'Halloween' sets Labor Day record; late-summer surge continues

Halloween took in a record $31 million over the three-day weekend, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The holiday weekend gross for the top-ten films was up 26% over last year’s total. The weekend itself set a record for the time period.

To round things off, summer 2007 set a box office record, topping $4 billion for the first time and ending with an estimated $4.3 billion.
