#BOXOFFICE: “HALLOWEEN KILLS” SLASHES ITS WAY TO TOP SPOT
HALLOWEEN KILLS slashes its way to the #1 spot at the Box Office in its debut this weekend for Universal Pictures, with $50.1 million from 3,705 theatres.

Critics gave this one a 36% on the Tomatometer.
In second spot is NO TIME TO DIE with $24.4 million in its second week, a total domestic run of $99.7 million for Universal Pictures.
Third is VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE with $16 million from 4,013 theatres, a three week total of $167.8 million for Sony Pictures.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY 2 lands in fourth with $6.7 million, a three week total of $41.8 million for Universal Pictures.
THE LAST DUEL directed by Ridley Scott (who also has House of Gucci later this year) and starring buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, rounds-out the Top Five with $5 million from 3,065 theatres for 20th Century Studios. Critics raved with an 86% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
