Halloween Ends has lowest opening of trilogy; Smile still grinning away towards the top; Star studded cast of Amsterdam can't save it's huge drop.

The third and final in the new Halloween franchise trilogy released this past weekend. Halloween Ends came in with an okay opening weekend, making $40,050,355 domestically and another $17,185,000 internationally. This in stark contrast to the first of the franchise Halloween, which made an impressive $76.2 million in its opening weekend. Although all is not lost with this release, with a budget of $20 to $30 million, this looks set to do okay for Universal, although the same day release on streaming could hurt its box office going forward.
Smile came in second this week, and is still impressing at the box office. The horror movie made another $12,564,356 over the weekend, a fairly healthy drop of -32.2%, especially with the release of a larger franchise film. Smile now currently sits on $71 million domestically and with International numbers of similar values now has made over $137 million worldwide.
Making our way down the list, we have Lyle Lyle Crocodile in at third making $7,352,340 (-35.5%) in its second weekend. The Woman King made another $3,704,189, taking its worldwide box office numbers to just over $76 million, slightly over its budget of $50 million.
With its star studded cast, Amsterdam may just be the biggest shock. In its second weekend only making $2,762,610, a huge drop of over 57%. The film has only made $11 million domestically, and not much more elsewhere and is set to lost plenty of money considering its $80 million budget.
