“A Quiet Place: Day One” is making noise at the box office. The prequel earned an estimated $53 million in its first weekend in North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday.It’s both a franchise best and significantly more than expected.

Going into the weekend, prerelease tracking had “Day One” pegged for a $40 million debut, but audiences were clearly more enthusiastic to see the action-horror starring Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn and released by Paramount.The same could not be said for Kevin Costner’s “Horizon: An American Saga—Chapter 1,” which opened to $11 million.The ”Quiet Place” victory wasn’t quite enough to snag the coveted first place spot on the charts, though.That honor again went to Disney and Pixar’s juggernaut “Inside Out 2,” which added an estimated $57.4 million in its third weekend in theaters, and crossed $1 billion globally.There’s a distant possibility that the places will shift when actuals are released Monday.

But either way it’s good news for movie theaters in a summer season that’s finally heating up but still running far behind last year (down 19%) and pre-pandemic norms (down 36% from 2019).“Inside Out 2” continues to be a box office phenomenon, the likes of which the industry hasn’t seen since “Barbie” almost a year ago.In just three weeks of release, it’s earned nearly $470 million in North America and $545.5 million internationally, bringing its global total to $1.01 billion.The sequel is the only 2024 release to cross the billion dollar mark and it did it in just 19 days, a record for an animated film.“The film’s stunning global success once again illustrates that audiences the world over will respond to compelling, entertaining movies, and that they want to enjoy them.
