Halloween: Franchise return now looking to take October Venom record


With Halloween making a killing at the box office, the Blumhouse movie is now looking to dethrone Venom for October’s biggest opening ever.

Halloween was already killing it at the box office, but it’s getting deadlier…..

Box Office Mojo is reporting Michael Myers is very much alive. After the popular film site released early Thursday numbers for the new Halloween, the movie was looking at the second biggest October opening ever behind recent comicbook release, Venom. Now, industry experts have the Blumhouse film making $80.3 million domestically when the sun rises Monday, which would overcome the Tom Hardy vehicle’s $80.25 million debut.

While the new Halloween has its problems (thoughts still simmering for upcoming review), this is both amazing for the classic franchise and genre as a whole. Not only does this solidify another sequel, but it’s one in a long line of recent horror hits at the box office.
