John Krasinski must be on the phone to Jordan Peele at all hours. He’s joined Peele in the Horror 100 million club. Tomorrow night, Monday, “A Quiet Place” will cross the $100 million mark after just 11 days. It’s a great achievement.
For its second weekend, “A Quiet Place” made $32.6 million and brought its US total to $99.6 million. Still it finished second to The Rock’s “Rampage,” a cleverly made picture that got a PG-13 rating. The rating and mild material (despite bad reviews) pushed “Rampage” to $34.5 million.
The rating made it possible to soak up teens and tweens by the boatload.
More horror news: “Truth or Dare” from Blumhouse made $19.1 million over the weekend. It only cost $3 million to make. Wow. And no, it’s not a remake of Madonna’s “Truth or Dare,” although that was kind of a horror movie itself.
