‘Scream’ Hits $3.5M In Thursday Night Previews


ParamountSpyglass Media’s Bawl made $3.5M from Thursday night previews that began at 7PM at roughly 3,000 theaters.

That’s a healthy rep for a fright movie at some stage within the pandemic, pacing unhurried Halloween Kills and A Silent Deliver II‘s Thursday nights which were $4.8M each and no longer too far unhurried pre-pandemic MLK weekend thriller Glass which did $3.7M. Glass noticed a 3-day of $40M, but don’t scurry comping Bawl to that M. Night time Shyamalan title but given the erratic moviegoer attendance at some stage within the pandemic.

Jenna Ortega (“Tara”) stars in Paramount Photos and Spyglass Media Community’s “Bawl.”

The Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directed reboot-sequel is arguably the fitting marquee blueprint till Feb. 4, along with whatever final bucks Spider-Man: No Method Dwelling rakes in; that’s when Lionsgate has Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall and Paramount has Jackass Forever. The hope is that Bawl, with a Sinful Tomatoes new critics ranking of 76% and viewers ranking of 90%, can bellow past the rest within the $20M over four-days.
