It's been a mostly quiet year at the box office thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. But Hollywood is hoping that's about to change in a big way — starting this weekend with a little help from John Krasinski.

Krasinski's horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II, which was delayed from March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is finally out in theaters this weekend, and it had a strong debut in Thursday previews. The film grossed $4.8 million domestically on Thursday night, which Deadline described as an "amazing start." After all, despite the pandemic, that's above the $4.3 million the original A Quiet Place grossed on Thursday night in April 2018. That film went on to take in $50 million in its opening weekend.
