"Halloween," the new direct sequel to the 1978 classic original, took in an estimated $77.5 million over the weekend.




It's the biggest opening even in the franchise and for a movie produced by Blumhouse Productions.




"Halloween" is the second-biggest opening for a horror movie, behind 2017's "It" ($123.4 million).



Michael Myers showed this weekend he can still get butts in the seats. Director David Gordon Green's sequel to John Carpenter's legendary original 1978 movie, which he penned with Danny McBride, brought in an estimated $77.5 million.
That's the biggest opening ever for the "Halloween" franchise and the best for any Blumhouse movie. "Halloween" is also the second-biggest opening weekend ever for an October release (just below the $80.2 million earned by "Venom" three weeks ago), and second-biggest opening ever for a horror movie. The first being Warner Bros.' "It" in 2017 ($123.4 million).
Audiences and critics alike loved this latest "Halloween" sequel, which took the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" formula of paying homage to many of the traits of the original movie.
