‘Scream’ slashed it’s way to $35million domestic box office debut

‘Scream’ is winning the . holiday weekend at the box office with a projected four-day gross of $35 million, enough to knock Disney/Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home out of the top spot.

Scream‘s three-day domestic weekend gross is estimated at $30.6 million, a strong showing considering the omicron variant and another surge in COVID-19 cases. Internationally, Scream grossed $18 million from 50 markets. The U.K. led with $3.4 million.

The film has younger moviegoers — who have been the most inclined to return to theaters — to thank for its performance. Males led all ticket buyers, though plenty of females turned out as well (53 percent versus 47 percent). 67% of all ticket buyers were between ages 18 and 34.

Scream (also informally known as Scream 5) is a 2022 American slasher film directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. It is the fifth installment in the Scream film series and serves as a relaunch of the film series and a direct sequel to Scream 4 (2011).

Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.

Spider-Man: No Way Home fell to No. 2 in its fifth weekend with an estimated four-day haul of $26 million, including $20.8 million for the three days. Sometime on Monday, the blockbuster will become one of only four films ever to cross the $700 million mark at the domestic box office as it hits $703.9 million. And it soared past $900 million internationally to finish Sunday with astounding global haul of $1.62 billion.
