John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place” has made a big noise at the box office. The smart horror film beat Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” and the big studio comedy “Blockers” to win Friday night and the weekend with a trouncing.
“A Quiet Place” took in a whopping $19 million and heads to a $50 million weekend. Like “Get Out,” Krasinski’s movie continues to blaze a trail for a new level of psychological horror.
Meanwhile, “Ready Player One” is up to $78 million with a $6.8 million Friday. It finished third. “Blockers,” at number 2, made $7.1 million Friday night.
And as I noted earlier, “Black Panther” becomes the number 3 movie of all time today.
