Box Office April 20-22, 2018
A Quiet Place was the Number One film at the box office this weekend for the second time with $22 Million for $132.3 Million so far. This is a significant feat since it did not happen on consecutive weekends. The only other films to do this in my recent memory are Signs and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
This turn of events truly speaks to how receptive audiences are to the quality and inventiveness of A Quiet Place.
Rampage was Second with $21 Million. I Feel Pretty premiered in Third Place with $16.2 Million. Super Troopers 2 premiered in Fourth Place with $14.7 Million. Truth or Dare was Fifth with $7.9 Million.
The films in the Top Ten that opened this weekend at the box office:
