A Quiet Place Part II Tops Memorial Day Box Office

Posted on June 1, 2021

A Quiet Place Part II dominated the box office over Memorial Day. The film made $47 million over the weekend and over $57 for the long weekend.

The horror sequel was written and directed by John Krasinski and stars his wife Emily Blunt. It features frightening fast creatures that hunt by sound.

A Quiet Place Part II wasn't the only film to do well this weekend. Disney's Cruella starring Emma Stone also had a $21.3 million opening and a $26.5 million take for the Memorial Day holiday period.

The opening is being called a pandemic box office record by NBC and other media outlets. The large weekend box office is a strong signal that moviegoers are ready to put the pandemic behind them. It could bode well for upcoming summer releases.

Spiral finished third with a take of $2.2 million. It was followed by Wrath of Man, Raya and the Last Dragon and Godzilla vs. Kong.
