Box Office: ‘Halloween Ends’ Opening to Subdued $43M After Also Launching on Peacock

Following the time that David Gordon Green’s Halloween’s End made the audience with a staggering $5.4 million during Thursday’s previews at the national theater, The figures took a downer.

The Universal, Miramax, and Blumhouse film is currently anticipating a weekend opening of $43.3 million that’s a significant drop from the $49.4 million opening of the previous season’s Halloween Kills. Both films were released simultaneously on Peacock and the day-and-date problem doesn’t explain all the differences at the theater.

Halloween’s End — which could likely still be the most successful weekend film is the final film in Green’s trilogy that brought back Jamie Lee Curtis to the series with Laurie Strode.

As we approached the weekend, it was indicated that the $30 million film could make $50 million, given that it’s been touted as the last installment in the series.

Halloween’s End is showing in 3901 theaters.

The 2018 Green Halloween reboot premiered to an all-time high of $76.2 million and was on its way to earning more than $250 million globally. The film also featured Nick Castle reprising his signature role as the menacing beast Michael Myers.

Halloween is over without a doubt faces opposition from Paramount’s sleeper-horror smash Smile which is expected to earn more than $12 million during its third weekend in The answer is no. 2.

While Halloween’s end might be the sole new wide-release this weekend there’s plenty of action at the box office of specialty films as award-winning films begin to begin opening with a bang.
