The horror movie shaming cinema snack-eaters

The horror movie shaming cinema snack-eaters

A smart, stylish horror flick, A Quiet Place is Krasinski's third film as a director, but he is best known for an eight-year stint as Jim Halpert in the USA version of The Office. That's one of the highest openings ever for a horror film, beating out the debut cumes of-for example-all the Conjuring and Insidious movies. Krasinski's A Quiet Place will certainly be a horror movie that inspires how other directors create drama and characters within the genre. And because Krasinski devotes such care to familiarizing the viewer with the protagonists, the movie's stakes feel more intimate and more grave. Spielberg's "Ready Player One" (Warner Bros.) took in about $25.1 million for a sturdy two-week domestic total of $96.9 million, according to comScore, which compiles box office data. The film only dropped 40 percent during its second weekend.

The dystopian movie trope has been far overplayed after "The Hunger Games", "Divergent" and even "Maze Runner".

Everyone has theories about why it did so well: Horror movies, from "Get Out" to "It", are having a moment. Over the weekend, Black Panther passed 1997's Titanic, which grossed 659.4 million dollars, though accounting for inflation would put it above $1 billion. Universal's raunchy R-rated comedy - directed by Kay Cannon and starring John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz - released in line with projections for an impressive $21.4 million debut in 3,379 theaters. 10 Cloverfield Lane was deemed a box office and critical hit, while this year's The Cloverfield Paradox was released to Netflix with a mixed to negative reception. When this film gets intense, it will literally have you on the edge of your seat. It's scary, moving, with awesome performances and a totally original idea. "AND GO SEE A QUIET PLACE", he wrote on Instagram.

John Curran's "Chappaquiddick", about the 1969 Ted Kennedy scandal, opened with $6.2 million in 1,560 theaters.

- Ameer (@LocalSlasherBoy) April 7, 2018@johnkrasinski From the very beginning of the movie the entire theater audience seemed afraid to even breathe.

Acrimony ($8,1 million), Sherlock Gnomes ($5.6 million), Pacific Rim: Uprising ($4.9 million) and Isle of Dogs ($4.6 million) round out the top ten. Both films have received decent reviews and it will be interesting to see how these films perform over the next couple weeks.

As far as specialty releases, We Need to Talk About Kevin director Lynn Ramsey's new film You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix, was released by Amazon Studios into three theaters in NY and L.A. where it grossed $132k or $44.3k per venue.

There's no introductory montage to set things up, a la "The Fellowship of the Ring". Go see it NOW! "They never thought about branding it as a Cloverfield film, I think in part because conceptually it was able to stand on its own".
