A Star Is Born kept strong this weekend and took the number two spot at the box office with $19.3 million. Coupled with Halloween's $14.3 million global opening gross, the slasher movie made a total $91.8 million worldwide.

That brings its North American tally to $28 million.

In fourth was another seasonal offering, Sony's Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, at $9.7 million (Sh981 million). This weekend's box office itself was up a whopping 71.7% from the same weekend in 2017. A24's coming-of-age skateboarding drama expands nationwide next weekend.

The Melissa McCarthy film "Can You Ever Forgive Me", about the literary forger Lee Israel, grossed $150,000 in five locations. The film has now brought in $10.6 million at the domestic box office.
