Halloween Kills Scares Up Big Profits at Box Office

With the cinema bouncing back from the pandemic, every little movie victory is a huge one. One person in particular or franchise I should say absolutely wants to kill it at the box office this October and that is Halloween! The masked evil boogeyman is back and not ready to die just yet but he certainly was ready to cut through the other movies that hit the big screen this weekend. Halloween Kills, the second installment in the final trilogy of Michael Myers, hit theaters and Peacock on Thursday, October 14th and brought in $4.9 million just on Thursday previews.

Halloween Kills Lives Up To Its Title – For Better, And Worse

Finally, it’s here. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed a lot of hotly anticipated horror movies. A Quiet Place II. The Forever Purge. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. But none of these movie had quite the same buzz as Halloween Kills. After David Gordon Green and Danny McBride successfully revitalized the dormant series three years ago, Blumhouse Productions eventually announced plans for not one, but two sequels – Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Now the waiting is over. And a host of returning actors from the original Halloween along with a few new faces are joining Jamie Lee Curtis for the middle sequel. Not surprisingly, critics are a little less enthusiastic about the results. It sounds like Halloween Kills suffers a bit from its place as the middle movie of a trilogy.

Box Office: ‘Halloween Kills’ Slays With $4.9 Million in Thursday Previews; ‘The Last Duel’ Stumbles With $350K

“Halloween Kills” slashed its way to $4.9 million in Thursday previews. The Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions horror flick is the latest blood-soaked installment in the long-running “Halloween” franchise, a series that is firmly in its fifth decade. And despite being comfortably middle-aged, “Halloween Kills” is projected to generate $35 million to $40 million in its first three days of release. That’s a big drop from the $77 million bow that its predecessor, 2018’s “Halloween,” generated in its inaugural weekend, but it’s still an impressive figure. That’s because unlike that earlier entry in the Michael Myers chronicles, “Halloween Kills” will premiere...

Welcome to the Blumhouse’s latest movies make a strong pitch for new voices in horror

One year ago, horror-centric studio Blumhouse Productions launched a new movie-anthology series for the Halloween season, releasing four suspense films on Amazon Prime under the Welcome to the Blumhouse banner. Like the eclectic fare Blumhouse releases in theaters — and unlike the company’s previous fright-focused anthology series, Into the Dark — that first set of “Welcome” movies mostly skirted the outer edges of the horror genre. Black Box, Evil Eye, The Lie, and Nocturne had spooky-ish titles, but all four functioned more as psychological thrillers. They hinted at supernatural elements, but they weren’t monster movies or slasher films.

'Halloween Kills' Racks Up an Impressive Body Count, Debuting With $4.9 Million in Thursday Previews

After a year-long delay, Halloween Kills has finally made its way to theatres in brutal fashion. The slasher sequel made $4.9 million in its Thursday night preview showings and it is on track to make $35-40 million in its opening weekend. This might seem like a massive drop-off when compared to 2018's Halloween, which made $77 million in its opening weekend, but given that movie fans are still getting comfortable going back to the movies, Universal Studios and Blumhouse Productions have to be pleased with this result. Add on top of that, when you compare that to Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel, which is looking to make only $10 million in its opening weekend, Halloween Kills is scaring its way towards a dominant three days at the box office.
