The new Halloween movie has proved to be a box office hit despite only being an average horror movie. So has it managed to retain the coveted number one spot in America this week? In a word yes, in fact there’s no change in the first four on this week’s movie charts. There were however five new film releases with only one making it into the top 10; these are the figures for the US Top 10 Movie Charts October 26 2018.

Halloween took another impressive amount with just over $31.4m from 3990 movie theaters keeping distributor Universal rather happy, while Lady Gaga’s A Star is Born at two managed a little over $14m from 3904 sites.
So what of those new releases? Well the only that broke into this week’s top 10 movies chart is thriller Hunter Killer starring Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman. This one landed at five taking $6.65m at the US box office.
Now on to those new films that failed to make it big with American audiences. I’ll start with the remake of Suspiria which came in at number 24, however this film only released in two movie theaters and releases wide across America this Friday.
With that out of the way the rest have all appeared to have performed poorly, starting off with the highest entry outside the top 10, Johnny English Strikes Again at no 12. Starring Rowan Atkinson is could only manage $1.63m however it was only available in just 544 locations. Next comes Indivisible at no 13 with $1.5m from 830 sites followed by the mystery thriller London Fields at number 27. In fact its London Fields starring Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton really did bomb at the box office taking just $168,575 from 613 movie theaters.
