How Much Did Scream Make On Opening Night?

The pandemic has not been kind to movie theaters, but recent releases are working to change the narrative. Blockbuster sequels like Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home raked in millions of dollars, proving that moviegoers are still willing to head to their local cinema for a worthy film. So how did the latest Scream movie make out on opening night? Considering the circumstances, pretty darn good. 

Previews of the latest installment in the Scream franchise were held in about 3,000 theaters on Thursday night. According to Deadline, Scream raked in $3.5 million from those initial screenings alone. The outlet claims that’s a fairly decent number for an R-rated horror film, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Halloween Kills, another recently-released high-profile horror sequel, made about $4.8 million on preview night, but Scream’s profits seem to be on par with past Martin Luther King Jr. weekend releases.
