Halloween took a dive as November began. The good news is that the $10 million slasher flick, this after it snagged a $76.2m opening weekend.
The Jamie Lee Curtis-led sequel earned $11m (-64%), but I think Blumhouse and friends will be okay. The Universal/Comcast Corp. release has now earned a whopping $150.6m domestic and $229.6m worldwide, meaning it is Blumhouse’s third-biggest global grosser behind Split ($278m) and Get Out ($256M). It is right between Split ($138m) and Get Out ($176m) in domestic earnings. It looks like a $175m-$180m finish for this one. It may not be long for this world after Halloween, but it didn’t need to be, especially with The Grinch on tap this Friday.
