WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Halloween reboot-sequel easily tops the chart with 77.5MM, breaking various records and instantly becoming the biggest film in the long history of the franchise (before inflation, anyway).

Goosebumps 2 holds onto the fourth slot with 9.7MM on a mere 38 percent drop, but it still lags far behind the original. First Man rounds out the Top Five with 8.6MM on a 47 percent drop; it's almost recouped its production budget worldwide, but has to be considered a disappointment, which likely hurts its chances in awards season.
