The Scream series has made a big comeback in the US box office. The last two installments have been big hits for Sony, but this one looks to be the first to surpass them. The first installment, “No Way Home,” opened to a modest $19.9 million and held a comfortable lead in its second weekend. With a modest production budget, Scream was expected to be successful, as a result.
The film is still a far cry from the dread that accompanied the previous two Scream installments. Its opening weekend is very similar to that of Scream 3, which opened in 2000 and Scream 2 in 1997. And despite the fact that Scream is a part of a franchise, there has not been much maintenance in the intervening years. The franchise has been relegated to a three-season TV series on MTV and VH1.
While it’s easy to say that “Scream” is a sequel and not a reboot, it is also a good example of a remake. The sequel’s premise and plot are the same as the original, which means it should be a big hit. While the first one grossed a whopping $43 million, the sequel was expected to gross a much higher amount. The release of the new film was anticipated for quite some time, and critics gave it a very positive review.
Regardless of what the critics say, “Scream” has top-scoring weekend numbers at the domestic box office. Its R-rating will discourage some of the younger audience, but that may prove to be a positive. As long as it is able to draw the 17-34 demographic, the movie should be a huge hit. It is a highly anticipated release for Spyglass and Paramount.
The new Scream movie surpassed the first “Scream” movie and is on track to top the charts for the rest of the week. With pre-release estimates of $30.6 million and $36.2 million for three days, “Scream” is the first sequel to dethrone Spider-Man: No Way Home at the top of the domestic box office. The film’s opening weekend total is estimated at around $92 million.
The Scream movie is projected to open with $13.3 million on Friday. That would be a big hit and beat out the Spider-Man: No Way Home film. The remake of the 1996 slasher classic is a new take on the iconic slasher. The film features Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell. The remake of the original includes a new Ghostface killer who wants to make a sequel to the original.
The Scream franchise has a history of success. The first two installment opened to $47.5 million and “Scream 4” debuted to $18.6 million. The second installment has the highest opening of all Scream films. In terms of cost, Scream was nominated for six awards at the box office. Its cost was just $24 million. Its opening weekend included a total of $18 million from 50 international markets.
