Scream 6 continues to exceed box office expectations as it closes out a record-breaking opening weekend. The film, which is the sixth entry in the meta slasher franchise, is the first time that a Scream film has followed the entry by just one year since Scream 2 in 1997. The new entry, which premiered on March 10, follows the survivors of Scream 2022 to New York City, where a brand new Ghostface killer begins a fresh spate of killings. Legacy characters on hand to help out include tough-as-nails reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and unlikely Scream 4 survivor Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere).

Per Variety, the opening weekend of Scream 6 has continued to thwart expectations by raking in a total of $44.5 million at the domestic box office. This is $1 million above yesterday’s projections, which in turn were $3.5 million above the original top projections for the weekend. This total has handily earned the film the highest opening weekend of the entire Scream franchise.
