Box Office Results - 'Halloween' (2018)

Halloween 2018 absolutely vanquished the competition this weekend, though it didn’t make it to my ridiculously high prediction. Still, it has the third highest horror opening of all time and in just three days is the second-highest grossing Halloween film of all time domestically. That’s impressive.

Halloween (Universal)
Prediction: $100 million
Actual: $76.2 million

I predicted Halloween would break out to the tune of $100 million. It didn’t, but it still broke out, I was just being a little too ambitious in thinking it would reach around the same amount of people that IT did just last year. Still, $76 million is absolutely massive and by far the best opening a Halloween film has ever had, even when you factor in inflation. In addition to this, the film is damn good and barring a catastrophic drop next weekend, it should be able to rake in a hefty total and guarantee a green light for a sequel.


The Top 10

1. Halloween - $76.2 million (NEW)
2. A Star is Born - $19 million
3. Venom - $18 million
4. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween - $9.7 million
5. First Man - $8.3 million
6. The Hate U Give - $7.6 million
7. Smallfoot - $6.6 million
8. Night School - $4.9 million
9. Bad Times at the El Royale - $3.4 million
10. The Old Man and the Gun - $2.1 million
