Korea Box Office: ‘Exhuma’ on Top for Fifth Weekend, Passes Blockbuster Milestone

It was expected that "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire" would perform well at the domestic box office, but it ended up performing much more than expected.

After making its debut in 4,345 theaters across North America, the most recent installment in Sony's spooky comedy series has amassed a total of $45.2 million in revenue there. 

At one point throughout the weekend, it appeared like "Frozen Empire" would reach its highest gross of $42 million; but, after a Sunday that was far higher than anticipated, the figures were revised upward.

The movie started off with a global total of $61 million, but it only managed to earn a meager $16.4 million from 25 different markets when it was released in other countries.

Nevertheless, the domestic ticket sales are just a hair ahead of its predecessor, "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," which was released in 2021 and made $44 million to begin with.

This was during a time when the box office was very much in the process of recovering from the epidemic.

It is a hint that the franchise, which has been around for thirty years, has not broadened its audience beyond the core enthusiasts of the business of busting ghosts, who are becoming older.

In addition, "Frozen Empire" has a larger budget than the previous one, with the production costing $100 million and the marketing spending several millions more than anything else.
