The box office collection is particularly impressive as the film has also been simultaneously released on HBO Max at no extra cost to subscribers. The film released across 3,102 North American venues and surpassed the earlier projected figure. 

As for A Quiet Place Part II, the film's box office collection has set a pandemic-record so far as it collected $48 million in its first extended holiday weekend. However, this week, the film witnessed some stiff competition from The Conjuring: The Devil Made me Do It across North America. The thriller raked in $19.5 million from 3,744 theaters, boosting its total US box office collection to a massive $88 million.
