Last week, the reboot/continuation of the Scream franchise bumped Spider-Man: No Way Home out of the top spot, but the extremely quiet weekend in theaters saw the Wall-Crawler swing his way back up in his sixth week to a solid $13.5 million which took the film’s domestic total up to $720.4 million.
Scream on the other hand experienced a -61% drop in its second week with $11.7 million taking its domestic total to $50.6 million. While that is roughly the same drop that last entry in the franchise had, Scream 4 only made $7 million it’s second weekend putting the latest take ahead of the game. Sing 2 is expected to be third with $8.27 million, Redeeming Love opens in fourth with $4 million and The King’s Man rounds out the top five with $1.76 million.
While the post Martin Luther King holiday weekend had become a good launching ground for new films, the studios have moved any big openings to later in the year because of Omicron including both Sony’s Morbius and Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
