A Quiet Place Crushes Box Office with $50 Million Debut

Word of mouth quickly propelled the horror/thriller flick, A Quiet Place (a movie that no one was really paying attention to a week ago), to the tune of $50 million. From actor-turned-director John Krasinski, this $17 million budgeted movie is already a success and will most likely have strong legs in the coming weeks as the buzz spreads.

Spielberg's Ready Player One dropped to second with $25.1 million.  At 40%, it wasn't as much of a drop as some were expecting. Overseas, it's doing even better as it already made $294 million... $161 million in China alone. Worldwide, it stands at $391.3 million.

The comedy Blockers, finished in a strong 3rd place with $21.4 million. Which already matches it's $21 million budget.

In other news, Black Panther ($665.4 million) surpassed Titanic ($659.4), to become the 3rd highest grossing movie ever domestically.  Worldwide, it's $1.3 billion is at the heals of Star Wars: The Last Jedi's $1.334 billion for 9th place.
