Weekend Box Office: Between The Rock And 'A Quiet Place'

Weekend Box Office: Between The Rock And 'A Quiet Place'

Overseas, "Rampage" did big business, opening with a worldwide total of $148.6 million - although, as THR points out, its $120-million budget, before marketing and advertising, will require the film to continue its strong performance next weekend.

You can see the full box office report for this weekend below, as rounded up and compiled by EW.

But while "A Quiet Place" remains the horror film of choice at the box office, Blumhouse's microbudget strategy has paid off again as the film only has a $3.5 million production budget and has also beaten pre-weekend projections of a $12-15 million start. It's a flawless blending of the two, one that has us shaking.with laughter.

Cops discovered David's bullet-riddled body after his anxious business partners reported they hadn't seen him in two weeks. Riess is about 5-feet-5 inches tall, weighs 165 pounds and has brown eyes and light blond hair, authorities said.

Based on the classic arcade game about giant monsters laying waste to cities, Rampage stars Johnson as a primatologist and former soldier who gets caught up in a rogue experiment that mutates an albino gorilla he saved from poachers - as well as a wolf and a crocodile. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics. China is the top global market for the film with a $55 million launch, while IMAX screens accounted for $10 million worldwide. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt's A Quiet Place earned a total of $32.6 million at the box office in its second weekend, good enough for second place.

In third is Universal/Blumhouse's "Truth Or Dare", which made $19 million in its opening weekend from 3,029 locations.

"Ready Player One" follows in fourth with $11.2 million (cume now $114.6 million), while a second weekend tally of $10.3 million positions "Blockers" in fifth place (cume now $36.9 million). The movie, nabbing an A- CinemaScore and playing to an ethnically diverse audience, comes on the heels of the blockbuster success of Johnson starrer Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
