Halloween: Jamie Lee Curtis Tells Us Which Records It's Broken

Can you blame her for boasting when the film has performed this well?

Halloween has had one of the best openings for an October movie ever, but star Jamie Lee Curtis wants fans to look beyond its £77.5 million USD in opening weekend sales. “OK. I’m going for one BOAST post,” Curtis recently tweeted, listing the new film’s accolades. “Biggest horror movie opening with a female lead.

Biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Second biggest October movie opening ever. Biggest Halloween [movie] opening ever.”

In the film, Curtis reprises her role of Laurie Strode from the 1978 original. Halloween smashed the franchise’s previous record holder, Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of the ’78 original, which took in £26 million USD. After hauling in £7.7 million on its preview night opening, Halloween was expected to bring in £45 to £55 million during its opening, but it smashed that expectation.

IGN awarded Halloween a 9.0, writing that Curtis “brings a fierce conviction and wounded humanity to her iconic scream queen role.” Moviegoers confused by the series’ multiple timelines can make sense of it with IGN’s explainer. Nick Santangelo is a freelance writer based in Philadelphia.
