Rampage Stomps To The Top Of The US Box Office

Rampage Stomps To The Top Of The US Box Office

Although Variety and Forbes initially reported that A Quiet Place was the victor, it turns out that Rampage actually unseated last week's champ (perhaps those outlets should wait until actually estimates are released next week, before they announce their "favorite" as the big winner).

Overseas, Rampage roared loudly in China, biting off $55 million for a foreign debut of $114.1 million and solid global start of $148.6 million. Rampage didn't fare as well as A Quiet Place with critics (with the monsters getting a 50% Rotten Tomatoes score vs. the noise sniffing critters who garnered a 95% rating), but audiences scored Rampage higher according to CinemaScore (giving the film an A- rating vs. A Quiet Place's B+). It will be celebrating a second week at #1. A Quiet Place won Friday night at the box office, but families turned out big for Rampage on Saturday to boost it into the top spot over the weekend. The over-the-top action movie pulled in $34.5 million for its opening weekend to sit in the No. 1 spot in the USA and Canada.

Rampage had a big first weekend domestically, but as EW notes, it's first-weekend haul is on the low side of industry projections, which had it making in the $35 million-$40 million.

Truth or Dare, the latest microbudget collaboration from Universal and Blumhouse, opened to strong $19.2 million in the US despite competition from A Quiet Place. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget. 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.

Flash Flood Warning Continues for Big Island
Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery, and when combined with these weather conditions, can pose a serious hazard. The tornado watch was issued at 3:13 p.m. and remains in effect until 11 p.m. for 26 counties in Southwest and central Virginia.

But with a $120 million budget, the profitability of "Rampage" is still up in the air, as box office analysts who spoke with TheWrap agree that the film likely has just two weekends to make its money before Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" gobbles up screens and consumers. Steven Spielberg's film grossed $33 million overseas this weekend, which should push it cross the $500 million mark this coming week; the current global estimated cume is $474 million.

In third place over the Friday the 13th weekend was yet another horror film, new Universal/Blumhouse release "Truth or Dare", which took in US$19.1 million - more than five times the movie's minuscule budget.

The latter is nonetheless on track to top the full weekend chart.
