Krasinski also co-wrote and directed the Paramount Pictures project, which has become a huge hit with critics and fans alike, debuting at number one at the North American box office with $50 million (£35.4 million) - the second best opening of 2018 so far, behind Marvel's superhero blockbuster Black Panther.

A Quiet Place actually has quite a bit in common with an Oscar victor from past year that many deemed "not an Oscar movie": Get Out.

The first box office weekend of April saw a new box office champion as A Quiet Place delivered a solid opening weekend.

"'Definitely... There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer, ' Beck added". The Warner Bros. film tells the story of a teenage gamer (Wade Watts) who finds himself inside an addictive virtual reality world. "It's just really, at the end of the day, who are the characters in this and what does this situation mean to that dynamic?" A Quiet Place is a profoundly emotional viewing experience, one in which each look of terror on Emily Blunt's face registers on multiple levels. Hopefully, a sequel could follow up with something just as thrilling.

Even Krasinski acknowledged to TIME the move is kind of unexpected, saying, "I don't think anybody sees my name and goes, 'That guy-I want to see a horror movie from him'".

In other A Quiet Place news, horror legend Stephen King has publicly praised the movie and especially, its use of silence.

The weekend's highest per-theatre average went to Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here, which brought in $129,911 on three screens for a PTA of $43,304. Yes, something scary's about to happen and the audience is primed to jump, but also we care so deeply about this family and feel so strongly like we know them that we can't bear to watch anything bad happen to them.

"He's a very good father and that's been a great source of comfort to me", Blunt said. On that note, Krasinski's work as a director here should not be overlooked.
