Rather than remake Halloween again like Rob Zombie did last decade, the new Halloween movie, the 11th installment in the same-named film franchise, instead decided to tie directly to the movie that kicked all this off and ignore everything else that followed afterwards. We're now only a few weeks from seeing Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode clash with Michael Myers again on the big screen, and since October is often a quieter month in the movie realm, Halloween will certainly be one of the more high-profile theatrical offerings. As far as commercial performance goes, it's currently estimated that Halloween will pull somewhere between $50-$85 million opening weekend.
Halloween is definitely the biggest movie opening on October 19, with its competition including Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Serenity and Mid90s. Along with fan interest and a strong advertising campaign, according to Box Office Pro, Halloween is also outpacing fellow horror movies like A Quiet Place and Split on Twitter, largely due to positive reactions to the first trailer. So a $50-$85 million haul opening weekend is quite impressive
