'Rampage' Wins Weekend Box Office, Narrowly Beating 'Quiet Place'

A Quiet Place

SGAnalysts wonder if it can cross $100 million in the US alone this weekend

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). But again, with a massive budget like that, Rampage needs a good showing overseas to make a profit, and it's doing just that, eyeing a $50 million opening in China in addition to performing well in other overseas markets.

Reviewers generally didn't enjoy Rampage, but the film boasts a very strong A-minus CinemaScore, which tracks what audiences are saying. This appears to be the typical "one-week-only" box office event that is typical of disposable teen horror films where a 60% to 70% drop at the following week's box office is not uncommon and readily accepted by studios.

At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony, earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million. It will be celebrating a second week at #1. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget.

On Friday afternoon, New Line's Rampage appeared to be dropping like a rock at the USA box office, with first projections suggesting the big-budget movie might not earn much more than $28 million in its launch. Still, A Quiet Place managed to score $32.6 million, so the horror thriller isn't exactly suffering.

Also scaring up ticket sales this weekend is Universal and Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, which will gross about $19.1 million from 3,029 North American figures. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score. They may flip positions on the weekend chart, with "Ready Player One" earning $10-12 million and "Blockers" earning $9-11 million. We may never know, but the UAE haul helped the movie towards a $36.7M global total, which included a top spot at the Chinese box office, where the film took $15.7M on Friday night alone.

In seventh is Fox Searchlight's "Isle of Dogs", which made $5 million from 1,939 screens in its first weekend in wide release, giving it a total of $18.4 million.
