The latest attempt to revive “Ghostbusters” has drawn a sizable audience to movie theaters while the awards darling “King Richard" is struggling.

With a reverence for nostalgia and a few high-profile cameos in its arsenal, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” opened above industry expectations with $44 million in ticket sales from 4,315 locations, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The Sony movie is playing exclusively in theaters. “King Richard” meanwhile failed to meet its modest $10 million projections.

The Warner Bros. film opened simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max and is the latest pandemic era drama to disappoint, despite great reviews and Oscar buzz.
