NEW YORK – A month later, the No. 1 spot in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” finally hit the box office. The re-launch of Scream debuted with $ 30.6 million in ticket sales for the weekend, according to studio estimates on Sunday.

“Scream” is a self-portrayed “demand” film that is both the fifth film in the franchise and releases that introduce new young actors, including Martin Luther King Jr. carried out all releases for the weekend. The film is expected to gross $ 35 million, based on Monday’s revenue. Scream, which cost about $ 24 million, added another $ 18 million in 50 international markets.

This has led to a strong resurgence for the self-aware slasher franchise. Directed by Matt Bettiello-Olpin and Tyler Gillet, this “Scream” was the first film not directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015. Screaming original actors Neve Campbell, Courtenay Cox and David Arkett, as well as Melissa Barrera have just joined. , Jenna Ortega and Jack Quaid.

Most importantly, Scream is the first box office success in a year and hopes to return to weekly stability in Hollywood cinemas. January is usually a quiet period at the box office, but the rise of the omicron variant in COVID-19 has further strengthened the release plans for some winter films.

“All of our traditional measures have shown a solid opening, but as I tell people: we’re still working on it, and it’s very difficult to determine what will actually happen,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution at Paramount. “Now we’re open, people saw (” Scream “) and we ran. I hope this will be another building block to restore the business and get it back to normal.”

At the same time, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” dropped to second place, but continued to grow in the record books.

“No Way Home” grossed $ 20.8 million in its fifth week of release. “No Way Home” grossed $ 703.9 million on Monday, surpassing the “Black Panther” to become the fourth largest film of all time in the United States, making it the only Avatar to be released. ($ 760). million), The Avengers: Endgame ($ 858 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($ 936 million). Worldwide, No Road Home grossed $ 1.6 billion.

Sing 2 finished third with $ 8.3 million in three days over its fourth weekend. The animated sequel grossed $ 122.1 million domestically and $ 96.3 million internationally.

While the debut of Scream was a celebration, its performance also reflected current rental realities: films about superheroes and films in the genre that appeal to young audiences have returned to pre-pandemic levels, while older films have not returned to that level.

Scream (which is 75% new to Rotten Tomatoes and B + from CinemaScore viewers), which received a lot of positive reviews, performed better than the last part of the 2011 film Scream 4. The film started with $ 19.3 million. The new “Scream” audience made up 42 percent of those under the age of 25, Sony said. But any success has to come from a variety of demographics, and “Scream” also attracted fans of early franchise records. About 23 percent of ticket buyers are over 35 years old.

Another new film that was popular over the weekend was Belle, a critically acclaimed film from Mamoru Hosoda’s Beauty and the Beast. It debuted in 1326 theaters with $ 1.6 million.

Final figures are expected on Tuesday.
