In an utterly unsurprising outcome, “A Quiet Place” conquered the US weekend box office.

Per studio estimates, the critically acclaimed horror film will close its first weekend with $50.0 million in receipts. The figure will more than double that of the weekend’s #2 film.

“Ready Player One,” that #2 film, added $25.0 million to its haul. Its cumulative gross now stands at $96.9 million.

New comedy “Blockers” debuts at #3 with $21.4 million, while “Black Panther” grabs #4 with $8.4 million.

Now credited with $665.4 million in cumulative receipts, “Black Panther” claims #3 on the all-time leaderboard. Only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avatar” have earned more at the US box office.

“I Can Only Imagine” takes #5 on this weekend’s chart. It earned another $8.4 million, bringing its cumulative gross to an impressive $69.1 million.

— In addition to “A Quiet Place” and “Blockers,” this weekend’s box office welcomed “Chappaquiddick” and “The Miracle Season.”

The former debuts at #7 with $6.2 million from 1,560 screens. The latter grabs #10 with $4.1 million from just over 1700 theaters.
