‘Halloween’ Scaring Up $14M+ Overseas, Slashing Way To $95M Global Weekend

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Universal/Miramax/Blumhouse’s David Gordon Green-directed reboot-sequel Halloween is scaring up an estimated $14.7M bow at the international box office this weekend. This is in line with Uni estimates heading into the launch where Jamie Lee Curtis’ badass strode into 23 markets. Mexico, the UK and Russia are the only majors this frame (next weekend is a bigger push in key hubs). Coupled with domestic, the worldwide bow is expected to hit $95M — these figures may of course shift when we get the full rundown tomorrow and the actuals on Monday.

The movie will be the No. 1 title domestically and worldwide for the frame. Overseas, it should come in at No. 3 behind Venom and A Star Is Born. Starts in Mexico, the UK, Indonesia, Finland, Slovakia, Ecuador, Panama, Honduras and Nicaragua are all No. 1s. The like-for-like opening of $14.7M shoots higher than Split (+11%), The Conjuring (+50%), Lights Out

After enjoying a well-received run at the box office (bringing in more than $120 million globally), it was announced earlier this year that a sequel to Happy Death Day is moving forward at Blumhouse and Universal, and with the teaser trailer for Happy Death Day 2U currently playing ahead of the new Halloween in theaters, the first poster for the movie has been unveiled online.

Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas Interviews Hell Fest Cast/Crew

With Blumhouse’s Halloween hitting theaters tomorrow, I think it’s safe to say that the slasher genre is making one helluva a comeback. Although Michael Myers’ return certainly helps revitalize the genre, let’s not ignore the impact of Hell Fest, the amusement park-set horror film from Gregory Plotkin. […]

First Happy Death Day 2U Trailer Will Be Here This Weekend

Paramount and Platinum Dunes originally wanted to release a new Friday the 13th back in October of 2017, but the spooky corridor ultimately belonged to another horror title: Happy Death Day.

Blumhouse and Christopher Landon’s sleeper hit took inspiration from movies like Groundhog Day and Scream and wrapped them all up in a very entertaining package – even if the final product proved to be a bit too familiar for some. Still, Happy Death Day crushed it at the box office, bringing in over $100 million on a production budget of just $4.8 million. And now, we’re getting a sequel in the form of Happy Death Day 2U, arriving on February 14th, 2019.

Not only that, but we’ll be able to get our first look at the pic this weekend, as the teaser trailer will be attached to Blumhouse’s Halloween, which creeps into theaters tomorrow. From what we understand, the preview

How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’

How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’
When Paul Davis and Paul Fischer initially set out to expand their 2013 short film “The Body” into a feature, they did so on spec, not knowing Blumhouse was going to set a deal with Hulu for a monthly horror anthology series called “Into the Dark.” Although their story — about a hitman who is lugging the corpse of his latest victim on Halloween — lent itself perfectly to the holiday theme Blumhouse was going for and became “Into the Dark’s” premiere piece, there was one big change they wanted to make in the adaptation.

“The hitman, Wilkes, he got away with it in the short — he got pranked by a couple of guys that you thought were police officers, but were actually two guys dressed for Halloween, and they kind of sent him on his way, the joke’s on him, ha ha ha. But in this one, I said to myself,

Box Office: Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart’s ‘Night School’ Squashed ‘Smallfoot’ With $28 Million
Even an adorable Yeti was no match for the comedic team of Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart.

Universal’s comedy “Night School” topped the domestic box office with $28 million from 3,010 locations. Fellow newcomer “Smallfoot,” Warner Bros.’ animated family film, came in close behind with $23 million when it launched in 4,100 venues.

Though “Night School” came in on the lower end of initial projections from box office analysts, the PG-13 comedy is off to a good start considering

Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’
Eye candy without much to offer the brain or emotions, “Hell Fest” is a competently crafted slasher film rendered instantly forgettable by its disinterest in character, plot, and motivation, let alone original ideas. An early Halloween salvo, it will be gone from theaters before that holiday (or even the latest screen “Halloween”) arrives, but should in the short term satisfy that seasonal itch among horror fans before bigger, better fright-fests arrive.

After the obligatory prior-victim’s-fate prelude, we meet the film’s college student protagonists, who are young and cute but not much else. Natalie (Amy Forsyth) reunites with ex-roomie Bff Brooke (Reign Edwards) — the movie suggests there’s some reason why they haven’t seen each other for a while, but never gets around to explaining it — while less enthusiastically renewing acquaintance with Brooke’s irksome new flatmate Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus).

Nonetheless, all three are soon off to Hell Fest,

Box Office: Can Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s ‘Night School’ Best ‘Smallfoot’?

Box Office: Can Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s ‘Night School’ Best ‘Smallfoot’?
Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are hoping that big laughs equal big bucks when “Night School” opens this weekend. Before the comedic duo can claim box office victory, however, they’ll have to fend off one adorable Yeti.

Universal’s “Night School” is eyeing a debut between $27 million and $35 million from 2,900 theaters. The film reunites Haddish with “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. The PG-13 comedy finds Haddish playing an unorthodox teacher helping Hart get his Ged. If estimates hold, the launch of “Night School” looks to be on par with “Girls Trip’s” $30 million start. That raunchy comedy became a sleeper hit, grossing over $140 million worldwide off its $19 million budget. “Night School” has a slightly higher price tag at $29 million.

Hart has long been a box office draw, but “Night School” will test the star power of Haddish in her first lead role since breaking

The Happy Death Day Sequel Will Be Called Happy Death Day 2U and We Have a Release Date

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse are currently in production on the sequel to their hit horror film Happy Death Day. Today we’ve learned that the sequel will be called Happy Death Day 2U and it will be released on February 14th, 2019.

I walked into Happy Death Day thinking it was going to be a piece of crap film, but to my surprise it actually ended up being very entertaining. It was like a horror version of Groundhog Day and I actually enjoyed the movie a lot and I wouldn’t mind seeing how the story continues with a sequel.

Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard will be back to reprise their roles from the first movie and the original director Christopher Landon is also back at the helm.

There’s no information on the story for the sequel, but the first film centered on a character named Tree Gelbman, “a blissfully

Universal Reveals ‘Happy Death Day’ Sequel Title
Blumhouse and Universal Pictures are throwing another slasher birthday rager following the success of 2017’s “Happy Death Day.”

The film’s original lead, Jessica Rothe, will return in the newly titled “Happy Death Day 2U” when it hits on the previously announced date of Valentine’s Day 2019.

Christopher Landon is back as writer and director with Jason Blum producing. Angela Mancuso, John Baldecchi, and Samson Mucke (“Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”) serve as executive producers.

Plot details are under wraps, though a synopsis said Rothe will discover that “dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.”

The first followed young co-ed Tree (Rothe) who awakens from a one-night stand and slinks off into a daylong birthday celebration, only to be brutally murdered at a party that evening. Instead of the afterlife, however, she reawakens once again the stranger’s bed and is forced to
