Scream | January 14, 2022 | Profit of $56.7M

Recommended Posts




Spyglass absorbed the Dimension library and in doing so reinvigorated its star horror franchise Scream. In 2011, the fourth movie in the Kevin Williamson-conceived franchise fell flat with a $38 million domestic box office take, and under $100M global gross. Paramount, which went 50-50 with Spyglass on the new Scream‘s $24M production cost, shook up the fifth film, with Ready or Not filmmakers Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, a new cast appealing to diverse audiences including on-the-rise stars Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega (this movie debuting before she exploded on Netflix’s Wednesday series), and returning core cast members Courteney Cox, Neve Campbell and David Arquette. Those moviegoers making their way to the cinema post-Spider-Man: No Way Home and at a time when there were Omicron fears liked what they saw, delivering a $33.8M four-day MLK start for Scream and reenergizing new and old audiences for the next generation of the franchise. Paramount and Spyglass promptly put Scream VI into production, and that pic opened in March to a record domestic high of $44.4M and boasts a current cume of $162.5M; the new sequel takes the story’s action to New York City for the first time, and had Ortega’s Wednesday disciples showing up.
