Halloween, the reboot of the 1978 classic, has made a killing at the U.S. box office, raking in over $77m (£59m) during its opening weekend. And boy did Halloween deliver on that front. "This is a movie about what happened to Laurie Strode 40 years later". They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. When the camera pans back to the house, it's a split second shot and Michael isn't there.
Meanwhile, Curtis has also opened up about what made her agree to reprise Strode after the disastrous Halloween H2O in 1998, telling the outlet Gordon Green's planned opening scene was delightful.
Naturally, this will not be the end of Michael Myers. Halloween's opening is now the #2 highest opening in October, behind Venom by just a few million dollars, and did set the record for the best opening of Blumhouse Productions by besting Paranormal Activity 3's $52.5 million from 2011. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer. So here's The Shape's most brutal kills in the series so far. Now we know his final fate. What story do they tell from here that won't 1) undermine the integrity of the story they just told, and 2) repeat what they just did? She brings depth to Laurie, making us care about her past and how it has affected her. There's the first two films, which she starred in, the standalone III and then 4-6 - which follow Laurie's daughter Jamie after her death. So where does the franchise go from here?More news: Terminator Pushed To Fill Wonder Woman 1984's Old Release Date

I hadn't made any money on the Halloween franchise at all.
Curtis put the resurgence of horror movies down to troubled times politically. So, as much as I'd love to see that, it's probably not a good idea from Blumhouse. The latter is super, incredibly exciting, but I have to suspect that there aren't very many of them: a report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film previous year showed that women 50 and older comprised of 13% of movie roles, and sole female protagonists only appeared in 35% of studio features. Now David Gordon Green, whose career has swerved from Terrence Malick-esque indie-hit George Washington to the stoner comedy of Pineapple Express and Your Highness, retreads familiar ground with added PTSD.
