BOX OFFICE: “Scream” may clear $30 million, snow and sleet be damned

A bracing opening weekend for Paramount’s reboot of “Scream,” which is coasting on a pre-snowstorm $30.6 million, $35 million over the MLK holiday projected opening.

It did well under $4 million Thursday night, but a big $13 million Friday pointed to this opening weekend take for “Scream.”

As theaters are closed all around me as I visit family in the snowy Va./NC borderlands, I wonder how much of a hit the weather will through at the “requel.” The actual box office figures tallied from receipts, not estimates, will be lower.

“Spider-Man” will surpass “Black Panther” and take over the fourth spot in all time domestic BO by end of business Monday. It took in another $20 million over the weekend.

“Sing 2” is still taking it in, pulling down another $8.2 million.

“The 355” has opened and closed on the space of a week. $2 3 million this time around.

“The King’s Man” took in $2.1.

The anime sci-fi fantasy feature “Belle” opened wide this weekend, a GKids release that did a healthy $1.6/$2 million three-day/four day with the niche audience.

“Matrix” winds down it’s run with another $815k. A $35 million take makes it a North American bust.
