Boycott doesn't haunt Scary Movie 4


Despite the campaign led by Spanish exhibitors Yelmo Cineplex, Cinesa, Ábaco and Cinebox against major distributor Buena Vista International (see news), Scary Movie 4 was the most successful title this past weekend. Screening in 400 theatres, the film sold 269,797 admissions and grossed over €1.4m.

This box office results were, however, low compared to those of Scary Movie 3 in its opening weekend in 2004. Screening in 418 theatres, that film attracted 617,425 moviegoers and grossed over €3m.
