"This much bigger than expected debut comes in an era of ongoing popularity for the horror genre that in North America alone past year generated over $1 billion in box office", Paul Dergarabedian, a media analyst at comScore, said. "A Quiet Place" received rave reviews from critics and dropped into theaters with the second-best debut of 2018 so far, scoring more than $50 million on its opening weekend.
The film story revolves around a family trying to stay alive by living as silently as possible. Domestically, the Marvel film earned $665.4 million, making it the third-biggest release of all time behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avatar".
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt may have welcomed a new child into their family - Ryan Reynolds! "I love Chris, I've been a friend of his for a while". She gave a great performace and added a whole new layer of depth to the film.
Be sure to watch!
The unsettling burden of the fear of silence plagues the screen immediately in "A Quiet Place". Which is certainly always interesting for us. The audience may also feel the need to hold their tongue to match the silent tone of the film. That's one of the highest openings ever for a horror film, beating out the debut cumes of-for example-all the Conjuring and Insidious movies.
I've seen so many at this point that I have become more than a little picky about what I consider a good scary movie, but A Quiet Place definitely makes my top five favorite modern horrors. I managed about 3 kernels of popcorn throughout ❌. In limited release, Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here and Andrew Haigh's Lean on Pete all did well, too. This aspect of the film brought needed inclusion of the deaf community in an industry where disabled characters are usually played by the able-bodied. Many attribute the films success to the SXSW Buzz, which created both word of mouth and social media praise.
TheWrap even made an etiquette video, urging theatergoers to be quiet during the movie. What an experience! Well done, sir!
Andrew Haigh's new film Lean on Pete, starring Charlie Plummer, was released by A24 into four theaters in NY and L.A. where it grossed just under $47k for the weekend or $12.5k per theater.Not bad, but we'll have to see how wide A24 expands the film.
