Directed and co-written by Michael Sarnoski, A Quiet Place: Day One was released in the United States on June 28, 2024, in over 3700 theaters nationwide alongside Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter 1. According to Box Office Mojo, it grossed $22.52 million on its opening day and $52.20 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office, which is undeniably a strong debut for a survival thriller despite clashing with juggernauts like Inside Out 2. Inside the debut numbers, A Quiet Place: Day One’s total numbers currently stand at $117.18 million domestically and $104.50 million overseas, for a global total of $221.68 million[1]

The numbers are excellent, but still, there is a need to analyze the cost before declaring it a box office success. So, according to Variety, the production budget for A Quiet Place: Day One is around $67 million before marketing expenses, and after accounting for marketing, $200 million is the number to aim for success. After a stellar debut, the break-even mark is too easy to achieve, which is enough for critics to declare A Quiet Place: Day One a box office hit for the makers and distributors. Not just it, but going by the numbers, A Quiet Place: Day One will end its box office journey with $300 million globally, which also makes sure of good profit for the makers.

Compared to its predecessors, A Quiet Place: Day One’s debut has the best numbers in the series, surpassing A Quiet Place’s $50 million. The debut numbers are also special because they come with Inside Out 2. Everything is perfect, but still, there are some concerns for the makers in the long run of A Quiet Place: Day One. Not just Inside Out 2, but there are also other big competitors on the way of release, including Despicable Me 4, Twisters, and Deadpool 3, and surviving between these big juggernauts is not going to be easy for the survival thriller to achieve a good long run.

Talking about critical response, A Quiet Place: Day One received a 6.7/10 IMDb rating based on 37k votes, and On Rotten Tomatoes scored 87/100% based on 252 reviews. Read Also: Is The Bikeriders Hit or Flop? How Is The R-rated Crime Drama Doing at Box Office?
