All analysts agree: "Halloween" hits theaters this Friday in the US, and between Jamie Lee Curtis's debut and return as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle (with James Jude Courtney) as Michael Myers, will spray the ticket booths.
Ignoring what happened in nine sequels, estimates go to 70 million in the US, which some believe to be conservative, and 30 more in its debut in 21 other countries.
The financial success will be great news for John Carpenter, to believe in the sincere way he spoke of his involvement in the film in an interview with Den of Geek.
The legendary director of the original "Halloween", who called himself in Portugal "The Return of Evil", recalled that producer Jason Blum convinced him when he told him that the studio was going to make the film with or without them and it was best to join to help make it good.
In this collaboration, Carpenter takes on the role of executive producer, but contrary to usual, was not a symbolic position: in addition to giving advice behind the scenes, he returned to compose the soundtrack with his son, Cody Carpenter, and also Daniel Davies .
When asked about the availability to make new sequels or versions of their films in the same way, he began by saying that he does not compromise without seeing something concrete, but he added that he is "available for almost everything that involves money. It's always good. "
The new "Halloween" premieres in Portugal on the 25th.
