I'll keep the distinctly Halloween movies for October (Hocus Pocus, Sleepy Hollow, etc). Hmm.....but what to start with that is fall like? I think I'll start with The Dark Crystal!
"The Dark Crystal was released in 858 theaters in North America on December 17, 1982. In its initial weekends, it had a limited appeal with audiences for various reasons including parental concerns about its dark nature, creative connections with Henson's family-friendly Muppet franchise and because it was overshadowed by the film's competition over the Christmas of that year, including Tootsie and the already massively successful E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Although it never topped number one, the film managed to present lasting power in its following weeks, even past the new year of 1983. By the end of its box office run, it made $40,577,001 dollars, profiting over its $15 million dollar budget.
During its international release in 1983, The Dark Crystal was the highest-grossing box office release for the year in both France and Japan. and out-grossed E.T. as the most successful foreign film in Japan until Titanic took over the spot 14 years later. The film has gained a cult following over the years since its release."
What movies will you watch this fall? Please leave a comment, I would love to add new Fall/Halloween movies to my collection.
