The terror of ‘Scream VI’ dominates the US box office

LOS ANGELES — The horror film “Scream VI” was the highest grossing this weekend in the United States, taking in $44.5 million domestically, according to industry estimates released Sunday.

This exceeded the 32 million raised by “Scream 2” in 1997. The good performance is another sign that the horror genre is one of the few guaranteed successes at the American box office.

Meanwhile “Creed III,” which dominated the box office last weekend, passed a second-place finish with $27.1 million in its second weekend.

The sci-fi film “65” was in third with about 12.3 million dollars in 3,405 theaters. It was better than expected since it received very bad reviews. Also, it was reported that he had a production budget of 90 million dollars before tax discounts.

“Champions,” in which Woody Harrelson plays a sports coach trying to lead a team to the Special Olympics, opened to $5.2 million in 3,030 theaters.
