The numbers are in and from what we see and understand, it has earned $50 million on home country and has also managed to pull in a very respectable $21 million overseas, bringing the total to $71 million. Made with a budget of mere $17 million, the movie studio has given some serious thought on the picture already, and we guess that it’ll only be a matter of time before they announce a sequel to this masterpiece.
In fact, the writers already have something in mind for the second installment –
Talking to a leading web portal, they said, “We even have some of the set-pieces already written for it. In a sense, that’s what you have to base it around. You have to figure out, what is the worst possible situation to put your characters in and go from there. I think you could continue down one path that’s very obvious, or you could spin off into a completely unexpected direction. Which is certainly always interesting for us. The uncharted territory of filmmaking is always where you find the best inspiration.”
Of course, no one is actually surprised by the success this movie is banking. We mean, it’s Emily Blunt and John Krasinski? What can even go wrong?
Breaking away from the stereotypes, the usual horror movies, A Quiet Place is like a breath of fresh air with a subtle yet promising premise – “If they hear you, they hunt you.”
Amazing performances coupled with gasp-inducing jump scares and eerie background score, this quiet place will make sure you shut up and stay glued to your seats.
