Horror fans are making a lot of noise for A Quiet Place Part II.
The John Krasinski-led sequel regained the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office this past weekend with a healthy $11.6-million take, according to movieweb.com. The film edged out the musical In The Heights, which grossed $11.4 million in its opening weekend.
The latest numbers for A Quiet Place Part II moved the film across the $100-million mark domestically, making it the first movie in that rarified air in the pandemic era. As of this writing, the sequel has pulled down $108 million domestically and more than $161 million worldwide.
A Quiet Place Part II–written and directed by Krasinski–follows the Abbott family as they venture forth from their home and into “the terrors of the outside world as they fight for survival against the creatures that hunt by sound.” The film stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.
The success of the sequel has led to plans for a spinoff of the growing franchise–as reported here in Horror News Network. This film–written by Jeff Nichols–is slated to hit theaters March 31, 2023.
The previous weekend’s box office champ–The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It–dropped to fourth place, earning $10 million this past weekend. This horror entry has raked in nearly $112 million worldwide.
