Acclaimed thriller ‘A Quiet Place’ grosses P41.7-M in 5 days


Paramount Pictures’ A Quiet Place posted a five-day opening weekend gross of P41.7 million in the Philppines, becoming the studio’s second most successful launch for a horror-thriller, after 2013’s World War Z.

Arriving with some of the year’s most positive reviews, the Emily Blunt-starrer directed by her real-life husband, John Krasinski, has riveted local film critics with some already calling it “the year’s best horror-thriller.”

American reviewers have also likened it’s success to that of the Oscar-winning thriller Get Out, and there is already talks of possible Academy Awards nominations next year.

In the U.S., A Quiet Place earned an additional $32.9 million in its second week of release, bringing its cumulative domestic gross to an impressive $100 million.

“The speed with which ‘A Quiet Place’ has raced to the $100 million mark is a testament to the film’s ongoing appeal and a result of terrific word of mouth,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a film analyst at comScore.

In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.
