BOX OFFICE: “Halloween” just “Kills,” Bond falls off, “Addams” doesn’t, “Last Duel” bombs

“Halloween Kills” rolled in the loot and blood over this weekend, turning in a boffo $50 million plus for it’s opening.

Poor reviews didn’t hurt it, Jamie Lee being AARP age did not matter.


The second weekend of Daniel Craig’s curtain call as 007 fell off over 55%, to $24 million and change.

“Venom” devoured another $16.5, closing in on $200 million.

Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” proved that Matt and Ben aren’t the draws they once w were, and that Adam Driver still isn’t there. At least not in a good action and more picture set in the Middle Ages.

A lousy $4.8 million makes it an epic bomb. It deserved better.

That’s barely better than the latest weekend of the Labor Day opener “Legend of Shan Chi,” which took in another $3.5.

“Addams Family 2” cleared the $40 million threshold with another $7 million+ in the bank.

“Lamb,” Icelandic and odd, isn’t making mince jelly money. $2 million today, just over $500k again.
