Fan anticipation for Scream 6 is at an all-time high, but the fervor for the flick has reached a fever pitch upon the release of exclusive new popcorn buckets to accompany the release. While novelty popcorn buckets have been a great merchandising tactic in the past, it's rare for moviegoers lately to see popcorn buckets for horror movies.
Where can you buy a Scream 6 popcorn bucket for yourself? Keep reading everything you need to know about the spooky popcorn buckets.
Get your 'Scream 6' popcorn buckets exclusively through Cinemark.
The highly collectible Scream 6 popcorn bucket is shaped like Ghostface's mask, with the words "Do You Like Scary Movies?" imprinted on the back. Typically, the buckets are $15, but it appears that resellers have recognized how valuable they are to fans and are reselling them on websites such as eBay for as much as $150.
According to iHorror, the promotion also includes a collectible blood splatter cup and a small Ghostface plush toy for the ultimate Scream viewing experience.
All Scream 6 items are in high demand and were previously exclusive movie theater chain Cinemark. However, due to the extreme fervor around the items, Cinemark has decided to take pity on customers that didn't live near a Cinemark theater and give them the ability to order a popcorn bucket of their very own for $19.99.
On Feb. 24, 2023, a tweet from the official Cinemark account announced the good news. "We were BLOWN AWAY by the love for our Ghostface Popcorn Tub. In an effort to allow everyone the chance to purchase, we are opening up an ONLINE ONLY PRESALE. (International shipping is available!)" The post also linked to a page where users can pre-order the bucket.
Fair warning: pre-orders end on March 17, 2023, so you'd better get in your order before that deadline!
For those unlucky few who miss out on the Scream 6 collectible items, their popularity may encourage Cinemark to produce different collectible items for the next installment of the Scream franchise.
Fans will have to keep their eyes open for updates from the company and remember to watch Scream 6, exclusively in theaters, on March 10, 2023.
