Well, I gotta be honest; I really didn’t see this coming.
Rob Zombie’s Halloween (review #1, review#2) reimagining didn’t just do well at the box office; it blew away every existing box office record for the Labor Day weekend, which technically still isn’t even over yet!
As of yesterday the movie had taken in almost $27 million since it opened on Friday, proving that Dimension moving the release to right before school started was a huge help, and backlash from fans across the ‘net did pretty much nothing at all. And that, thank God, critics can shuttup about R-rated horror being dead. Everyone just had to see what Zombie did, and I’m sure he’s had a pretty damn good weekend all things considered.
Of course you know this inevitably means another sequel will be announced within days, though I doubt he will be involved. And it will be hard to bring him back, considering how it ended. Not that that’s ever stopped Dimension before…
Wonder what you would do with that much cash in the Dread Central forums!
