‘A Quiet Place’ grosses P41.7M in five days

Paramount Pictures’ A Quiet Place posted a five-day opening weekend gross of P41.7 million in the Philppines, becoming the studio’s second most successful launch for a horror-thriller, after 2013’s World War Z.

Arriving with some of the year’s most positive reviews, the Emily Blunt-starrer directed by her real-life husband, John Krasinski, has riveted local film critics with some already calling it “the year’s best horror-thriller.”  American reviewers have also likened it’s success to that of the Oscar-winning thriller Get Out, and there is already talks of possible Academy Awards nominations next year.
