“The former, a nearly silent sequel to the 2018 film ‘A Quiet Place,’ nabbed a notable $4.8 million from 3,000 U.S. venues on Thursday. Meanwhile, Disney’s ‘Cruella’ collected $1.4 million in Thursday evening previews from 3,892 locations.”
There is a hope these two movies will help boost movie theater revenue.
Variety touches on this and stated:
“Through the extended weekend, the two films should provide a much-needed boost to movie theaters after a nearly desolate 14 months due to the pandemic. The hope, among cinema operators and Hollywood studios, is that ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ and ‘Cruella’ will kick off a delayed summer movie season that continues with ‘In the Heights’ (June 11), Universal’s ‘Fast and Furious’ sequel “F9” (June 25) and Disney and Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ (July 9), among others.”
