Because some of the Halloween movies attempt a very solid throughline of continuity, there are little winks and nods to things that happened previously which very almost go by unnoticed, but still manage to connect things. The horror film headlined a massive weekend overall weekend, that saw the top twelve combine for over $160 million, making this the second largest October weekend ever.
Indie Box Office: Mid90s, Wildlife, Can You Ever Forgive Me?It also landed the second-highest debut for an October release, set earlier this month by "Venom" with $80 million.
The 59-year-old actress, who reprised her character Laurie Strode in the classic slasher series, wrote on Sunday what she called a "boast post" after the film opened with an estimated $77.5 million over the weekend.
And Venom still appears to be going strong on its third week in cinemas, totaling $18.6 million just behind the Bradley Cooper-starring romantic drama A Star is Born, which co-stars Lady Gaga.

John Carpenter attended Western Kentucky University and so loved the campus and Bowling Green, that he dropped geographic Easter eggs into those two films. That brings the film's domestic total to $10.6 million.
Tom Hardy stars as a journalist who becomes the super powerful host for an alien creature.
Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong biopic "First Man" tumbled to fifth place in its second weekend earning $8.6 million, down 46 percent from its launch. The latter is super, incredibly exciting, but I have to suspect that there aren't very many of them: a report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film a year ago showed that women 50 and older comprised of 13% of movie roles, and sole female protagonists only appeared in 35% of studio features. The family horror comedy is directed by Ari Sandel and stars Madison Iseman, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Caleel Harris, with Chris Parnell, and Ken Jeong.
And that's not including the $14.3m (£10.9m) made in overseas box offices, either.
