Box Office Predictions - 'Halloween' (2018)
There have been 10 Halloween movies since 1978, and none of them since the first one have been box office smashes. Sure, most have them have done well enough, but really only the original made a huge splash. Well, that looks like it could change this weekend as David Gordon Green’s direct sequel to the first Halloween film stalks moviegoers this weekend. Let’s take a look.
I’m just going to go out there and say it: this film looks like it could be this year’s IT. The stars are aligning for Halloween both critically and financially and everybody seems to be itching to see Michael Myers and Laurie Strode back in top form. I just got back from seeing the film, and it is an indisputable crowd-pleaser, maybe even more so than IT was. So for all of these reasons I’m going to swing for the fences and predict that Halloween rakes in a massive $100 million this weekend. I know that seems high, but no one thought IT would gross $124 million its opening, and well, it totally did.
Prediction: $100 million
