EYE TO THE DATA: The five films accumulate a global total of $744 million, with the original 1996 installment being the highest grossing of all with $173 million.
The same medium attributes the good presale to two important factors: the star power that it is enjoying Jenna Ortegamainly for the series Wednesdayand the response from the fandom of Scream in front of the predecessor Scream 5, which became a box office hit upon its theatrical release in January 2022 ($81.6 million total domestic box office, and $140 million global box office). On a personal note, I would add a wonderful marketing campaign as another factor.
