Now that theatres are opening across the globe, it’s clear that movie fans have been itching to watch films on the big screen once again.

Box Office Mojo reports that this weekend saw the biggest U.S. box office opening since 2020. John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place II took the top spot earning 58.5 million over four days, thus kicking off the winter movie season.

Fandango movie commenter Erik Davis, breaks down why this box office win for a Quiet Place is a big deal:

We can all be happy about the resurgence of going to the movies, but many are still wary of stepping foot in a theatre as we are still in a pandemic. Individuals will have to stay vigilant to protect their health because clearly, you can’t trust everyone who walks around without a mask.

A Quiet Place II is in theatres now.
