Michael Meyers and Jamie Lee Curtis can't be stopped. Halloween has topped the box office for the second straight weekend, carving up $32 million in ticket sales.

The sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 original last week notched the biggest opening ever for a film with a female lead over 55, reports the AP.

Bradley Cooper's lauded A Star Is Born remains in second with $14 million in its fourth weekend. The film, starring Cooper and Lady Gaga, has grossed $148 million. Sony's superhero spinoff Venom also stuck in third with $10.8 million in its fourth weekend. The lone new wide release, the submarine thriller Hunter Killer, was deep-sixed with $6.7 million.
