Halloween Kills

Halloween Kills took the top of the box office for the weekend with an estimated $50.4 million. That’s a pretty solid opening for the film which also opened on Peacock and during COVID. The relaunched franchise’s first film opened with $76.2 million in 2018 and went on to earn $159.3 million domestically and $96.3 million internationally.

Internationally, the film didn’t hold up as well earning just $5.5 million. That slashes a decent $55.9 million worldwide for the first weekend of the film. With mixed reviews, it’ll be interesting to see what legs the film has at the box office.

No Time to Die

It’s two weekends in a row that the weekend box office has totaled over $100 million. No Time to Die led the weekend with a little over $56 million.

Casino Royale opened with $40.8 million in 2006, Quantum of Solace was $67.5 million in 2008, Skyfall opened with $88.4 million in 2012, and Spectre debuted with $70.4 million in 2015.

Venom and Carnage Tear Apart the Weekend Box Office

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was a beast of a film opening with $90.1 million, the best domestic debut for a film this year. The opening shows good things for the franchise and the original film was not a fluke. That movie opened with $80.3 million in 2018 and went on to gross $856.1 million. That has the sequel out-performing the original even during the pandemic, an impressive debut. It should also have Sony excited that they’re heading in the right direction for their Spider-Man franchises and bodes well for the next film to release.

The film also debuted internationally where it grossed $13.8 million for a total of $103.9 million worldwide. We’ll see how the film holds up next weekend when it faces some competition.

Internationally, the winner for the weekend was No Time to Die, the latest James Bond film. Opening domestically next weekend, the film earned $119.1 million in its first weekend at the international box office.

Back here…

The Addams Family 2 debuted in second place with a little over $18 million. No international number was released. The first film opened with $30.3 million in 2019. But, without major kids competition, the film should do well this Halloween season.

In third place was Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film dropped from last weekend’s first place once real competition entered the ring. The film grossed an estimated $6 million to bring its domestic total to $206.1 million. That makes it the top grossing domestic film of the year. The film also earned about $13.9 million over the week to bring its international total to $180.8 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $386.9 million where it has now moved into fifth place for the year.

The fourth place belonged to The Many Saints of Newark. The film also debuted on HBO Max and the word of mouth is generally not good. The Sopranos prequel earned an estimated $5 million domestically and $2.3 million internationally. With just $7.3 million, availability on HBO Max, and bad word of mouth, expect this one to see a quick death at the box office.

Rounding out the top five was Dear Evan Hanson which was second last weekend. The film grossed an estimated $2.5 million to bring that to $11.8 million. The film has not returned and international figures.

In comic films…

The Suicide Squad didn’t show up on the weekend chart but the film looks like it made about $200,000 over the week. Domestically, the film has grossed $55.8 million. The film added about $700,000 to its international gross bringing that to $111.6 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $167.4 million.
