The direct sequel to ‘Scream 2022’, ‘Scream VI’ is set to make its theatrical debut this Friday. The makers have high hopes for its success as it has already generated a significant buzz. As part of a well-established franchise, the slasher drama is expected to leave a lasting impression at the box office, regardless of its word-of-mouth reception. Although everything seems to be in place for a successful opening, a notable thing may hinder its chart-topping potential.
Scream 6 Box Office Prediction
With an impressive buzz surrounding it, ‘Scream VI’ is expected to perform exceedingly well. Experts anticipate an opening of around $35-40 million from ‘Scream VI’ in over 3,500 theaters across the USA—a significant feat for a small-budget film and could potentially set a new record for the franchise. As previously mentioned, a notable thing is that ‘Scream VI’ may face a challenge from ‘Creed III’. Given the success of ‘Creed III’ in the past week, it is highly likely that it will continue to perform well this Friday. It could potentially have a direct impact on the performance of ‘Scream VI’.
As for its long-term prospects, ‘Scream VI’ is projected to generate between $80-100 million domestically and between $160-180 million at the worldwide box office during its theatrical run. With a production budget of $35 million, ‘Scream VI’ appears to be on track for success and profitability for its makers and production team based on the current expectations surrounding the film. Alternatively, one could speculate that ‘Scream VI’ has the potential to surpass the performance of its predecessor.
However, the film’s long-term theatrical run and box office will also depend on critical reception and reviews. The immense success of ‘Scream VI’ depends heavily on the film’s reviews. Positive reviews will likely result in good box office performance, while negative reviews could potentially lead to a disappointing outcome similar to that of ‘Halloween Ends’, despite being part of a successful series.
