Box Office Bonanza as “A Quiet Place 2” Makes Noise with $19.3 Mil Opening Night, Heads to $57 Mil Weekend


The box office is back!

“A Quiet Place Part 2” made an astounding $19.3 million last night in wide release. John Krasinski’s middle chapter horror film is looking at a $47 million weekend and $57 million for the four day Memorial Day holiday.

“Cruella” lagged with $7.7 million, but it’s also available on Disney Plus, so we don’t know really how it was accepted.

The second part of Krasinski’s trilogy for Paramount is the story of the weekend, however. How could it not be? And they’re going to see people going back for a second round. The movie is short, and exciting. It’s almost like a carnival ride. You want to go right back and get on line again.
