I remember the first time I saw Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis, I thought she was best thing since sliced bread. She was beautiful, tough and totally kicked butt. Yes I know now that Laurie Strode was just her role but is it really?
Jamie Lee is still totally kicking butt it seems all the way to the top of the box office over the weekend!! That’s right, Halloween brought in $77.5 million in it’s opening weekend, not bad for a movie that only cost $10 million to produce.
Here’s some more butt kicking stats, it’s the second highest October opening ever behind Venom’s $80.3 million earlier this month.
It was the best debut by a new Halloween movie beating Rob Zombie’s remake of $26.4 million. It was the second highest opening for an R-rated horror movie behind IT which brought in $123.4 million.
And the list goes on but I’ll let Jamie Lee have those bragging rights in her latest tweet on Twitter!!
