‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ Eyes $40M+ Opening: Box Office

Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One hit three-week tracking today with an outlook of $40M+ over three days starting June 28. That’s not that far from the last installment, A Quiet Place Part II, which was the first major Memorial Day weekend release as theaters reopened from Covid in 2021 and posted a $47.5M 3-day.

The is pacing similarly to the previous sequel, which was directed by franchise filmmaker John Krasinski, solid among the 13-34 group, and further boosted by interest among Black, Latino and Hispanic and Caucasian moviegoers.

A Quiet Place: Day One is directed by PIG filmmaker Michael Sarnoski, and stars Lupita Nyong’o, Joseph Quinn, Djimon Hounsou and Alex Wolff. Pic follows what happens on the first day the aliens (who have very sensitive ears) come to Earth, and the catastrophe that occurs in one of the biggest cities in the world.

A Quiet Place, through two movies, has grossed over $638M at the global box office. Krasinski has a story by with Sarnoski on A Quiet Place: Day One, and also produced the movie with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. EPs are Vicki Dee Rock and Allyson Seeger.

The first A Quiet Place bested projections off of the heat of its SXSW world premiere and opened to $50.2M stateside, and finaled at $188M domestic and $340.9M global. The sequel, which was originally scheduled for release in 2020 before Covid pushed it to 2021, debuted to $57M over 4-days, and ended its run at $160M domestic, $297.3M WW. Emily Blunt starred in both movies.

A start north of $40M+ for A Quiet Place: Day One is something of a breakthrough for genre movies of late at the B.O., which so far this year have been capped at $8M-$12M openings.

The $100M Kevin Costner starring and directed Horizon: An American Saga, released via New Line, hit tracking, and, oy, it doesn’t look good with a $10M-$15M industry projection with very low single digit first choice and low unaided awareness (the category which indicates moviegoers are thinking about the movie, and don’t need to be prompted by a pollster about it). This is after the movie’s world premiere in Cannes. Hopefully, the projection builds for this three-hour western. Here’s the thing, Costner is on the hook for P&A, and his older skewing, Yellowstone loving audience doesn’t really track with tracking. We’ll see what happens.
