The world is progressing towards a wider opening of movie theaters, and it’s time for the big blockbusters to come out to play in anticipation of that happy event. A Quiet Place Part II is finally ready to make a big noise in a theater near you, after a little over a year of delays. And the film is off to a fantastic start so far. As the take from Thursday night screenings is totaled, the results for this John Krasinski/Emily Blunt sequel sound more like a bang than a whimper.
The first night of A Quiet Place Part II screenings produced some astounding results, especially considering that theaters aren’t completely full at the time. According to the data provided by Exhibitor Relations Co., things are returning to normal, with a $5 million showing on the books. For context, this is only with showings beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, and it’s a very impressive notice.
The first day of business for A Quiet Place Part II is a wonderful move in the present box office climate. When contrasted to Godzilla vs. Kong, which made $9.6 million on its first regular day of showtimes, $5 million for a night of early screenings looks very well. It’s a wonderful indicator for the upcoming weekend, especially in an industry where Memorial Day is a bit of a cemetery. IMDB
