Rob Zombie’s Halloween was released in 2007, and 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*). Ever since then, many have tried valiantly to unseat Big Mike from that record, including The Possession, Morgan, Lawless, Don’t Breathe and a teeny-tiny pop band called One Direction, but all have failed.
This Labor Day Weekend, director Jon M. Chu’s critically acclaimed comedy, Crazy Rich Asians, took on the challenge and almost killed Mike off, taking in a weekend gross of $28,310,000*. That means for the ELEVENTH YEAR RUNNING, Rob Zombie’s Halloween reigns supreme over the coveted 4 day weekend market. Commenting on the news Zombie let out a relieved “whew“.
Congrats to Crazy Rich Asians for the great effort and thank you for helping make Halloween a success. Don’t forget to check out the movie and more info on here it here: Rob Zombie’s Halloween movie page.

On August 31, 2007, Rob Zombie unleashed his vision of Michael Myers onto the movie screens over the Labor Day Weekend. His origin story, a reimagining of the John Carpenter classic, looked more in-depth at the childhood of Myers as well as following him wrecking bloody revenge on his hometown of Haddonfield that fateful Halloween night.
In Zombie’s version, the role of the Myers (originally only credited as ‘The Shape’ in Carpenter’s 1978 film), was played by Tyler Mane. Mane, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly said of working with Zombie;
“…he’s a fantastic guy, a great director, he’s got his vision, he knows what he wants, and he put together a great team. Just working with Scout and Malcolm and everyone, it was a fantastic experience.”
The film also saw appearances from Scout Taylor-Compton who played Myers unknowing baby sister Laurie Strode, Sheri Moon Zombie as Debbie Myers, Daeg Faerch who played the pre-pubescent killer Myers who slaughters his family and Malcolm McDowell who played Dr Samuel Loomis.
Halloween, broke box office records at the time and continues to do so: robzombie.com/2017/09/10-years-halloween-dominates-labor-day-box-office/. Can Michael make it eleven years at the top this year?
