Blumhouse Productions’ Halloween, the latest remake of the beloved 1978 slasher flick, took top spot at the box office this weekend, according to the New York Times. Raking in $77.5 million, the reboot also topped all other movies in the Halloween franchise. The Times notes that the film exceeded analysts’ expectations for revenue—which is especially notable in October, a month with historically low ticket sales. Warner Bros.’s A Star is Born took second place, bringing in $19.3 million and overtaking Sony’s Venom for the first time since the two films were released. Earlier this month, the Times notes, Venom and A Star is Born broke an October ticket-selling record.
