THE BOX OFFICE ABOUT TO BECOME A ‘LOUD PLACE’: HORROR SAVES THE THEATER!

This could be the first $100 mil box office weekend I. A year..

Heading into this Memorial Day weekend, more than 70% of theaters are open and Hollywood has two blockbuster releases: “Cruella” and “A Quiet Place Part II.”

The last time the box office topped $100 million over the weekend was March 6, 2020. In non-pandemic times, Memorial Day weekend has averaged around $200 million in ticket sales.

It is very fitting that horror will bring back box office life again!

BLOODY DISGUSTING INTERVIEWS:  INTERVIEWS‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Writer/Director John Krasinski on Why Horror is the Best Storytelling Medium

Meagan Navarro WRITES:

Krasinski cites the movies that influenced both A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, how that journey transformed him into a major horror fan, and why he now believes horror is the best medium for storytelling. “Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.”
