Scream 5 is on the road to becoming the highest-grossing movie during the pandemic. The latest installment of the horror franchise, which started 25 years ago, grossed $30.6 million in North America over the opening weekend.
According to the predictions, the sequel is on its road to becoming the biggest box office out of all five sequels, with a predicted 35 million earned over four days of opening. Scream 3 earned 34 million on its opening weekend, but keep in mind that this was in the pre-pandemic era.
Scream 2022 already earned over 90 percent of all profit Scream 4 made in the domestic cinemas. Additionally, the fifth sequel pushed Spider-Man: No Way Home from the throne.
The new Ghostface is back terrorizing the small city of Woodsboro. The movie, the first one not directed by the late Wes Craven, follows Sidney Prescott as a mom and a wife. The original cast includes Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette.
Spider-Man grossed a little over 20 million over the weekend, bringing the total to 698 million dollars. With Sing 2, The 355, and The King's Man, it was an exciting weekend for theaters, despite the omicron ruining all red carpet events.
Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet, Scream 5 has a fair chance of becoming one of the most profitable slashers. It also received decent reviews from the critics, carrying a perfect blend of nostalgia with some new faces, following the well-known and liked formula Wes Craven started.
The identity of Ghostface will keep you on the edge of your seat, while the intro is an homage to the iconic original Scream and Drew Barrymore's scene.
