US Box Office

For a while, horror flicks were in a dip after a few years of riding high scary waves (During the days of The Ring and Saw), but it seems that dip is shortlived (only this year). Now a re-imagined (a la Batman Begins) Halloween slashes its way onto the screens with no less than $31 million. Relative new comer Rob Zombie (former heavy metal rock star) directs an even bigger Michael Myers (Tyler Mane, X-men’s Sabretooth).
Meanwhile, high school low budget comedy Superbad is heading for the $100 million mark, adding $15.6 million to a $92.4 million cume in its third week.
A new entry at 3, Balls of Fire, a spoof featuring ping pong duels inspired by Bruce Lee movies earns $14.3 million.
Rounding out the top 5 are left-overs The Bourne Ultimatum (crossing the $200 million mark in its 5th week) and Rush Hour 3 resp. with $13.2 million and $10.4 million.
