Scream VI, the highly anticipated sequel, is expected to smash box office records and break the long-standing record set by its predecessors. Fans of the franchise are looking forward to the release of the next installment, which is expected to push the horror genre to new heights.
The excitement around Scream 6 is palpable, and box office expectations are skyrocketing. It’s safe to say that this film will be a smash hit. It will be released in cinemas around the nation on March 10, 2023.
Scream VI’s Tracking Records
According to a recent Deadline report, the news of the upcoming installment is expected to create a new box office record. According to its tracking statistics, Scream 6 from Paramount and Spyglass Media is expected to set a franchise-opening record of $37 million in the United States.
The new sequel has large shoes to fill since last year’s Scream grossed $81 million in the US and $140 million globally. These figures will serve as the touchstone for the newest installment’s box office performance.
Despite initial pessimism over Scream’s return last year, the franchise has proven that a successful horror series cannot lie inactive permanently. As the premiere of Scream VI approaches as Ghostface prepares to terrify New York City, it looks like the franchise’s opening weekend will establish new marks.
The latest installment of the “Scream” series follows the four survivors of the previous Ghostface murders as they leave Woodsboro and begin on a new adventure.
Scream has always followed the motto “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” as have many other great holiday franchises. Yet, after five films set in the same tiny suburban town, Scream 6 marks the most major shift in the franchise’s history by transferring the action to the crowded streets of New York. This means Ghostface will no longer be able to stalk tranquil neighborhood streets and slaughter their victims, but will instead be traversing packed subways and engaging in gunfights in local businesses. As previously stated by actress Melissa Barrera, the film will also increase brutality.
While the Scream franchise has always included horrible fatalities, it may pale in contrast to current horror films such as Terrifier 2 and the forthcoming Evil Dead Rising. Scream VI, on the other hand, looks to have the potential to be acceptable for youngsters. Nonetheless, Ghostface appears to be crueler than in previous films, most likely due to the situation necessitating a more direct approach with little ability to escape.
