A Quiet Place Makes A Big Noise At The Box Office

Movie Review: 'A Quiet Place' This Critic Has No Idea Why Everyone Else Loves This Movie

As I type this, John Krasinski's A Quiet Place has become the second-highest grossing Hollywood film globally (after Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One), and has topped the North American box office in its opening weekend.

Filmmakers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, who wrote and shopped around A Quiet Place before writer-director John Krasinski came on board the project, have been expressing a lot of joy in interviews this last week regarding how quickly their movie came together once a couple of stars were attached.

Andrew Haigh's new film Lean on Pete, starring Charlie Plummer, was released by A24 into four theaters in NY and L.A. where it grossed just under $47k for the weekend or $12.5k per theater.Not bad, but we'll have to see how wide A24 expands the film. "I think this is about great storytelling", said Kyle Davies, head of domestic distribution for Paramount. After his second go, Reynolds took to Twitter to rave about it, tweeting, "I've seen #AQuietPlace twice in one week". The film was very enjoyable, surprising you within the first few minutes. We were actually talking to an executive there about this film, and it felt from pitch form that there might be crossover, but when we finally took the final script in to Paramount, they saw it as a totally different movie. M. Night Shyamalan's earlier, more similar to A Quiet Place, and scarier movie, Signs, debuted with an audience of 10.3 million. The lack of dialogue freed Krasinski from the pitfall of overwriting the backstories and narrative behind each character. The film also starsMillicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. I just got out of A Quiet Place, you have to go see this movie! Most horror films that open well around $25 million cap out around $50 million.

Of course, even though a large portion of the film revolves around the struggles of the Abbotts themselves, it still has to build a credible menace around the creatures that are haunting them. As we mentioned above, the buzz surrounding A Quiet Place at the moment is palpable, with many people hailing it as one of the genre's finest efforts in some time - a sentiment we agree with wholeheartedly.

"I had all these notes, all these drawings". If you want know why casting Blunt as a stressed-out mom made sense, check her out as a strung-out boozehound on the Train. "She was just so a part of this process that it's the best collaboration I'll ever have".

Krasinski's knack for directing comes from a long background in television and film.

"A Quiet Place" was announced in March 2017, before Paramount's new management team was assembled. "If anybody was going to let me down, it was just me", he added.
