Horror film ‘Quiet Place’ makes North America box office noise due to less number of covid cases the theatre is been opened for all and movies are starting to come back.
“The symbolic importance of this Memorial Day Weekend to the movie theater industry cannot be overstated,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a senior analyst at Comscore. The numbers, he said, “tell an indisputable story about the resilience and continued relevance of the big screen experience.”
The latest “Quiet Place” — a John Krasinski-directed sequel to the popular 2018 film about a young family trying to outwit horrific blind monsters with frighteningly keen hearing — is projected to take in $58.5 million for the four-day Memorial Day weekend, said industry watcher Exhibitor Relations.
That pushed the combined gross for the weekend’s top 12 films to $78.1 million, up from $18.8 million the previous weekend and from a flat-lining zero in the corresponding 2020 weekend.
