A Quiet Place Part II Tracking a Projected Opening of $60 Million
Deadline is reporting that John Krasinski’s highly anticipated horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II is projected to open with $60 million in an early box office forecast. The sequel is on track to beat A Quiet Place’s $50.2 domestic opening in 2018 and is the only major studio wide release scheduled for the weekend of March 20.
In A Quiet Place: Part II, 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.
Emily Blunt is returning for A Quiet Place Part II alongside cast members Noah Jupe (Suburbicon, Wonder) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck), with John Krasinski set to write, and direct again. It was recently revealed in the film’s Super Bowl spot that Krasinski will reprise his role as Lee in the flashback scenes. Golden Globe nominee Cillian Murphy (Breakfast on Pluto) and Djimon Hounsou will also star in the sequel.
A Quiet Place was from a spec script by Bryan Woods & Scott Beck which was rewritten by Krasinski. It opened in theaters in April of 2018 and grossed over $334 million worldwide on a $17 million dollar budget.
A Quiet Place: Part II is produced by Krasinski and Michael Bay (Transformers) along with Bay’s Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (Ouija, The Purge, Texas Chainsaw Massacre). The sequel is executive produced by Allyson Seeger, Joann Perritano, Aaron Janus.
The sequel is slated to hit the theaters on March 20, 2020.
