The film earned a 97% "certified fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an 86% audience score. "There was a lot of momentum going into the weekend that never stopped", Davies said. "John Krasinski has emerged within a awesome film maker with a narrative that's pretty uncomplicated, but has clearly resonated with crowds".

Ready Player One dropped to second place with $25.1 million and is closing in on $100 million domestically. The Warner Bros.' film has been a strong contender overseas, where it has made $294.4 million.

A Quiet Place's fellow new wide release Blockers came in at third place with $21.4 million, not a disappointing sum for an R-rated comedy.
