When Rob Zombie’s Halloween was released over the Labor Day Weekend in 2007, it broke box office records for this holiday weekend in the US.
And it has continued to do so year after year.
Other movies have tried to beat Halloween, which had a Labor Day box office result of $30.5 million, but they have all failed. Valiant attempts have been made by such contenders as The Possession, Morgan, Lawless, Don’t Breathe and a teeny-tiny pop band called One Direction, but none have managed to topple Big Mike.
Congratulations to The Hitman’s Bodyguard which *topped 2017’s weekend box office results for September 1 – 4, but also commiserations and good luck to whoever wants to try to take the mantle next year.
A decade on from Halloweens release, thank you for helping make Rob Zombie’s Halloween a success. Don’t forget to check out the movie and more info on here it here: Rob Zombie’s Halloween movie page.
