Franchises seem to be having a moment right now. Last week we saw Creed III Open with a best $58.3 million run and this week we’ll see that Scream series have their best opening ever scream VI exceeded $44.5 million. That’s a whopping $9.8 million more than the champion from the previous series scream 3 $34.7 million when it launched in February 2000 and $14.49 million more than the previous films, $30.01 million when it launched just last year.

Horror movies tend to be preloaded as fans of the genre tend to want to catch the latest scary movie as soon as possible, which is especially true for something like this Scream This plays out more like a crime thriller with the movie getting spoilers all over the internet the second it hits theaters, don’t worry, no spoilers here. I just couldn’t believe this…just kidding! Last years Scream dropped nearly 60% in the second week scream 3 53% lost. So it will be interesting to see what kind of decline this latest edition will have in the coming weeks, especially with stiff competition on the calendar. Of course, with reviews like the 9/10 from our own JimmyO and a 93% audience rating, this one may actually have some decent legs.

Second place this weekend Creed III which at $27.1 million is down 53% from last weekend. This figure matches the previous film’s 53.2% drop and is slightly steeper than the first creed 49.4% decrease. That is of course important here Creed III has hit the $100 million mark much quicker than any other entry in the franchise, and that’s just the beginning as Michael B. Jordan is in the early stages of a full-fledged “creedat Amazon with several projects currently being discussed. As a Rocky Enthusiast, I’m not sure I want to have too many projects related to IP, especially when Sylvester Stallone, the man who couldn’t do it all, isn’t involved. I guess time will tell but one thing is for sure, people are enjoying this latest chapter of the Believe Story.


Third place goes to the production by Sam Raimi 65 starring Adam Driver with an estimated $12.3 million, ahead of forecasts. The marketing for this film painted it as almost Jurassic Park meets Interstellar style action film, and like many other people, I was completely won over by this concept. Unfortunately, the movie we got just doesn’t deliver on the promise of that trailer. I can’t even mince my words: I just didn’t like this movie! It was a bit boring and had several plot points that made little to no sense to me. It looks like critics and audiences will mostly agree with me as it currently has a 36% Rotten Tomatoes score with a C+ Cinemacore. Not all critics hated it as our own Chris Bumbray gave it a 6/10 in his review, not a glowing recommendation but certainly not the 2/10 I would have given the film. I think next week we’ll see this one sink like a log.


This week’s other release, directed by Bobby Farrelly master featuring Woody Harrelson and Kaitlin Olson, the bird himself, took seventh place with just $5.15 million. Not exactly an opening that will make it into the record books. While critics were divided on this film, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 53% (including a solid 8/10 from our own Chris Bumbray), the $5.15 million viewers who saw the film seemed enjoying what was seen with a pretty awesome 96% audience score and an A cinema score.


Rounding out the top 5 Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in fourth place with $7 million as it approaches $200 million domestically, followed by cocaine bear in fifth place with $6.2 million. sixth place Jesus Revolution with $5.17 million and a total of $39.4 million. That’s a pretty solid deal for the faith film. Oftentimes these films create a stir on their opening weekend and then quickly fade into obscurity, but this one has stayed since opening, meaning strong word of mouth.


The top ten is rounded off by James Cameron’s thirteenth week Avatar: The Way of Water It’s raking in another $2.7 million, bringing its domestic total to $674.6 million, as it’s officially ahead of Cameron’s own titanic to become the eighth highest-grossing domestic release of all time. In ninth place comes another niche audience film: Crunchyroll Studios Demon Slayer: To the Swordsmiths’ Village with an additional $1.8 million, down a pretty substantial 81% from last week. And although it’s been out on disc for almost two weeks, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish shows the true staying power of a great family film at the box office, as it adds another $1.6 million to its impressive $179.6 million total.
