“A Quiet Place: Day One” roars to record-breaking franchise best, and 2nd biggest opening weekend for 2024 in the PH

A Quiet Place: Day One sets the biggest opening weekend in the history of the franchise, with a global tally of $98.5M. The film is also making noise locally as the 2nd biggest opening weekend in the Philippines for 2024.

Set in one of the loudest cities on Earth, the third installment of the A Quiet Place franchise takes audiences back to the day the world went quiet, putting the city of New York on a standstill against hostile creatures that attack anything that makes noise.

IGN praises A Quiet Place: Day One, as the best in the series, writing “It’s impressive just how great A Quiet Place: Day One is. Not that the first two Quiet Place movies weren’t good – they’re both strong films in their own right. But this spinoff/prequel to those earlier films introduces new characters in a new setting that successfully elevates both the tension and the emotional impact of John Krasinski’s nearly dialogue-free horror films. The result is the series’ best movie to date.”

The Guardian affirms the strength and impact of the film, lauding the cast and choice of setting. “It could be the idea of setting the Quiet Place prequel in New York, one of the noisiest places on Earth. Maybe it’s the casting of the always excellent Lupita Nyong’o in a textured and complex role – she plays Sam, a poet and a terminal cancer patient who just wants to live a little before she dies. All of this combines to ramp up the impact of A Quiet Place: Day One considerably, compared with its immediate predecessor.”

The Los Angeles Times notes the unique premise of the film.
