‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’ Debut Eyeing Weekend Box Office Win

Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the fifth installment in the 40-year-old sci-fi comedy franchise, is looking to top the March 24 weekend box office with an estimated $40 million in ticket sales, according to new data from Box Office Pro. The movie made $4.7 million from Thursday previews starting at 2 p.m. across 3,561 locations.

The title again features Paul Rudd in the lead, with special appearances from original Ghostbusters cast members such as Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Annie Potts and Dan Aykroyd, among others.

The tally should be enough to hold off previous box office leaders, Universal Pictures’ Kung Fu Panda 4 (projected $16.8 million) and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Dune: Part Two, with $15.9 million in estimated ticket sales.

The latter currently ranks as the No. 2 grossing theatrical release in 2024 behind the studio’s musical prequel Wonka, with $213.5 million in revenue since its March 1 debut. Both Dune and Wonka feature Timothée Chalamet in the lead role.
