A Quiet Place Part II has officially become the first feature film released since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic to gross over $ 100 million at the U.S. and Canadian box offices.
The iconic figure will encourage movie theater owners and exhibitors as they try to recover from the pandemic’s devastating impact on their businesses.
Storyline And Plot
This is the follow-up to John Krasinski’s 2018 hit, which now has collected $109 million from the domestic market and 63 million overseas.
Originally scheduled to hit the screens last year, it eventually released in mid-May.
The film stars Emily Blunt and is set in a world where humans are hunted almost to extinction by predatory blind aients.
Aliens are very sensitive to noise, which means that almost all other surviving humans must remain as quiet as possible to avoid detection.
Box office receipts will be lower than in the previous few years, as a result of many factors.
They include audience hesitancy, particularly among older cinemagoers, and competition from streaming services.
How Are Other Movies Doing?
The latter had evidently been a factor in the dull numbers fetched by the film version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical In the Heights.
The film had hit theaters on the same day it was released on the HBO Max streaming service and grossed $11.4 million in its first weekend.
Variety said the film was a disappointing affair, and it was even more “baffling” considering all the positive reviews they received and the amount Warner Bros. thad disbursed for the movie promotions.
Deadline claims it could be a better job if Warner Bros. held its release back until the autumn, when it might have benefited from “fall film festival word-of-mouth”.
