The October 2018 release of the latest Halloween movie - in theaters October 9th - is the 11th installment of the Halloween movie franchise. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the original movie, out in 1978, and the newest film includes the two original stars, Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as the "boogie man", Michael Myers. With $366M in box office revenues before the opening of the 2018 film, the franchise legacy certainly lives on.
