The thirteenth installment of one of the most successful slasher film series ‘Halloween’ and sequel to 2021’s ‘Halloween Kills’, ‘Halloween Ends’ is finally ready to hit theaters and will be released on 14th Oct in the USA. There is no doubt that ‘Halloween’ is a very successful slasher film franchise and has always been a more profitable deal with a lower cost for production. The last film of the series also had a perfect opening, and the makers are expecting a lot from ‘Halloween Ends’, while this time too, nothing special has been done regarding the cost of the film.
Universal Pictures’ Halloween Ends Budget Revealed
As per the verified report, Universal Pictures ‘Halloween Ends’ is a small-budget film, and the production budget for the film is $20-24 million, excluding prints and advertising costs. $20 million clearly shows that the makers have so much faith in the movie that no importance is given to the price, and it’s probably also inevitable as the box office performance is quite impressive despite the low cost. But still, it was the last film, so what to skimp on it?
The production budget of the film ‘Halloween Kills’ was also around $20 million, and you should know that even though ‘Halloween Ends’ is ready now, it was announced and filmed with ‘Halloween Kills’ that the production cost of both films is the same. But besides the production budget, the production has spent a big amount on the promotion of ‘Halloween Ends’, and it is much more than the previous films.
‘Halloween Ends’ is one of the most talked about films of the year 2022, and it’s easy to say that it will meet its $20 million budget, including P&A, on just the opening weekend, and overall, this is going to be a big profit for film production.
‘Halloween Ends’ was produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum, and Bill Block under the production banners of Universal Pictures, Miramax, Blumhouse Productions, Trancas International Films, and Rough House Productions and is set to be distributed by Universal Pictures.
