Paramount’s “Scream” Exceeds Industry Expectations At Box Office

According to CNN,

Paramount’s “Scream” — the fifth installment in the long running slasher franchise — notched an estimated $30.6 million at the North American box office this weekend, according to the studio. That number exceeded industry expectations, which had projected the film to make closer to $25 million in its weekend debut.

“Scream” also took the No. 1 spot, dethroning “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which has been the top box office draw for roughly a month.

Paramount said the film is projected to make $35 million over the four day holiday weekend. The latest film in the franchise also brought in more than the opening of the last installment, “Scream 4,” which opened to $18 million in 2011, according to Comscore.
