‘Halloween’ expected to sink ‘Hunter Killer’ at the box office this weekend

“Halloween,” a direct sequel to the 1978 John Carpenter classic, posted a killer opening last weekend, grossing $76 million in the United States and Canada. That’s the best opening for a horror movie since Warner Bros.’ “It” set box-office records last fall. “Halloween,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis in the scream queen role that launched her career and set the template for the slasher genre 40 years ago, posted the biggest debut ever for the venerable scary movie franchise.
