It goes without saying that this years Labor Day Weekend movie takings were going to be a bit ‘weird’ in comparison to other years. The current Coronavirus pandemic has seen movie goers numbers dwindle BUT that didn’t mean there wasn’t a movie out there that wouldn’t try. The latest Christopher Nolan blockbuster Tenet, sort to try and rival Rob Zombie’s Halloween release from 2007, and was a worthy contender to try and oust Big Mike from the top spot, but again it was not to be.
Speaking about the news Rob Zombie said:
The word on the street was that Tenet was going to topple Halloween 2007’s Labor Day boxoffice record! Did it happen? Nope! Big Mike is still the labor day king for the 13th straight year! Yahooooo! #🔪#halloween #robzombie#labordayweekend #boxofficeRob Zombie | Instagram | 9 September 2020
Rob Zombie’s Halloween broke the Labor Day Weekend Box Office with a $30.5* million weekend gross (previously held by M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” with $29,271,146*). Commiserations to Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which came in a respectable third overall in current figures released by Box Office Mojo. We wonder who will take on the gauntlet next year (in hopefully more normal times).
