"THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FANS, HALLOWEEN IS NOW THE #1 MOVIE IN AMERICA!

HALLOWEEN Scares Up $31 Million Debut
from Yahoo! Movies

HALLOWEEN came early and closed Hollywood's strong summer season with a record-breaking Labor Day weekend debut.

Rob Zombie's new take on John Carpenter's 1978 horror sensation "Halloween" slashed its way to a $31 million haul over the four-day weekend, surpassing the $20.1 million gross for 2005's "Transporter 2," which had held the record for best Labor Day opening.

Released by the Weinstein Co. and MGM, "Halloween" also topped the $29 million Labor Day gross for 1999's "The Sixth Sense," which had been the biggest-grossing movie over the holiday. That blockbuster ghost story was in its fifth weekend when Labor Day came around.

Led by "Halloween," Hollywood set a new overall record for Labor Day, with the top 12 movies taking in $119.6 million, surpassing the previous high of $106.1 million in 2003.

1. "Halloween," $31 million.
2. "Superbad," $15.6 million.
3. "Balls of Fury," $13.8 million.
4. "The Bourne Ultimatum," $13.2 million.
5. "Rush Hour 3," $10.4 million.
6. "Mr. Bean's Holiday," $8.1 million.
7. "The Nanny Diaries," $6.4 million.
8. "Death Sentence," $5.2 million.
9. "War," $5.1 million.
10. "Stardust," $3.9 million."

Personally I was really disapointed with the movie... it went from a decent explanation of his childhood and start to a horror flick to your everyday crappy teen hack and slash Scream like movie as the movie progressed. And it was hard to tell if he was trying to keep it in the 70s or modern day because they had cellphones and there was a scene with a 2003 Mustang in the background but the radio stations were playing stuff like Blue Oyster Cult and stuff.

I saw this movie opening day, i will say that i enjoyed it, i have been a fan of rob zombies films. Too be honest there was never a need to remake it, as is the case with all the movies lately but his version of it was deffinetly good considering its more of a prequel. I do agree with just another number that it is a little confusing with the time, it seems to go in and out of the 70's. But its not a complete piece of crap like texas chainsaw or hills have eyes 2. My opinion is to go see it and decide for yourself.
