Jamie Lee Curtis Celebrates 'Halloween' Box Office Success

New 'Halloween' Has A Record Breaking Opening Weekend

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. As you can see, at one point in the drafting process of Halloween we got a very different ending to the showdown at Laurie's stronghold.

The horror flick grossed $77.5 million (£59.2m) in the U.S. box office over the three days since its release making it the most successful movie in the Halloween franchise, smashing Rob Zombie's remake, which brought in $58m (£44.3m) in 20017 and Halloween: H20 which earned $55m (£42m) in 1998. Rob Zombie then made a remake and a sequel and finally, we have 2018's Halloween in which - yes - Laurie's resurrected yet again.

A Star Is Born kept strong this weekend and took the number two spot at the box office with $19.3 million. "Biggest Halloween [movie] opening ever". It picked up a solid $7.5 million, taking its total earnings to $10.5 million.
