Halloween 2018 is Set to Break Records Opening Weekend

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”4469″ img_size=”810×610″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]For horror fans alike, virtually nothing is more iconic than Michael Myers. In an early prediction ahead of its October 19th release, Halloween 2018 is expected to make anywhere in between $40 million – $50 million during the three day opening weekend. This would make it the franchise’s best domestic box office debut, which would beat out the 2007 reboot, which made $26.3 million its premiere weekend. The reason being could be that whereas R-rated movies are typically a home run with men over 25, the upcoming horror film is sure to be popular with everyone, because us women like horror too.

Along with horror, David Gordon Green’s version will also feature some humorous moments. We will see Jamie Lee Curtis’s character barricaded in the woods while Michael Myers remains in jail. Green co-wrote the script with Danny McBride to create an edgy, dark humor film that will bring in fans old and new.

If Halloween 2018 makes the money it is expecting to make, based on the positive response from the audience at its TIFF premiere; it’ll be ahead of The Conjuring, which made $41.8M its first weekend. Among the horror genre, the top contenders were IT at $123.4M, World War Z at $66.4M, Hannibal at $58M, The Nun at $53.8M, and Paranormal Activity 3 at $52.5M.

Will you be one of the many seeing Halloween 2018 when it premieres?
