Monday Morning Box Office Report: A Quiet Place Brings Down the House


John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place proved to be anything but at the box office over the weekend as the movie pulled in an estimated $50 million, easily knocking Ready Player One from the top spot. That is one of the best debuts ever for a horror movie, nowhere near last year’s It ($123 million), but almost on par with Paranormal Activity 3 as an example. Ready Player One had a decent second weekend, adding another $25 million, while R-rated comedy Blockers opened in third with $21.4 million. Black Panther fell to fourth as it passed Titanic to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time. (At this point, it looks like it will still be in theatres when The Avengers: Infinity War is released.) I Can Only Imagine rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, Chappaquiddick opened in seventh with a respectable $6.2 million, while Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs jumped into the top 10 after expanding to over 500 screens.
