Halloween Slays Box-office Record, Yet Sequel Unlikely

Halloween courtesy of MGM/Dimension Films

Rob Zombie's reboot of John Carpenter's original Halloween bled $26.5 million from moviegoers' wallets in its first three days of release, setting a new record for a Labor Day weekend opening. (The previous record-holder was 2005's Transporter 2.) The fright flick also is on pace to top $30 mil for the full four-day weekend, eclipsing the $29.3 mil record held by 1999's The Sixth Sense. Even so, another "resurrection" of Michael Myers is unlikely. "I never say never," a Miramax Films exec tells Reuters, "but it would have to be something very, very different."Rounding out the top five were Superbad ($12.2 million), Balls of Fury (opening with $11.5 mil), The Bourne Ultimatum ($10.2 mil) and Rush Hour 3 ($8.6 mil). Kevin Bacon's Death Sentence was sentenced to the No. 8 spot, debuting to just $4.1 mil. read more
