A Quiet Place is still going strong at the box office. Although it will be knocked off from the top spot with Avengers: Infinity War, it’ll still be the top horror movie in theaters.
The film already generated over $135 million for Paramount Pictures on a production budget of $17 million. That’s a hefty payout for a very creative way to scare the audiences.
The film marks John Kraskinski’s second feature film in the director’s chair. He stars alongside with his real-life wife Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), Noah Jupe (Suburbicon) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck).
At CinemaCon 2018, Paramount Studios’ chairman and CEO Jim Ginaopulos boasted the success of this horror thriller.
Here’s what he said:
“We’re already working with these guys on a sequel. If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from The Office would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, ‘Well, I should go work at Paramount.'”
Ginaopulos even had a very hilarious intro video before going on stage that mocked the film with a joke.
A Quiet Place is about a family living in silence while being hunted by creatures that can only seek its victims by sound.
I haven’t checked out the film, but it does definitely intrigue me. So what do you think about A Quiet Place? Do you want to see a sequel?
