'A Quiet Place' Weekend Box Office Surprise Makes Some Noise

Quiet Place makes a lot of noise at box office

Until then, however, you should really check out A Quiet Place if you haven't already done so, as it truly is an excellent film and will no doubt go down as one of 2018's best.

Krasinski is not only a good director who delivers a good story but as an actor, his ability to convey many emotions with his eyes and subtle movements is worth noting. How many of us can honestly say that we'd survive in such a world? The laughter riot movie Blockers also managed to earn above $20 million on box-office which got released on April 6. It's one of those star-studded dramas you can catch for free on a streaming service and is worth a view before catching Krasinski's second chance at directing.

Writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods revealed that during development, they themselves considered pitching A Quiet Place as a movie taking place within the Cloverfield universe. The horror-thriller dystopian film brings together real-life couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski for the first time (yes that guy from The Office, and the spunky actress from Devil Wears Prada and Sicario). With this comes a loss of narrative trust which the audience took note of, no longer fearing sound and beginning to giggle at certain character choices and actions. This creates pacing issues and predictability, which ultimately take away from the scares and character building that start out so strong.

There was just one new release in the top five this week and two in the top 10. I'm late to the party but I want to stay forever. It won't be long before we see her star as an Oscar victor.

This is much, MUCH more subtle than a buzzer hidden beneath a seat however, as anyone in the theater that got buzzed in such a manner might very well be pulled down and have a hand clamped over their mouth just to avoid making too much noise.

Have some fun, see a movie this week. The Academy can tell the difference. He encouraged his fans to watch the movie. We all loved the shocking success of Get Out because it's the unexpected that thrills us the most.

All box office figures via Box Office Mojo. Hollywood had forecast closer to $30 million for the film, which cost just $17 million to make.

"A Quiet Place" is also a badly needed hit for Paramount, which has struggled mightily at the box office in recent years while its ownership has sometimes been in limbo. Proving that whispering is scarier than screaming is Don't Breathe, the $89 million earning surprise from the Summer of 2016. The 87% positive reviews were unnaturally high for a horror and helped Breathe breakout. "They never thought about branding it as a Cloverfield film, I think in part because conceptually it was able to stand on its own".
