debut was the second largest October opening weekend of all-time, coming less than $3 million shy of the record set by Venom earlier this month.

That said, Halloween did deliver the largest October opening day of all-time, topping Venom's $32.5 million. The film's opening is also the second largest ever for an R-rated horror, topping the $53.8 million opening for The Nun a month ago and behind It's $123.4 million debut last September.




The film was successful with audiences, earning a "B+" CinemaScore, which is a strong grade for a horror film.

Internationally, Halloween brought in an estimated $14.3 million from 23 markets, with Mexico leading the way with a chart-topping $4.9 million opening followed by the U.K. & Ireland ($3.6m), Russia ($1.79m) and Indonesia ($1.09m).







Finishing in the runner-up position is A Star is Born, which continues to climb the list of films that never hit #1 at the weekend box office. This weekend the film added an estimated $19.3 million to its domestic total, which now stands at $126.4 million as it enters its third week in release.

Internationally, A Star is Born remained strong, delivering an estimated $22.8 million from 75 overseas markets, pushing the film's worldwide cume to $201.1 million.







Sony's Venom falls two spots after topping the weekend chart for the past two weekends with an estimated $18.1 million, pushing its domestic cume over $170 million as it too enters its third week in release.

While falling from its #1 perch domestically, the film remained the #1 international release for the third straight week, bringing in an estimated $32.3 million from 65 overseas markets for an international cume totaling $290.7 million and a worldwide total of $461.2 million.







Sony also took the fourth spot on the weekend chart with Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, which brought in an estimated $9.7 million for a domestic cume that now totals $28.8 million after ten days in release.

The film also added another $6.2 million internationally this weekend bringing its global cume to $39.9 million.







Universal's First Man rounds out the top five, dropping 46% in its second weekend for an estimated $2.35 million three-day and a domestic cume that now stands at $30 million.

It's an unfortunate performance for the Universal title, which was hoping to play along the same lines of films such as Bridge of Spies and Argo, but it seems to have been lost in the shuffle.

Internationally the film added 25 new markets, now playing in 47 total where it brought in an estimated $13.4 million for an overseas cume totaling $25.5 million.







Just outside the top five is Fox's expansion of The Hate U Give, which played in 2,303 locations (+2,055) and delivered an estimated $7.5 million for a domestic cume that now tops $10.5 million.

The film could be looking at a healthy run moving forward after receiving an impressive "A+" CinemaScore from Friday's audiences.







Rounding out the top ten is Fox Searchlight's expansion of The Old Man & the Gun, which expanded to 802 locations (+574) and delivered an estimated $2.05 million for the weekend, and a domestic cume that now totals $4.2 million.

Landing outside the top ten is Annapurna's expansion of The Sisters Brothers into 1,141 locations (+1,012) for a disappointing $742,014 and a per theater average of just $650.







In limited release, A24's release of Jonah Hill's Mid90s brought in an estimated $249,500 from just four locations for a chart-topping $62,375 per theater average.

It's a great start for the film which will expand nationwide next weekend.







Additional limited releases include Fox Searchlight's Can You Ever Forgive Me? which brought in $150,000 from five theaters ($30,000 PTA); IFC's Wildlife debuted with $05,614 from five locations ($26,404 PTA); Bleecker's What They Had debuted with $18,845 from four locations ($4,711 PTA); Abramorama's The Price of Everything delivered $17,280 from one theater; Janus's re-release of Win Wenders's Wings of Desire brought in $11,635 from one location; The Film Arcade's An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn opened with just $4,800 from 16 theaters; Oscilloscope's On Her Shoulders opened with $4,500 from one location; Cinema Libre's The Advocates opened in one theater with $4,000; and Abramorama's Horn from the Heart debuted with $2,357 from one theater.

Halloween Repeats at #1, Helping October 2018 Reach Record Heights
by Brad Brevet
October 28, 2018



The weekend played out mostly as expected with a repeat of last weekend's top four films, led by Universal's Halloween, which has now delivered over $126 million in just ten days in release.

Lionsgate's release of Summit's Hunter Killer led the week's new wide releases with a top five finish while A24's expansion of Jonah Hill's Mid90s secured a top ten finish.

The biggest news, however, might be the overall month of October, which is now the highest grossing October of all-time with grosses topping $785 million with three days in the month left to go.







Repeating atop the weekend box office is Universal's release of Blumhouse and Miramax's Halloween. The horror hit dipped 58% in its second weekend, delivering an estimated $32 million as its domestic cume now climbs over $126 million after just ten days in release, all on a reported $10 million production budget.

Halloween is also the #1 film internationally, delivering an estimated $25.6 million from 62 markets for an international total that now stands at $45.6 million and a global cume topping $172 million.







Warner Bros.'s A Star is Born continues its strong run both at home and abroad, dropping just -26% domestically this weekend for a $14.1 million three-day and a domestic cume that has now climbed to nearly $149 million.

Internationally, A Star is Born dipped just 23% this weekend, adding an additional $17.6 million from 75 markets in release for an international total that now stands at $104.6 million and a global tally topping $253 million.







Sony's Venom landed in third with an estimated $10.8 million bringing its domestic cume to $187.3 million.

The film's global tally has now topped $500 million after adding an additional $17.3 million overseas this weekend for a worldwide cume that now stands at a $508.4 million.







Sony also lands in fourth position with Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween dropping just 23% as it enters its third week in release with an estimated $7.5 million. The film's domestic cume has now topped $38 million.

The film also added $10.3 million to its international total this weekend, which now stands at $24.2 million for a global cume topping $62.5 million.







Finishing in fifth position is Hunter Killer, from Lionsgate's Summit Premiere label, which fell short of expectations, delivering an estimated $6.65 million this weekend from 2,720 locations.

The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.







Rounding out the top ten is A24's Mid90s, which brought in an estimated $3 million after expanding into 1,206 theaters (+1,202) following a successful limited bow last weekend.







Finishing outside the top ten, Universal's Johnny English Strikes Again brought in an estimated $1.6 million from 544 theaters and a $2,989 per theater average.

The third film in the Johnny English franchise, of course, is more of an international play as it added another $7.1 million internationally this weekend bringing its global cume to a hearty $109.3 million after debuting overseas back in mid-September.

The film has already topped the lifetime gross of 2011's Johnny English Reborn in 36 markets and 2003's Johnny English in 46 markets with the UK leading the way with $18.2 million as it enters its fourth week in release in the market.







Right behind Johnny was Pure Flix's Indivisible, which debuted with an estimated $1.57 million from 830 locations.

Indivisible received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.







Elsewhere, Amazon Studios's Beautiful Boy expanded into 189 locations (+141) this weekend and brought in an estimated $592,897 for a domestic cume that now stands at $1.4 million.

The film will expand to 300-400 theaters next weekend.



Right behind it, Fox Searchlight's Can You Ever Forgive Me? expanded into 25 locations (+20) with an estimated $380k ($15,200 PTA).

In limited release, Amazon's release of Suspiria debuted in two theaters in New York and Los Angeles with an estimated $179,806, delivering a chart-topping $89,903 per theater average. The film will expand into 250 theaters next weekend.







Additional limited releases include Neon's Border, which brought in an estimated $71,565 ($10,224 PTA); Well Go's Burning brought in an estimated $28,650 from two theaters; Zipporah Films's Monrovia, Indiana debuted in one theater with $6,100; and Abramorama's Weed the People also opened in one theater, bringing in an estimated $4,279.
