Well, so much for “Halloween.”
Last Friday Jamie Lee Curtis and co. took in $33 million and went for a $76 million weekend.
But the movie may turn out to be a hollowed out pumpkin. Last night receipts were $10 million, off by 69.7%. This weekend sees a drop of two thirds. Halloween comes mid week. By next Friday, Michael Myers will have scared everyone off.
Annapurna has kept “Sisters Brothers” in theaters — like over 770 of them. Why? Last night the take was $79,144. I mean, why bother? Kill the poor thing already.
“A Star is Born” just keeps booming away. Friday brought $4.1 million, total up to $138 million. They’ll cross the $150 mil mark tomorrow. And they’ve only just begun.
We’ll see how the bad weather on the East Coast affects the rest of the weekend.
