Scream is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing film of all time.
According to studio estimates released Sunday, the Paramount Pictures feature “Scream” revival grossed $30.6 million in its first weekend.
“Scream,” a self-described “requel” that is both the fifth picture in the franchise and a remake with a new, younger cast, dominated all releases.
It is expected to generate $35 million, including Monday’s grosses, according to Paramount. ‘Scream,’ which cost $24 million to produce, brought in an additional $18 million in 50 overseas countries.
The film’s debut is also greater than Scream 4, which grossed $19.3 million in 2011.
Meanwhile, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” fell to second place in the box office but continued to climb the charts.
Here’s a summary: Twenty-five years after a string of gruesome killings stunned the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new murderer has worn the Ghostface mask and is targeting a group of teens in an attempt to resurrect secrets from the town’s horrific past.
Neve Campbell (“Sidney Prescott”), Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) and David Arquette (“Dewey Riley”) return to their iconic roles in Scream alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
