A Quiet Place is getting a sequel

Get ready to return to A Quiet Place. Paramount head Jim Gianopulos revealed at CinemaCon that the John Krasinski-starring horror film will be getting a sequel following its monstrous performance at the box office. (via Variety)

"We're thrilled to say that we're already working on a sequel to A Quiet Place," Gianopulos said. He did not offer any further details on the project and didn't reveal if Krasinski, who also directed and co-wrote the film, would be returning.

A Quiet Place follows a family who live on a haunted farm where the paranormal creatures are attracted by noise. Because of this, they try to keep as silent as they can, using sign language to communicate and being sure to avoid all potential scratches, bangs, and clangs. However, when the mother (Emily Blunt) gets pregnant again, they have to figure out a way to survive what is sure to be a noisy night.

Krasinski stars alongside his real-life wife Blunt in the film, which was co-written by Impulse's Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. The movie, which also features Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, has been hailed by critics with a 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans have also been in favor of the film, awarding it a B+ CinemaScore.

Initial box office expectations were in the high teens or low twenty millions for A Quiet Place's opening weekend, but as buzz built, those were raised to somewhere in the mid-thirties. However, the movie blew even those higher expectations out of the water thanks to strong word-of-mouth and social media buzz and wound up earning a massive $50 million opener. It carries just a $17 million budget. 

The film, which had the eighth biggest April opening weekend of all time, has earned $134.8 million domestic to date, making it the second highest grosser of the year thus far, after Black Panther. It is also the seventh highest grossing supernatural horror film of all time. The film currently sits at $213.2 million worldwide. (via Box Office Mojo)
