'A Quiet Place' Creeps Its Way Back to No. 1 on Box Office
Paramount Pictures

The John Krasinski-directed horror movie shoves 'Rampage' from the top spot to reclaim the throne, while Amy Schumer's new comedy 'I Feel Pretty' debuts at No. 3.

AceShowbiz - Horror movie "A Quiet Place" has crept back to the top of the North American box office. The John Krasinski and Emily Blunt film, about a family which has to live in silence in order to hide from monsters which hunt by sound, initially topped the chart upon its release in early April, before making way for Dwayne "The Rock Johnson's "Rampage" blockbuster last week (ends April 15).

However, "A Quiet Place" has now climbed back to number one, grossing an impressive $22 million in its third week in theaters, taking its domestic total to $132 million to date. Monster movie "Rampage" drops to two with $21 million, while Amy Schumer's new comedy, "I Feel Pretty", enters the countdown at three with $16.2 million.

Making its debut at four is "Super Troopers 2", the crowd-funded sequel to the 2002 cult comedy classic, which opens with a strong $14.7 million, despite a poor reception from critics, while Lucy Hale's teen thriller "Truth or Dare" rounds out the top five with $7.9 million in its second week on release.

The relatively quiet box office week comes as film fans brace themselves for the launch of "Avengers: Infinity War" on Friday, April 27. The superhero blockbuster is expected to smash the $200 million barrier in its opening weekend.

However, it's not the only Marvel movie making waves ahead of its release. "Deadpool 2" is already breaking presale records on Fandango, where it became the third-best advance ticket seller of the year, behind "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Black Panther", just 24 hours after sales began.

It is also on track to become the most in-demand R-rated movie in the company's 18-year history, taking the title from 2015's "Fifty Shades of Grey", reports Deadline.com.
