Jordan Peele's "Hunters" Trailer Starring Al Pacino & Logan Lerman

Halloween Kills At The Box Office

In true Michael Myers fashion, the new Halloween slaughtered the competition at the Stateside box office this weekend. The return of The Shape (and Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode) saw an October record-breaking $77.5 million, another winner for the Blumhouse team.

To be fair, the new horror didn't have any wide release competition, but it easily saw off the returning likes of A Star Is Born (which stayed in second place with $19.3 million) and Venom (finally deposed from the top spot, slipping to third with $18.1 million).

Fourth was Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, which kept its position and earned $9.7 million. Rounding out the top five we have First Man, which has continued to underperform, dropping a couple of places and adding $8.5 million.

The Hate U Give expanded its screen count and rose in the charts to sixth, grabbing $7.5 million, that put it ahead of Smallfoot in seventh, with the yeti animated comedy earning $6.6 million. Night School fell to eighth on $5 million.

Bad Times At The El Royale sank again, falling to ninth and $3.3 million, while The Old Man And The Gun added screens and earned $2 million, with the film now up to $4.2 million in the States.

Netflix Nabs Beverly Hills Cop Sequel

The streamer nabbed the sequel rights from Viacom's Paramount Pictures via a one-time licensing deal, with Bruckheimer set to produce.

Netflix has picked up the rights to make a sequel to Beverly Hills Cop, with Eddie Murphy set to star and Jerry Bruckheimer set to produce, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project comes after a one-time licensing deal between Netflix and Paramount to produce the latest reboot of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are on board to direct the long awaited fourth installment of the series.

As competitors like Disney and Warner Bros. withhold their movies from Netflix to feed their own streaming services, Paramount has become a ready supplier, or "arms dealer" of sorts, of content and licensing rights for the streaming giant.

Paramount previously took a planned Beverly Hills Cop 4 sequel off the beat. The studio pulled the planned reboot of the popular cop comedy from its scheduled March 25, 2016 release…
