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. While it doesn’t quite surpass the success of 2018’s HALLOWEEN which debuted with $76.2 million in its opening weekend, the feat still is impressive considering the times we are in. 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.
Daniel Craig‘s swan song in the BOND franchise lands on a high note with NO TIME TO DIE debuting on-top with $60 million from 4,407 theatres across North America for Universal Pictures. Despite clocking-in at almost three hours, the longest running time ever for a BOND film, Critics certainly had time for it, giving it 84% on the Tomatometer.
In second is last week’s champ, VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE with $31.1 million from 4,225 theatres for Sony Pictures, a two week total of $140 million over two weeks. Very impressive.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY 2 checks-in third with $9.8 million from 4,207 theatres for Universal Pictures, a two-week run of $31 million.
Fourth spot goes to SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE RINGS earning $4.2 million for Disney/Marvel. Its six week gross is $215 million.
Rounding-out the Top Five is THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK, with $1.5 million from 3,181 theatres, a two-week total of $7.5 million.
VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE devastates in its debut at the Box Office this weekend, taking top spot with $90.1 million from 4,225 theatres, a best opening during the Pandemic. This outdoes its 2018 predecessor which opened with $80.3 million for Sony Pictures. Critics gave this 59% on the Tomatometer.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY 2 debuts in second spot with $15.8 million from 4,207 theaters for Universal Pictures. This installment gets 27% on the Tomatometer from Critics. The previous film in 2019 made $30 million opening weekend.
THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK, a Prequel to The Sopranos, earns $7 million from 3,181 theaters for Warner Bros. The Drama gets a passing 74% on the Tomatometer.
Four week champion SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS makes $5.8 million this weekend, bringing its five week tally to $205.9 million for Marvel/Disney.

In this all new movie we find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, IT, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?
