Carried by a well-crafted teaser, word of mouth about the content of the feature film, and the power of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film has overtaken Titanic at the box office, and is slowly approaching Avengers Endgame.
But after five weeks of unchallenged domination in North America, John Watts movie featuring Tom Holland, Zendata, Benedict Cumberbatch or even Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon was dethroned. Before finding out who took first place, keep in mind that Spider-Man No Way Home is always second, since it generated $20.6 million over the past week in Canadian and US theaters. Recipes that continue to be very honest after so long, but have gone down enough to to allow to Scream, fifth film of the license, of take the lead in the box office across the Atlantic.
Released last week, the film by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who therefore replaced Wes Craven, generated $30.6 million, and is expected to reach $35 million thanks to Bank Holiday Monday underway in the United States. As expected, this new Scream marks the return of Ghost Face, 25 years after the events of the first opus, but brings back several actors from the license, including Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox.
Of course, a new gang of teens is targeted, and the various events associated with the investigation, bring back to life things that have been buried for many years. This new group is embodied by Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid and Mason Gooding. It is also interesting to note that Kevin Williamson, creator and historical screenwriter of the license, is back in the role of executive producer.
