Halloween Kills was Peacock’s best non-live premiere to date, according to a recent statement from Comcast. The outcome is not very surprising given that Halloween Kills is the first blockbuster to stream at Peacock upon release. But now that Comcast has declared Halloween Kills a success, we can anticipate more films being streamed at Peacock at the same time they are released in theatres.
The CEO of Peacock, Brian Roberts, referred to Halloween Kills as the “No. 1 non-live event premiere in Peacock’s history,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s safe to anticipate that Halloween Kills will turn out to be a successful case that helps to determine the future of the streaming service given that Comcast recorded a $520M loss on Peacock in its third-quarter earnings report.
The Black Phone, Jurassic World: Dominion, and Legally Blonde 3 are just a few of the highly anticipated 2022 releases that could arrive at Peacock on opening day. Comcast is unlikely to alter its release strategy for films like Sing two weeks prior to its release, but many other highly anticipated movies could. Peacock does require a boost to continue waging the streaming content warfare against Disney+, Netflix, and Paramount+, which are all pushing a lot of original material.
David Gordon Green is directing two sequels to his popular Halloween soft remake from 2018 that was a triumph. Halloween Ends will be released on October 14, 2022, but Halloween Kills was released this October. Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems are the authors of Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. To defeat the monster that haunts this family, Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis), Karen (Judy Greer), and Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) team up in Halloween Kills, setting up an epic conclusion for the third instalment of the trilogy the following year.
Halloween Kills is already proving to be a commercial success, earning $50 million in the United States on its opening weekend, despite not receiving the same favourable reviews from critics as the franchise’s first entry. Halloween Kills pays respect to the entire series with numerous call-backs and unexpected cameos, which may help explain its strong box office performance. With 27 bodies falling to the ground, Halloween Kills is one of the series’ deadliest films. The controversial Halloween III: Season of the Witch held the previous record for the most fatalities in a single movie with 22.
The movie Halloween Kills is currently streaming on Peacock.
