The new Scream film (Scream 5), produced by Paramount Pictures and Spyglass, got off to a great start in the U.S. last Friday, grossing $13.35 million when it opened Friday, dethroning Spider-Man: No Way Home.

One after the other record-breaking film had been the most-watched film for weeks. Scream 5 became the first film to be watched more than Spider-Man: No Way Home in a day since its release, dethroning Spider-Man, which remained in first place until last Friday.
Scream 5 goes back 25 years after the first murders
Scream 5 was paramount pictures’ biggest opening since A Quiet Place 2, which grossed $19 million on its opening day. Paramount Pictures has made awareness high this time around, releasing a movie trailer with little spoilers for viewers and television and online trailers with no spoilers at all. This increased the level of curiosity in people and the motivation to go to the movies came.
Scream 5 marks 25 years after the original series of murders in Woodsboro. Twenty-five years later, a new Ghostface has appeared, and Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) is back in business to uncover the truth. We also revise David Arquette and Courteney Cox in the film.
