Sony’s “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” took $16 million at the North American box-office in its opening day on Friday, that number including preview screenings on Thursday night.

It’s a number nearly on par with the $16.6 million its 2021 predecessor “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” earned on its opening day.

The film is expected to top domestic charts this weekend with around $42-44 million to be taken in over the three-day period. The film’s B+ CinemaScore isn’t good so its not clear how much life the $100 million budgeted film will have.

The Sydney Sweeney-led nun horror film “Immaculate” took $2 million on Friday and is headed for a $5 million opening weekend overall in fourth place. Critics reviews are good and the film cost under $10 million to produce.

IFC openined “Late Night With the Devil” which took $1.1 million on Friday and will take $2.9 million overall in its opening weekend which should see it take sixth place.

“Dune: Part Two” will hold onto second place with a $4.5 million Friday and $16 million three-day take in its fourth weekend. Its domestic total currently stands at $232 million.

“Kung Fu Panda 4” will be third with a projected $14.5 million for the full weekend – a drop of 52%. “Arthur the King” will take fifth with around $4 million for the three-day in its second weekend.
