Movie box office results for the Oct. 28-30 weekend (all amounts US$) plus IMDb trivia:

1. Black Adam ($27.7M)

— Jordan Peele ("Get Out," "Us," "Nope") was offered this directing gig, which he politely turned down: "I'm not a fan of superhero movies and I'd hate to take that chance away from a director who is passionate about them."

2. Ticket to Paradise ($10.0M)

— George Clooney's character makes a comment about an "age-appropriate date," which is a joke the notorious prankster gamely aims at himself. Clooney, 61, has long preferred the company of younger woman. His wife, Amal Clooney, is 17 years younger than him.

— "The Devil's Light" was the original title of this horror film. It was changed to "Prey for the Devil."

4. Smile ($5.0M)

— Paramount originally intended this low-budget horror film to be a streaming-only release. Enthusiastic test audiences scores prompted a theatrical run and "Smile" has proven to be one of the year's most profitable releases. The screamer will soon hit the $100-million mark at both the domestic and international box offices.

5. Halloween Ends ($3.8M)

— This is the 13th film in the "Halloween" franchise, but only the second one where masked killer Michael Myers is living in the sewers of Haddonfield. The other was "Halloween: Resurrection" in 2002. Was the Motel 6 full? 🌓
