Wow, Halloween is sinking like a stone. A large stone. In a shallow pool. Not that it's unexpected given the horrific word of mouth. Oh well, it's already got enough bank to warrant a sequel. Pretty dismal weekend overall.

Great thread title!

I wish The Brave One had done much better, I really liked it and may go back and see it again tomorrow. The audience seemed really in to it, but I got to say I havent seen that many REALLY old guys at a movie theater in ages. It was.. odd.

The rest of the movies all basically did just as expected. September sucks for movies. It always makes me miss summer.

The was rated R horror has gone over this year, I bet they are very happy with Halloween's box office.

While I'm sure that factors in (although IMDb has it at 6.1, whatever that indicates), I think it's also that time of the year, none of them or doing that good this weekend. It's already made 47 million (on a 15 million budget), plus factor in DVD sales and rentals, international, and a sequel would be pretty easy to give the go ahead. Of course Zombie said he won't do it, so who knows?

I wonder if the box office will be better next weekend.

The first 2 Resident Evil films made between 18-20 million on their opening weekend, so i'm expecting the 3rd one to have a similar opening.

^Actually 3:10 to Yuma held up quite well considering that it is competing with the same audience for The Brave One. IT Should only end up with about a 40% drop from last weekend which is not too bad. I am still pissed it never came to the theatre in the town i live in but they still have Daddy Day Care(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and they got D-WAR, and Woodcock.

wouldn't have been more dramatic sinking in a deep ocean? a shallow pool means it really isn't sinking too far...

I agree. I was predicting 15 million a couple of days ago and I thought that Friday put it right on track to hit it. Maybe they are factoring in some amazing Saturday numbers.

I’m glad The Brave One is doing well at the Box Office & I can’t wait ti’ll it comes on DVD (don’t go to theatres anymore). 3:10 to Yuma held up decently, all things considered.

Although, Zombie said that he won’t do anymore Halloween films, there is no doubt in my mind that they’re will be more Halloween movies, with or without Zombie.

I think the Halloween franchise wins the award for, ‘Horror franchise that jumped the shark so long ago but keeps on going’. I thought Halloween ‘Jumped the Shark’ with, Halloween III: Season of the Witch but 6 more Halloween films we’re maid after that & Zombie’s “re-imagining”.

Yeah, but it also means it's getting to the bottom a lot faster.

The Brave One is not doing "well", just better than the others.

Umm, what exactly would a sequel to a remake of Halloween be? A remake of Halloween II?

Hairspray has held up extremely well for them, and Rush Hour 3 did ok I suppose, but other than that...you're right, I just looked at a list of their movies for the year and there aren't any big ones among them.

New Line still has The Golden Compass coming out in December. It's going to be a much harder sell to the general public than HP, Narnia, and LOTR because the books appeal to a more niche audience than the others. It's also a very expensive film $205 million due to being in development since 2002 and the special effects, plus marketing costs. It's going to have to make at least $250 million in the US to justify New Line's investment and for the rest of the trilogy to be made.

Rush Hour 3 is a BO disappointment. Hopefully there won't be Rush Hour 4.

Nice to MR. WOODCOCK doing much better than expected. Hopefully this means that Billy Bob will be doing more comedy roles instead of all the dramatic serious stuff he always does.
