It has been 14 years to the day - the day when Laurie’s life changed after her confrontation and narrow escape from masked killer Michael Myers. Myers only preys on his victims on Halloween, and he has never accepted Laurie’s escape. Today he has come to take his pound of flesh - or more than a pound, in fact.

Jamie Lee Curtis has led all five ‘Halloween’ movies since the original in 1978 and this one boasted the honour of posting the biggest opening weekend for a film with a 55+ woman as lead, opening at $77,5 million! “Jamie Lee Curtis is an absolute force of nature in this film,” said Universal Domestic Distribution President Jim Orr. Jamie Lee Curtis allowed herself a little boast tweet, pointing out that this was, “Biggest horror movie opening with a female lead. Biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Second biggest October movie opening ever. Biggest Halloween opening ever #womengetthingsdone.
