"Frozen Empire: Ghostbusters" Breaking $42 million or more Friday PM Box Office Opening

FRIDAY PM: Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is currently expected to premiere at 4,345 cinemas for $42 million to $43 million on Friday. 

That Friday is comparable to Ghostbusters: Afterlife's $16.6M first day (with previews), and if that three-day total holds true, it will only fall short by $1 million of the 2021 Jason Reitman-directed film.

With a $4.3M, -51% Friday, a $15.3M, -49% 3-day weekend, and an EOD Sunday running total of $131.7M, Panda 4 is currently playing in 3,805 locations.

Immaculate, the NEON Sydney Sweeney nun horror film, is expected to launch at 2,354 locations for $5 million and earn between $1.8 and $2.2 million on Friday. 

For less than $10 million, Black Bear produced and funded the film. Elevation is releasing the movie in Canada, while Black Bear is handling the UK distribution.

After a second Friday of $1.2M, -60%, a three-day of $4.1M, -46%, and a ten-day gross of $14.3M, Lionsgate's second frame of Arthur the King, which is playing in 3,003 theaters, is expected to finish sixth.

.Late Night With the Devil, a horror film directed by David Dastmalchian and set in 1977, had its global premiere last year at SXSW. 

It is now receiving $1.3M for a $3.3M opening at 1,034 theaters on IFC. 

The horror film, directed by Cameron and Colin Cairness, is based on a live television broadcast that goes horrifically wrong in 1977 and lets evil into people's living rooms across the country.
