'Rampage' Stomps Past 'A Quiet Place' for $34.5 Million Box Office Win

Despite the movie sporting a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and last weekend's box office hit, "A Quiet Place", looking to have a strong second weekend in theaters, the Johnson brand went into overdrive leading to "Rampage" winning the weekend at the box office with an estimated $34.5 million, according to boxofficepro. 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.

Rampage may have failed to set the United States box office alight over the weekend, but it seems audiences in the UAE can't get enough of Dwayne Johnson and his monkey business in the big budget monster flick.

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.

Another low-budget horror film also had a great debut, with the Lucy Hale-starring "Truth or Dare" taking third place with an opening-weekend domestic take of $19.2 million.

Truth or Dare, the latest microbudget collaboration from Universal and Blumhouse, opened to strong $19.2 million in the USA despite competition from A Quiet Place. Pacing for $18-21 million in receipts, the film should keep its #3 position for the weekend.

Holdovers complete the top five, with Warner Bros.' "Ready Player One" in fourth with $11 million in its third weekend. Isle Of Dogs boosted its screen count and jumped from 10th to seventh with $5 million, even as I Can Only Imagine slipped a couple of places to eighth with $3.8 million.
