The horror film has been praised by critics and moviegoers who were taken aback by the use of silence in the movie as well as the clever sound design that adds a heavy amount of tension throughout the duration of A Quiet Place.

The 35-year-old beauty - who has kids Hazel, four, and Violet, 22 months, with her husband John Krasinski - has revealed that having an open and honest dialogue has helped to sustain her marriage.

"A Quiet Place", from Paramount, is crushing early forecasts, which had placed it in the $30 million range.

A Quiet Place, John Krasinski's new movie that stars himself and wife Emily Blunt, made $50 million at the box office this weekend in its opening weekend debut! The film, which earned a B+ CinemaScore, now holds the title for the second biggest opening weekend of the year to date, after Marvel's Black Panther.

It looks like Steven Spielberg has gotten people excited about going to the movies again, because we're going to get another $40 million plus opener this weekend.

Blockers opened to $21.4 million from 3,379 cinemas, one of the best showings in recent times for an R-rated comedy (one exception is Universal's Girls Trip., which launched to $31 million in summer 2017). Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena star alongside Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Indira Viswanathan and Gideon Adlon.

Thanks to the hype around the movie, which at one point had a flawless 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it was able to fend off strong competition.

"Chappaquiddick", starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy, is set to take in around $5 million in its opening weekend from 1,560 theaters.

Rounding out the top five were Black Panther and I Can Only Imagine, which brought in $8.4 and $8.3 respectively. Globally, Black Panther has grossed US$1.29 billion.

But it wasn't the only film that did well at the box office this weekend!

Two other newcomers, Chappaquiddick and The Miracle Season premiered slightly above estimates. The film, which has a B CinemaScore, was predicted to bring in between $2 and $4 million. "The Miracle Season" was directed by Sean McNamara, the film stars Helen Hunt and William Hurt.
