(Los Angeles, CA) -- The revival of the horror-slasher film Halloween is this weekend's top movie in the U.S. and Canada.
The picture starring Jamie Lee Curtis made over 77-million-dollars in its first week in North America's theaters. Industry experts say Halloween enjoyed the second-biggest horror movie opening ever.
Coming in second is A Star is Born. The musical costarring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper made just over 19-million-dollars and has grossed just over 126-million-bucks domestically since its release seventeen days ago.
Rounding out this week's top five are Venom, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween and First Man.
I saw "First Man" on Friday night at Regal Cinemas in Lima. Putting the high priced tickets and snacks aside, I was impressed with the availability of Cheetos Popcorn.
I thought Ryan Gossling did a nice job portraying Neil Armstrong.
I learned a lot, especially about how many men sacrificed and died leading up to the lunar mission.
I just wasn't totally blown away by the film. I was disappointed that there was no mention of Wapakoneta, OH, at all.
Also, leaving out when the astronauts planted the American flag into the moon was a bit of a letdown, hearing that the movie producers didn't want to offend anyone. It was a factual thing that actually took place, so why not include it?
