‘Halloween’ Screaming A $33M+ Second Weekend, Will Slash $100M Mark Tonight

Faring well is A24's expansion of Jonah Hill's Los Angeles street skateboard teen drama Mid90s which in an expansion from 4 locations to 1,206 is looking at a $1.3M Friday,  weekend 2 of $3M, 10-day of $3.3M.
is an afterthought with the Working Title pic shooting past the $100M threshold with $15M alone from the UK. Universal has the third Johnny English movie, Johnny English Strikes Again of which the U.S. The Donovan Marsh-directed submarine movie made $420K at 2,200 screens last night and is poised to make $2.4M today and $7.2M over three-days in 4th place at 2,720.

And the horror sequel is showing again that there's money to be made at the end of October with a $33.3M second weekend, -56%. While it's often written that the weekend that lands prior to or around Halloween is deathly slow, it really depends on what the studios put on the marquee. Tonight the David Gordon Green-directed sequel will slash past the $100M mark with a $10.3M Friday after a $94.7M first week, and by Sunday Halloween will stand at $128M.
