“A Quiet Place: Day One” Earns $53 Million in Opening Weekend, “Inside Out 2” Tops Box Office

“A Quiet Place: Day One,” the prequel to the popular horror franchise, has made a strong debut at the box office, earning an estimated $53 million in its opening weekend in North American theaters. This figure surpasses expectations and marks the highest opening for the franchise. The film stars Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn and is distributed by Paramount.

Despite its success, “A Quiet Place: Day One” did not secure the top spot on the box office charts. That honor went to Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2,” which added an estimated $57.4 million in its third weekend, crossing the $1 billion mark globally. The rankings may change when final figures are released on Monday.

The summer movie season is showing signs of improvement, although it still lags behind previous years due to the ongoing pandemic. “Inside Out 2” continues to perform exceptionally well, becoming the first 2024 release to surpass $1 billion in just 19 days, setting a record for an animated film.

Directed by Michael Sarnoski and rated PG-13, “A Quiet Place: Day One” is also performing strongly internationally, earning $45.5 million in 59 markets. The film has already grossed $98.5 million worldwide, with a production budget of $67 million.

Chris Aronson, the head of domestic distribution for Paramount, attributes the success of the “A Quiet Place” franchise to its strong fan base and positive reception from both audiences and critics. The film opened higher than its predecessors, “A Quiet Place” and “A Quiet Place: Part II.”

The box office landscape currently favors established franchises and familiar titles, as seen with the success of “Bad Boys: Ride or Die.” However, there is also diversity in genres, with two Indian films, “Kalki 2898 AD” and “Jatt & Juliet 3,” making the top 10.
