"Halloween" was the biggest horror movie opening with a female lead, and the biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. The box office was looking sharp after going under the knife! Blumhouse was smart, however, to make the 2018 version a direct sequel to the original, and it helped that it was also very good.
It has been 40 years since the actress made her movie debut in the original Halloween film, and she's reprised her role as Laurie in the latest installment. "Audiences are responding to movies big and small right now - You can have your cinematic fast food and fine dining all at once right now".
Additionally, Halloween managed to push out the latest comic-book movie out of the number one spot, Venom, starring The Revenant alum, Tom Hardy, who has been making waves in Hollywood for the past few years. In one of Michael Myers' first murders in the new movie, the offscreen voice of a crying baby, Green explained, was provided by none other than Curtis herself.
Some are obvious narrative references, like when Laurie speaks about the night in 1978 or when a voice recording of Dr. Loomis can be heard, but the far more interesting references are the ones in the form of the film itself.

But anyone claiming that the filmmakers didn't have affection for those original sequels isn't paying attention. "Halloween" also notched the second-best start for an R-rated horror film following "It's" $123 million launch. Venom is still doing pretty well, dipping only another 48.3% in its third weekend to fall to third place. Star Jamie Curtis celebrated Sunday with what she called a "boast post". The coming-of-age drama grossed $249,500 during the weekend for a $62,375 per-screen average, with the studio planning to expand next weekend after the strong opening. This past weekend put the total ticket sales at about 1.0427 billion, slightly better than 2016's 1.0413 billion.
