'A Quiet Place' is a huge No. 1 at the box office

'A Quiet Place' is a huge No. 1 at the box office

Blunt, 35, played junior assistant Emily Charlton in the 2006 film.

The PG13 film, which cost US$17 million to make, stars the married-in-real-life John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as a couple trying to evade creatures who respond to the slightest noise.

A Quiet Place will attempt to retain the top spot on the box office chart when it faces off against the horror film Truth or Dare and the action thriller Rampage, both opening on April 13, 2018.

This movie has spine-tingling moments and outright horror.

The two put in weeks of prep going over the script and ideas before getting to set so that it would be smooth sailing when it got to actually making "A Quiet Place", which follows a family who must live in silence as they hide from monsters who hunt anything that makes a sound. "In the last few years there have been some of the best movies period with these fantastic, elevated horror movies". The film opened in eleventh place with $4.1 million. Spielberg's Ready Player One (Warner Bros) took in about US$25.1 million for a worldwide total of US$391.3 million.

Universal Pictures' raunchy comedy "Blockers" opened in third place with $21.4 million, surpassing analysts' predictions of $15 million to $20 million. But you don't get to a number like this without breaking free of the genre. It is now the third-highest-grossing movie ever at the USA box office (not adjusted for inflation), unseating "Titanic", which finished its domestic run with $659.3 million. Although her role in the movie helped to bring Blunt attention early in her acting career, she's unsure if reviving it is a good move.

Meanwhile, the movie becomes the second blockbuster which received an impressive opening after the movie "Black Panther" ($202 million). Ironically, Krasinski admits he's not that into horror movies.

More than a year later, we see the same family in their homestead, each deeply affected by the loss of their family member. $4.6 million, bringing its total to $12 million before its nationwide expansion this coming Friday.

Chappaquiddick opened in seventh place with $6.2 million while The Miracle Season failed to open inside the top ten.

It was a good weekend all around for movie-going in the USA as revenue spiked more than 36% over the same frame previous year. "The buzz that we were able to generate from the screening before 1,200 people and critics really launched the film", Form told the Hollywood Reporter Monday. The Arclight Hollywood in L.A. greatly helped with that average as Phoenix introduced or did QnAs after nearly every single screening, which is a rarity as far as these things go.

Screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, who share writing credit for the horror filmwith director and star John Krasinski, have said the idea for the pic started with their admiration for the legends of silent cinema, such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
