‘NO WAY HOME’ Retakes Its Crown in Round 2 With ‘SCREAM’

After a short one-week sabbatical, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” once again topped the box office as “Scream” (2022) took a 58.7% drop in its second weekend. “Scream” (2022) took in another $12.4 million this weekend, already topping the domestic total of “Scream 4” ($38,180,928) but is still short of catching “Scream 3” ($89,143,175).

“No Way Home” swung back to first place in its sixth weekend, grossing $14,125,000 and bringing its domestic total to $721,010,988 and worldwide total to $1,691,110,988 (sixth all-time).

The two new releases, “Redeeming Love” and “The King’s Daughter,” grossed $3,710,000 and $750,000 respectively. It is notable to point out that the former was in fewer theaters (1,903) than the latter (2,170) despite grossing almost $3 million more.

Some smaller releases continued to expand their theatrical rollout. “Parallel Mothers” was added to 62 more theaters and had a +43% bump, grossing $170,361. “Drive My Car” added 31 theaters and grossed $96,250 (+25.9%). Finally, “Flee” added 35 theaters to its rollout and grossed $36,380 (+2,664.4%).

Joe Wright’s (“Pride & Prejudice,” “Atonement”) “Cyrano” pushed its limited theatrical run from January 28 to February 25, thus leaving next weekend without a wide release. “Sundown,” a small film about a man sojourning in Mexico and starring Tim Roth is scheduled for a limited release next weekend, however. It won’t be until February 4 that we get numerous wide releases as “Moonfall” and “Jackass Forever” are both slated for release.
