A Quiet Place nearly, almost bests Rampage

A Quiet Place nearly, almost bests Rampage

Friday afternoon, pundits were saying that New Line's Rampage appeared DOA at the United States box office, with 1st projections suggesting the $120-M tentpole movie might not earn much more than $28-M in its launch.

Dwayne Johnson returned to theaters with Rampage and snagged the top spot over the box-office weekend with a $34.5 million opening. The hit horror movie was riding a ton of momentum after a huge opening weekend grossing $50 million and great word of mouth. Close on its heels was the word-of-mouth sensation A Quiet Place in its second week in theatres, and not too far behind that was the Blumhouse horror Truth or Dare in a competitive weekend at the United States box office. "A Quiet Place", last weekend's victor, fell to second place with $32.6 million.

The top 20 titles in Oz harvested nearly $17 million, up 12 per cent on the previous weekend according to Numero. The film also brought in $22.3 million internationally and now has a worldwide gross of over $150 million. Although Rampage pulled in mixed reviews (it's at 50 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), audiences were more enthusiastic, giving it an A- CinemaScore. Though considerably less than the two films ahead of it, it does prove that audiences still enjoy a good scare now and then. While the film opened No. 1, it will only have one more weekend to bring in significant returns since Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27. It has already exceeded its production budget of $120 million in grosses, meaning it should be able to turn a profit for the studio.

Additionally, the film performed very well overseas. The movie by John Krazinski also added $22.3 million from 55 markets, for an worldwide total of $51.7 million and a global total of about $151.3 million.

An adaptation of the classic 1980s video game of the same name, Rampage reunites Johnson - a fan favorite in China, thanks to the huge local success of the Fast and the Furious franchise - with his San Andreas director, Brad Peyton. However, it will do a lot better than The Rock's more lukewarm outings, Baywatch and Hercules.

Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, which was the week's other wide release, came in third with $19 million. But not to worry, because an industrious video editor mashed up the new horror film and the workplace sitcom to create A Dwight Place.

Meanwhile, another horror film, Truth or Dare - starring Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey, debuted in third place in North America, while Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One and comedy Blockers complete the new top five.

As much I wanted to see the weekend close with an upset, 'Rampage' finished first with $34.5 million.
