MANILA, April 23, 2018 – The sound of silence has never been louder as Paramount Pictures’ surprise hit A Quiet Place climbed up to the No. 1 spot in Philippine box-office for its 2nd week of release, earning more than its opening weekend. This according to Columbia Pictures, the film’s local distributor.

For the period April 18-22, the suspense thriller about a family trying to survive in a world with aliens that hunt based on sound, grossed a thunderous P79.5 million, almost doubling-up its opening weekend gross of P41.7 million. A rare feat that only happens because of fantastic world of mouth and repeat viewings.

Current total earnings for the Emily Blunt-John Krasinski team-up now total at a whopping P144.9 million, becoming the 9th biggest grossing horror film of all-time and 2nd biggest thriller in Paramount Pictures’ history, after World War Z.

Columbia Pictures forecasts A Quiet Place to continue its phenomenal run this week as most screens are extending exhibition, despite new movies coming out.

In the U.S., A Quiet Place brought its domestic tally to $132 million; globally, it has racked up $206 million, with major markets China and Japan still to open.

In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.

Paramount Pictures in association with Michael Bay presents a Platinum Dunes Production of A Quiet Place, directed by John Krasinski and starring Emily Blunt, Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe.
