Films ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ and ‘Cruella’ achieve the highest grossing at the box office

A Quiet Place Part II and Cruella exceeded expectations by achieving the highest grossing at the box office of the entire pandemic over the weekend, which together exceeded $ 80 million.

With 72% of theaters open, this long weekend A Quiet Place Part II movie since Monday was a holiday in the United States – marked the start of the summer season in which the main Hollywood studios will begin to release in theaters the tapes that had been postponed since March of last year.

A Quiet Place Part II, starring Emily Blunt, prevailed in first position with more than 58 million dollars raised (48 if you do not count the holiday Monday), the best opening of the entire pandemic.

The sequel to the acclaimed 2018 horror film was initially due to be released in March 2020, just days before the state of emergency was decreed in the US, which led to it being postponed countless times.

So far, the best premiere during the coronavirus crisis had been Godzilla vs. Kong and his 32 million raised last March.

The good data is not only a boost for theaters, it also supports Paramount’s strategy, which opted to wait for sanitary conditions to improve instead of releasing its film directly by streaming.

The film was released in theaters and Disney + at the same time, albeit with an additional charge of $ 30 on its streaming platform.

Even so, this story starring Emma Stone about the flamboyant villain attracted a significant number of viewers to theaters, as it grossed $ 26 million (21 not counting the holiday Monday).
