‘Halloween’ Reboot Slays The Competition At The Box Office

Halloweenboxoffice1

The actress, who first portrayed the horror franchise's Laurie Strode in 1978, was so inspired by the new sequel's director David Gordon Green she went home and wrote a screenplay once the film wrapped - and now she's keen to adapt it for the big screen.

Jamie Lee Curtis is keen to get behind the camera for a horror movie after starring in the latest Halloween shocker.

Universal's "Halloween", the 11th film in the horror franchise, beat expectations and earned an estimated $77.5 million in North America this weekend.

Forty years after he first appeared in theaters, Michael Myers is still drawing huge audiences for a good scare.

While John didn't receive the accolades that he wanted at the height of his career, thankfully, at least his movies are finally receiving the credit - and box office numbers - they deserve.

Jamie Lee Curtis is gonna let you finish, but Halloween had one of the best horror movie openings of all time.

Theresa May Considers Longer Transition to Break Brexit Deadlock
While the Irish border issue is holding up a comprehensive Brexit deal, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez says the status of Gibraltar won't be an obstacle.

That strong three-day number gave the film the second-best opening ever for an October, trailing only Venom, which earlier this month booked an $80 million (Sh8.1 billion) debut. Producer Jason Blum was thrilled, saying, "I am enormously proud of this film". Plus, the critics have liked it, the film now at 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Coupled with Halloween's $14.3 million global opening gross, the slasher movie made a total $91.8 million worldwide. After "Venom's" two-week reign atop domestic box office charts, Sunday estimates show Sony's superhero movie led by Tom Hardy was narrowly defeated by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "A Star Is Born" for second place. The Hate U Give, meanwhile, expanded into wide release with so-so attendance (0.8 million) but the chance of further success given its rare 'A+' grade via CinemaScore polling.

But the kicker? It only cost $10 million to produce.

In fourth was another seasonal offering, Sony's Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, at $9.7 million (Sh981 million).

The Mourinho-Shaw saga
Commenting on how the tables have turned in the last few years, Scholes said, "It shouldn't make any difference but it does". Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has described Manchester United as the best team in the Premier League "player-by-player".

While Halloween H20 was initially conceived to be one big 20th-anniversary celebration, the film hasn't lasted the test of time.
