Box Office: $4.7 million is made in previews for “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire”

The movie Ghostbusters is back in theaters!

The fifth and most recent installment in the terrifying series, “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire,” opened to a $4.7 million box office haul on Thursday.

With an opening of between $43 million and $45 million, Sony and Columbia Pictures’ latest film is predicted to dominate the box office this weekend. It reunites the cast of the 2021 “Afterlife” sequel with the original stars of the 1980s classic. This opening is consistent with “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” the previous movie that brought the brand back, which made $45 million in its first weekend of release during the epidemic. With a $100 million price tag, “Frozen Empire” will need to do better than its predecessor to make a profit (although “Afterlife” only cost $75 million).
The film office revenue of “Frozen Empire” on Thursday is somewhat more than that of “Afterlife,” which generated $4.5 million during its 2021 previews. “Afterlife” earned $204 million globally and $129.3 million in North America at the end of its run.

After the 2021 reboot took place in a peaceful Oklahoma hamlet, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and McKenna Grace are all back for “Frozen Empire,” which returns ghostbusting to New York City. In order to bring ghostbusting into the twenty-first century, Callie, Trevor, and Phoebe—all descended from the first Ghostbuster Egon Spengler—resurrect the Manhattan firehouse alongside Rudd’s Gary Grooberson. Reuniting with the younger cast of “Ghostbusters,” Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and William Atherton battle a chilly ghost that seeks to convert New York City into a frozen wasteland.

The horror film “Immaculate,” starring Sydney Sweeney and Neon, which made its SXSW debut this month, is also premiering this weekend. It plans to launch with about $5 million.
