"That's something that anyone can relate to on a basic level," said Davies. "This film appeals to people from all walks of life, and the proof of that is in the demographics. It played well as a matinee and at night. It's balanced on gender. It's balanced on ethnicity. It played in big cities and small towns."
"We always knew we had something special from the first screenings. But you don't get to a number like this without breaking free of the genre. I think this is about great storytelling," said Kyle Davies, head of domestic distribution for Paramount, who heaped praise on Krasinski. "We're looking forward to what else he has up his sleeve."
