(Newser) – John Krasinksi's A Quiet Place has opened with a thunderous $50 million in ticket sales for the year's second-best debut after Black Panther. The Paramount Pictures thriller far exceeded expectations to land one of the top opening weekends for a horror release. Directed by Krasinski, and starring him and real-life wife Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place is a badly needed hit for Paramount. It's the studio's best non-franchise opening since 2014's Interstellar. Steven Spielberg's virtual-reality adventure Ready Player One slid to second with $25.1 million in its second weekend. The R-rated comedy Blockers also shrugged off a recent comedy slump in theaters for a solid $21.4 million debut. The film, about parents trying to keep their daughters from losing their virginity, stars Leslie Mann and John Cena. (Read more a quiet place stories.)
