‘Halloween Ends’ is Targeting a $50 Million-Plus Opening

‘Halloween Ends’ is targeting a $50 million-plus opening weekend, despite a hybrid release on Peacock.

Halloween Ends might be releasing simultaneously in theaters and on Peacock, but that doesn’t look to be hurting its box office potential. Current estimates have Halloween Ends looking at a healthy $50 million to $55 million opening weekend. Should those numbers hold, Halloween Ends will be the first movie to earn over $50 million in its opening weekend since July’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

The film’s predecessor, Halloween Kills, also released simultaneously in theaters and on Peacock, and that film managed to secure a $49 million opening last October. That was an impressive feat on its own in the midst of a Pandemic. Ends, however, looks ready to benefit from monopolizing the Imax and other premium large formats. While Halloween Ends looks to overtake Kills, it’s doubtful it’ll surpass 2018’s Halloween which pulled in $77 during its opening weekend. Working in that film’s favor was the fact that it was released exclusively in theaters during a COVID-free time.

Halloween Ends is directed by David Gordon Green and stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, Kyle Richards, and Rohan Campbell. The movie hits theaters on Friday, October 14th.
