‘Scream’ dethrones ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ with $30.6 million box office debut


Paramount Pictures’ fifth Scream film scared up an estimated $30.6 million at the box office to dethrone Spider-Man: No Way Home, which held the top spot for the past four weeks. The horror flick, with returning stars Neve CampbellCourteney Cox and David Arquette, is expected to deliver an estimated $35 million factoring in Monday’s Martin Luther King holiday.

The aforementioned Spider-Man: No Way Home slipped to second place — though the web-slinger has nothing to complain about. The film took in an estimated $20.8 million between Friday and Sunday, and by the end of Monday the latest Spider-Man film should pass $700 million stateside, good enough for fourth place on the list of highest-grossing domestic releases of all time, behind Avatar’s $760.5 million, Avengers: Endgame with $858.4 million and Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens with $936.7 million.

Finishing in third place was Universal’s Sing 2 with an estimated $8.3 million between Friday and Sunday. It’s projected to finish the long weekend with $11 million. The animated musical has earned $119.4 million to date here in the States to go along with $96.3 million internationally, bringing its four-week worldwide total to $215.7 million.

The female-led thriller, The 335, continued to struggle, finishing fourth in its second week of release with an estimated $2.3 million. The film has collected a total of $8.4 million domestically, and $2.6 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $11 million.

Rounding out the top five was The King’s Man, finishing just percentage points behind with an estimated $2.3 million. It is projected to make $3 million by the end of Monday. The King’s Man’s domestic box-office total now sits at $28.7 million. The movie has grabbed $63.8 million overseas, putting its worldwide tally at $92.5 million.
