This is the latest thought from insiders: The new John Carpenter revamp remake reimagining will make somewhere between $50-$85 million opening weekend.
That will be considered strong if it occurs ...
The movie cost about $10 mil to make..
But what may also matter is staying power. The movie premieres only days before the actual Halloween on calendars so the film may not be relative beyond its initial week..
And while some positive word of mouth and excitement have been generated by creative trailers, if the movie is just plain bad it could drop handily in dollars by Sunday opening weekend..
