“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” En route to Over $ 40 Million Opening Weekend

November 21, 2021

By the middle of the week, the screenings had Ghostbusters: Afterlife followed by an opening weekend in the $ 27-35 million range, which seemed a bit low. After all, fans have literally been waiting for the sequel for 32 years, and demand only increased following Paul Feig’s ridiculed reboot.

Factor in a resurgent box office that has seen October generate the highest returns since January 2020, where numbers were only following 4% of pre-pandemic levels, and you’d expect nostalgia Afterlife skyrocket much higher than analysts predicted.
