What is Don't Breathe All About?

Rocky, Alex, and Money are three delinquents from Detroit who earn a career by breaking into people's homes and stealing things. Rocky wishes to go to California with her younger sister, Diddy, to get away from their controlling mother and her alcoholic lover. 

To the trio's chagrin, their fence continues to undervalue the goods they deliver. Norman Nordstrom, a Gulf War veteran, has $300,000 in cash in his house in an abandoned Detroit area, according to a tip from their fence. 

The money was said to be compensated after his daughter was murdered in a vehicle accident by a rich young woman named Cindy Roberts. The three investigate the home and discover that Nordstrom is deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly.

The group approaches the house late at night, drugs Nordstrom's rottweiler dog, and then breaks in. Nordstrom's bedroom is equipped with a sleeping gas bottle, thanks to Money. 

When Money sees a closed basement door, he believes the loot is inside and shoots the lock. Nordstrom is awoken by the disturbance, and he overpowers Money, grabs the gun, and murders him while Rocky and Alex watch calmly. 

Rocky sees Nordstrom examine his belongings in a secret safe. She unlocks the safe and grabs the money after he departs. Nordstrom, on the other hand, discovers Rocky and Alex's shoes and thinks there are more burglars, returning to find the safe empty.

What happens next is worth watching.

Reasons for the Sequel of Don't Breathe

Making another part of any movie or sequel depends on the first part. Similarly, the decision for Don't Breathe 2, can be traced back to the ratings and revenue the first part earned. 

If you see both the factors, you will see that the movie did well on both criteria. 

Don't Breathe made $89.2 million in North America and $67.9 million in other markets for a global total of $157.1 million on a $9.9 million production budget. Due to its modest production budget, the picture became a sleeper smash and was a huge financial success, with a net profit of $59.1 million when all expenditures and revenues were taken into account. Following Sausage Party, it became Sony Pictures' second late-summer surprise success of 2016.

The film has an approval rating of 88 per cent based on 238 reviews, with an average rating of 7.30/10 on the review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes. 

The film receives a score of 71 out of 100 from Metacritic, which provides a number to reviews based on 39 reviewers, indicating “generally good reviews.”

This is the reason after the film's popularity, Alvarez realised that the studio would be willing to return to that well for more money, and a sequel was confirmed just months after the first. By the end of 2018, Alvarez had declared the completion of the screenplay, and producer Sam Raimi praised the idea.
